3 Ingredient Banana Bread – Super Affordable and Easy to Whip Up!

Make a moist and delicious banana bread using only THREE ingredients! Starting with a cake mix makes this recipe super easy.

EASY 3 INGREDIENT BANANA BREAD

I am a HUGE fan of Banana bread, it is something I have always loved! I had bought some bananas and didn’t get them all ate up and I thought, perfect timing for some banana bread.

When skimming through Pinterest awhile back I saw this recipe. It is a 3 ingredient banana bread, so I didn’t write it down as I knew I could remember how to make it!

I have to say for using a store bought cake mix, this still taste like homemade banana bread. I will admit I was a bit leary of how it would taste, but I am pleasantly surprised!

When making banana bread I normally whip up this walnut banana bread, that is absolutely delicious!

You can also decide to add nuts into the bread or even chocolate chips, granted it won’t be 3 ingredient banana bread after that, but still super easy to make! If you like, you can also add a dash or two of cinnamon.

I whipped out my KitchenAid Stand Mixer and in minutes I had this ready to go in the oven, and before I knew it, fresh delicious bread waiting to be devoured!

3 Ingredient Banana Bread

3 Ingredient Banana Bread Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Yellow Cake Mix – If you want to change up the flavor, you can use a Devil’s Food or other flavor in its place.
  • Large Eggs
  • Ripe Bananas – Bananas that are just starting to soften and have some dark brown spots are best, but I have used more ripe bananas and they work too.

How to Make Banana Bread with Only 3 Ingredients:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Coat two loaf pans (I used 8×4 inch) with cooking spray. Alternatively you can use one large loaf pan.

Smash the bananas in a large bowl. 

Add in the cake mix and eggs.

Stir until well mixed and pour into baking pan(s). 

Bake 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. If making one large loaf, you may need to bake longer.

Remove from oven and allow pans to cool on baking rack for 15 minutes. Then remove the bread from the pans and continue to cool on cooling racks.

I hope you all enjoy this recipe! It is something to do when you don’t have a ton of time or maybe all the ingredients on hand for banana bread! Next time I will add some nuts in it I think!

I was shocked at how much this tasted like homemade banana bread. I have made this numerous times and it is amazing every time!

    I buy bananas every week and always end up throwing one or two in the freezer for banana bread. I didn’t know you could make it with a cake mix!

      It is so easy and quick I love it! Plus it doesn’t take more than a minute to whip up, and you have a delicious bread waiting for you when it is done!

    Interesting. I make mine from scratch but my kiddos do not have the patience. Maybe I can show this to them and they can bake for me for a change!

    You know how you have certain things always on hand? One of my staples is cake mix. In case of a natural disaster, I should be able to whip up a German Chocolate cake, right? I love that this only has 3 ingredients..and 3 that I have right now.

    I was just thinking about making banana bread today, since I have a bunch of over ripe bananas. I actually also have this cake mix on-hand as well. Yay! I am excited to try this super simple recipe!

    I am trying this with a gluten free cake mix. I have a friend who eats gluten free, so I am always looking for recipes that I can easily convert to gluten free when I want to give her a baked treat!
