Super Easy Banana Cake






Cake most certainly is part of the athlete's menu, especially when it includes muscle cramp alleviating, potassium-rich bananas!

                                               This tasty treat is a piece of cake- literally.


                                            Peel 4 bananas- ripe and and extra ripe is fine.

                              Blend together with a hand mixer until well blended and smooth. 


Pour in one box of yellow cake mix and stir. 



Pour into a greased cake pan

I added walnuts to half of the cake. The kids and I love them, the husband hates them, so I leave him some nut free. Marriage- it's all about compromise, right?


Bake for 40 minutes on 350 degrees. Do not over bake. Without the oil in the cake, it will dry out quicker than a regular mix.  For a moister cake, reduce cooking time by a few minutes. 

*By my ciphering, these are about 200 calories each if the cake is cut into 10 slices. A little more with the nuts. But they're high in protein and omega 3s, soo they shouldn't count. Come to think of it, neither should the vitamin-rich bananas. Or the incredible edible egg! Seems we're down to 160 calories a slice. Enjoy.

  1. Ooh, my big and little guy would love that! I currently have a banana bread sitting on the counter. I need something new to try with them. Thanks!

    1. This is so easy too. Much easier than banana bread- though it's delicious too. Works great with scratch and dent bananas too, which makes it as cheap as it is easy.
