A yellow cake mix streamlines assembly of this moist golden bread. I searched a long while for a banana bread that was easy to make. This one takes no time at all, and makes two loaves. —Marie Davis, Pendleton, South Carolina

"quick & easy. I added two additional bananas and one additional egg, as did previous reviewers for more banana taste. The texture is more like cake than bread, but it's a good recipe."

"This was fast, easy and very tasty. My family enjoyed it so much. I followed the recipe exactly and both loaves rose as they should with a nice banana flavor. It's not a "poor replica" as a reviewer in 2013 remarked..."

"Very nice flavor. My loaves did not rise more than about 2 1/2 inches, so next time I may use smaller pans or put it all into one pan. I did use blueberries in place of nuts, so that may have affected the result. But, for a fast and tasty bread- it is worth making"

"I agree about adding more banana for a stronger flavor. Has the right amount of sweetness . I used my cupcake tins and shortened the bake time."

"This was too cakey, hardly had any banana flavor, fell apart when you cut it. This person should really take the time to make a banana bread from scratch, Its sooo much better than this poor replica."
