Easy, Short-Cut Banana Bread
3 ripe bananas, mashed (leave a bit chunky)
2 2/3 cup any brand pancake mix labeled “complete” (“buttermilk complete” also OK)
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 cup chopped walnuts and/or chocolate chips (optional)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350º F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, add bananas, eggs, milk, vanilla and oil. Add pancake mix and sugar. Mix well. Fold in nuts and/or chips. Pour into the greased pan and cook for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Toothpick or wooden skewer should come out clean from the center.
Cool in pan for 5 minutes then transfer to wire rack and cool an additional 15 minutes. Serve warm with butter or plain. You can even toast slices the next day for a great breakfast!
