This Quick Banana Cake is so easy to make and is delicious. It is very moist and tastes wonderful with coffee or milk, as a dessert or just anytime.  If you like the taste of bananas, you will love this banana cake.  I keep making this banana cake different ways since it is a banana cake that is very versatile and made with a mix.  See two other ways to make it below.

1 (18.5 ounce) box Kroger Yellow Butter Recipe Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 stick butter or margarine, softened
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with mixer.  Spray a 9 x 13 inch cake pan.  Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until done in middle.  Let cool before frosting.
Frosting for Quick Banana Cake:
1/2 cup butter or margarine or 1 stick, softened
1 ripe banana, peeled and mashed
1 (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
3 to 3 1/2 cups confectionery sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
Mix all ingredients in large bowl with mixer until of spreading consistency.. Spread on cooled cake. 
Can sprinkle nuts over cake if so desired.
Note:  I keep this cake in the refrigerator.  
Here is another version of this cake you will really enjoy.  Make the cake by the directions above and add the following icing.  I usually punch a few holes in the cake when I use this so it can penetrate the cake and add the chocolate throughout.  This one you won’t be able to leave alone if you are a chocolate lover!
Quick Banana Cake with Chocolate Frosting
Cooked Chocolate Frosting with Nuts
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick butter or margarine or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons
1/4 cup 100% cocoa
7 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup nuts, Optional (I used walnut pieces)
Bring milk, butter and cocoa to a boil on top of the stove.  Remove from heat and stir in sugar, vanilla and nuts.  Spread over cake.
The third way is made in a bundt pan using a white cake mix instead of yellow and I added one cup of coconut to the cake ingredients and 1 teaspoon of almond extract.  If you make the bundt pan version bake at same temperature, spray pan and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.  I used the cream cheese frosting above but added 1 teaspoon clear almond extract and sprinkled some coconut on top of the cake.  See Photo below:

  7. I made this today using a Butter Recipe Chocolate cake mix. It was delish! I was pressed for time so I cheated and frosted it with a ready-made fudge frosting mixed with a jar of marshmallow fluff. I’m looking forward to trying this as you’ve got it in the recipe – especially the banana cream cheese frosting!
