My latest addiction

I don’t think my Mom is getting her bundt pan back.

There’s a running joke in my family (well, really just with my Dad) about how my sister always steals his good cookware.  The man is always yelling about his missing pots.  So, I figure if the attention is focused there, no one will miss the bundt.

I’m telling you – this pan has to be older than me (save your wise cracks for another time, please) and nothing sticks to it.  Meanwhile, give me a new, basic round pan and I’m lucky if half my cake isn’t cemented to it.  Hmmm.

I’ve been making this for as long as I can remember, and always called it banana bread…but really, if you’re using cake mix, shouldn’t it be called CAKE?  I think so.  Although, I usually use loaf pans…maybe we’ll call it bread when it’s in a loaf, and cake when it’s in a bundt.  Cool?

So the next time you’ve got some overripe bananas, bake this deliciousness…whatever you wanna call it.

Banana Walnut Cake

1 box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
3-5 ripe mashed bananas
1 cup chopped walnuts
confectioners’ sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined.

Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan (or 2 loaf pans) and bake for approximately 45 minutes (30 to 35 minutes for loaf pans).

Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.  Once cooled, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if desired.

    I knew there must be a reason Mom doesn’t cook anymore. We have nothing to cook with. Dad
