Banana Spice Cake

Susan Feliciano


Leftover bananas again, and no one to eat them. So I made a cake. This one is really easy because it uses a cake mix.

  • 1/2 c
  • 1 c
    chocolate baking chips (optional)

How to Make Banana Spice Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350° (325° for dark or coated pan).
    Spray a 9x13-inch cake pan with Baker's Joy, or grease and flour pan.
  2. With a mixer in a large mixing bowl, mash bananas. Add orange juice, buttermilk, and egg whites. Blend well. Add cake mix in 2 parts, beating well after each part. Beat for a total of 2 minutes at medium speed.
  3. Spread cake batter in prepared pan and bake 32-35 minutes (maybe 3-4 minutes longer if using dark pan at 325°). When done, cake will spring back when lightly touched. Cool cake in pan. Frost with your favorite frosting - we like cream cheese frosting. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.
  4. VARIATION: to make this with a plain yellow cake mix, omit the orange juice and increase the buttermilk to 1/2 cup. If desired, stir in 1 cup chocolate baking chips. Mix and bake as directed above. Frost with Chocolate Glaze for Bundt Cakes.
