Fast and Easy Banana Cake

This is another recipe re-do that I have used again and again. It is made with a yellow cake mix and has just the right amount of banana flavor. For those reasons, this has become one of my favorite fast and easy cake recipes. In addition to being fast and easy, it calls for very few ingredients but still retains that sweet, melt in your mouth texture. You'll can serve this as a dessert or as a complement with your breaskfast or brunch. It works as well in any form from cupcakes to buntcakes. Try it for yourself!

Banana Cake:
1 box of yellow cake mix (I have tried it with a gluten-free cake mix too)
1 small box of vanilla pudding
2 bananas (mashed)
3 eggs
1/3 cup water
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons of oil
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Smash bananas in a mixing bowl.

Combined: cake mix, pudding, eggs, sour cream, water , oil, and baking powder.
Blend together until well mixed.

Pour batter into greased and floured bundt pan.
Bake 40-45 minutes @ 350 degrees. turn over onto plate to cool and frost.

Frost and decorate as desired. It is delicious!

Here is the recipe for the cream cheese frosting I use regularly-

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 8 oz box of cream cheese
1 cube of butter
(both softened at room temperature)
Milk as needed (canned milk or cream works well too)
up to 6 cups of powdered sugar
(taste and check out the consistency as you go)

Add food coloring if desired
