Homemade Banana Muffins Recipe using Boxed Cake Mix

I love to bake and I usually bake from scratch. With that said, my sister was telling me about a homemade Banana Muffins "Cheater" Recipe that she likes to use when she is pressed for time & doesn't have an hour or two to spend baking from scratch.

For this recipe...you will use a boxed mix of white or yellow cake mix!

Homemade Banana Muffins Recipe

1 box Yellow or White Cake Mix
(eggs, water and vegetable oil - as directed on the back of the cake mix box)
3 to 4 ripe bananas

I decided to try out her cheater recipe by using a box of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix. I followed the directions on the back of the box and added in the rest of the ingredients. I then took 3 ripe bananas and mashed them up, then stirred them into the muffin batter.

I lined my muffin tin with paper muffin wrappers and filled each cavity 85% of the way full. I placed the muffin tin into the oven and baked them at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes or until they were done. Once done, I left them cool slightly and buttered them up with some organic honey butter.

Wow...these muffins are delicious! They are very moist and flavorful! Next time around I will try out the recipe using a box of white cake mix to see if I get the same yummy results! (and...I might throw in some semi-sweet chocolate chips as we love chocolate chip banana muffins too!).

I saved about 15 minutes of baking time by using a boxed cake mix as my base and I certainly dirtied a lot less dishes in the preparation process! LOVE...this cheater recipe! Enjoy!
