A boxed corn bread mix gets a tasty treatment from Janice France of Depauw, Indiana when dressed up with bananas and chopped walnuts. The moist golden loaves are a great addition to a brunch buffet or bake sale.

"This is a great quick way to get banana bread in and out of your oven in no time! Taking others' suggestion I added vanilla. Usually make only half a recipe at one time but using two bananas. Very moist but the star ingredient is the addition of walnuts. Don't skip them in this recipe!!"

"I've been making this recipe for years as a great alternative to using up aging bananas. However, some manufacturers have started shrinking the sizes of their product, so be mindful of the 8.5 ounces required for this bread when selecting a brand."

"Made this with our favorite corn bread mix but putting banana in it just didn't make it taste great. My husband isn't a picky eater but he didn't like it either. This is not something I'd make again."
