Mix cake mix according to pkg directions & add the ginger, cinnamon & nutmeg. pour over bananas.
Place a dbl length of dry paper towels (**)over the TOP of crockpot rim & a sheet of foil to seal it in , place lid on tight & cook for 2- 2 1/2 hrs...check after 2...the sides should be brown & when you touch the center of the cake it should spring back.
turn crockpot off & using the foil remove the cake & set aside to cool for 30 min. after cooling take a plate & place over the cake & invert it , remove foil
