Banana Spice Cake Mix Recipe

I always thought bananas need to be utilized more often with yummy cake desserts. If you need to get rid of those ripe bananas you just found the best tasting cake around. Doesn't need a thing other than a dusting of powdered sugar or better yet cinnamon sugar. This is the best cake for tea, coffee or just because you need a sweet pick me up.

Banana Spice Cake Mix Recipe

1 cake mix spice cake flavored (18.25 size)
1 box instant vanilla pudding
3 mashed very ripe bananas
4 eggs
1 cup water
1/4 cup oil

Place in a large mixing bowl and beat around 4 minutes with electric beater. Pour into 13x9 greased pan or bundt pan. Bake in preheated oven at 350 hot oven until middle comes out clean with toothpick around 50 to 55 minutes.

Cool completely unless making the rum glazed cake then proceed with optional rum glaze. Top with real whipped cream and cinnamon sugar if you like or just powdered sugar. Store leftover cake in the refrigerator.

Optional  Rum Glaze Adult Topping: 

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup dark or light rum
1/4 cup water
1 cup sugar
Boil all ingredients together for 5 minutes. After cake is cooked, poke holes evenly all over the cooked cake while warm and pour this mixture over the cake. Note:  The longer this cake stay in the refrigerator the better it gets.
