This easy 3 ingredient banana bread recipe will be your new go-to! It’s quick, simple and always turns out perfectly!
You see, a little more than just a few years ago, when I first found out that I was pregnant with Kennedy, the very first thing that came to my mind that I needed to do, before anything else, was learn to cook. Well, first I told Chris, but THEN, I needed to learn to cook. Not get a crib. Not learn how to change a diaper. Not figure out which preschool she would go too, or even how much all of that would cost. First, I needed to learn to cook. Because, in my mind, real moms should have a good tasty recipe up their sleeves to be able to create a nice happy home environment for their family. It just feels right to me.
So, the day after I found out, I sat down at the kitchen table with my roommate’s copy of the Joy of Cooking and I started copying down recipes that I thought seemed “mom-ish” and that I could probably learn pretty easily. The first one was for banana bread. Wait, did you catch that? That’s right. At the time, I didn’t even live with Chris yet, I still lived with a couple of friends. I know! Scandal! Well, it’s true. No point in hiding it, right? You know what though? (Spoiler alert) It all turned out just fine. 🙂 And the banana bread helped. Still to this day, if I feel like I need to create that nice, comforting, everything’s-gunna-be-alright kind of atmosphere in my house, even just for myself, I make banana bread.
And now I make it even faster! Here’s the recipe!
The Best 3 Ingredient Banana Bread Recipe
Just pretend that I didn’t forget to take a picture of the cake mix before I opened the box. 🙂 You can also find out how to make your own homemade cake mix here.
All you really need to do to make this easy banana bread is mash your bananas, mix in your eggs, and then mix in the cake mix. Bake it in 2 small loaf pans for about 40 mins at 350 degrees. If you need to mix the batter and then stick it in the fridge for a few hours before you have a chance to bake it because your baby is getting bored of sitting in his chair waiting for you to be done, that’s fine too. I tested it!
You’ll find the full printable recipe at the bottom of this post. 🙂

I’ve tried quite a few recipes for banana bread, and honestly this was one of my favorites. I definitely wouldn’t call it healthy, but it really hits the spot when you’re in that banana bread kind of mood and you just need to make something warm and comforting. You can stick the second loaf in the freezer for a treat later if you can’t stop yourself from eating more and more. Chris even took some for lunch and he’s not normally a banana bread kind of guy! I guess it just looked too good to resist!
This easy banana bread will be your new go-to! It only uses three ingredients and always works out perfectly!
- 3 Ripe bananas, mashed
- 2 Eggs
- 1 box Yellow Cake Mix
Combine the eggs and bananas in a large bowl until well blended.
Add in the cake mix and stir until everything's just combined.
Pour your batter into 2 loaf pans and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing.
Share and enjoy!
Definitely give this one a try next time you want to have that “look at me I’m such a good mom-ish type person” feeling but you only have about 2.5 minutes in which to do it. Then definitely let me know if you love it as much as I do!
