Lazy Ass Banana Bread
I found an awesome-looking recipe for lazy banana bread on Pinterest the other day and since we had a few bananas going bad, I naturally had to try it. I did make a few amendments. First, I only had three bananas, so I tossed in an egg for extra moisture. Then, I only had a pineapple upside down cake mix. Which is just white cake mix with extra stuff, so I ignored the crushed pineapple and used the mix. I separated it out into two pans as directed, but I think I would have been better off using a single large pan since they were pretty short little cakes. I went ahead and tossed the brown sugar mix for the pineapple upside down cake on top because I figured... why not? It gives kind of a nice coffee cake sort of effect.
All in all, the cakes taste really good - banana-y, dotted with semi-sweet chocolate chips, and that little crustiness from the brown sugar topping. I'll definitely try this one again when we have bananas to use up, though again I'll probably go for a single loaf next time unless we're swimming in bananas. Still it's a great way to make some seriously easy, seriously lazy banana bread when the fruit's about to die on you.
