1 cup ripe bananas 3/4 cup oil 1/2 cup sugar 1 box (18.5 ounce size) yellow cake mix 5 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 tablespoons brown sugar 1/2 cup chopped pecans 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Put bananas and oil in blender and liquefy. Add this mixture and sugar to cake mix. Beat thoroughly in electric mixer. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Combine brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon. Pour half of batter into greased and floured bundt pan. Sprinkle sugar, nuts and cinnamon mixture over batter. Pour remaining batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour.
Very good cake. I used walnuts instead of pecans but that was the only change.

Wonderful texture, moisture and flavor. I used 4 bananas, doubled the vanilla and substituted cinnamon/sugar for the flour in the pan, as suggested in the other comments. Will be my go to banana cake recipe now.

Very good cake. I used four bananas as suggested by other reviewer. The only thing I did different was that I dusted the bundt pan with cinnamon sugar, and I doubled the vanilla just because I don't think there is such a thing as "too much vanilla". It was a hit and every bit was eaten.

Great recipe! Just like the other reviewer, I had an abundance of overripe bananas. I searched for a recipe and found this one. It's easy and delicious! Sprinkled more nuts and some powdered sugar on top just for aesthetics! Thanks!

We ended up with an abundance of overripe bananas and did a search for recipes using a cake mix. I found this recipe. Daughter and I spent time in the kitchen together putting this recipe together and she took the picture of the cake that we submitted. It looked great and tasted great! Like the other reviewer I added a little more banana. Thanks for the recipe!

This a great banana cake recipe,easy to make,only recommendation is to use 4 bananas instead of trying to measure one cup.
