With three very spotty bananas on my counter, I knew I had to act fast or they would be compost.
Just, fyi, I am not much of a baker or cook. I do have a favourite banana bread recipe, but I knew I had to find something easier and faster than my old standby.
Pinterest to the Rescue!
I turned to my Pinterest account and found an intriguing recipe for three ingredient banana cake from creeklinehouse.com. (See the original pin.)
I had three ripe bananas, eggs, and a cake mix that had been in my pantry for far too long. I figured I had nothing to lose.
After assembling my ingredients for a commemorative photo, I set to work mashing the bananas. I added three eggs, not the two called for in Courtenay’s original post, because the cake mix called for three.
Then I stirred in the cake mix and mixed it up with my electric mixer.
Really! Only Three Ingredients!
Note that when you mix this up, you do not add oil or water. There really are just three ingredients, the cake mix, the bananas, and the eggs.
I poured the mixture into a 9×13 pan that I had sprayed with Pam non-stick cooking spray and baked it following the directions on the cake mix box.
As you can see in my photo, the cake mix was for a Devil’s Food cake. It was all I had, and I knew the cake mix would ensure that my cake would be tasty.
How good can a 3 ingredient banana cake be?
I was more concerned about the texture and appearance of the finished product. Would it rise properly? Would it be soft and feel good to the palate?
I needn’t have worried. The cake rose without a problem, looked great, and tasted great, too.
I served it with berries and Cool Whip. Delicious!
