Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake 

I sort of have a thing for cake box desserts such as this Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake. They are just so easy to make and usually only require a few ingredients. I especially love this recipe because it makes 2 cakes. Keep one for yourself and give one away to a friend or neighbor. This is also a great recipe to use up those last few bananas before they go bad, which is rare in our house because my son LOVES bananas. Not to mention the way these cakes make the house smell while they are cooking! No need for fancy potpourris when you are cooking this.

 Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake

Ingredients:

1 – Box Devils Food Cake Mix

1 – Box Instant Chocolate pudding (3.9 oz.)

2 – Bananas (Ripe, how they look when you make banana bread)

2 – tsp. Instant Coffee

1 – Cup Milk

4 – eggs

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

First mash the bananas. Next, pour in the cake mix, instant pudding, instant coffee, and milk, mix well. In a separate bowl add 4 eggs and give them a few whisks; pour whisked eggs in with the rest of ingredients. Mix well. Split the batter between 2 well-greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let loaf cakes cool for about 10 minutes then turn out on a clean surface to let them finish cooling. Once cakes are completely cool glaze them.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake Box Cookies

Lately I have been working on re-photographing some of my recipes, like these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake Box Cookies. The photos are still not where I want them to be but they are 100 times better then some of the originals. I was blessed to have one of my best friends help me with this. She was my sous chef, dish washer, hand model, and comic relief. She even painted her nails for me! I’m working on making her a permanent helper, shhh 😉 . I’ve offered to pay her with the left over food =P I think she’s ok with that 😉

Cake box cookies are so awesome. I love how easy they are to make. Normally, they require few ingredients and who doesn’t have a few cake boxes in the pantry? I have made everything from orange cake box cookies to sugar cake box cookies to these Chocolate Chocolate Cake Box Cookies. I wish I could tell you of my favorite cake box cookies recipe but I just love them all. It would be too hard to choose! That being said, these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake Box cookies will make the perfect addition to your holiday baking list. They are soft, chewy, and everything you want in a cookie. I have also added a hint of coffee into the recipe which compliments the chocolate flavor perfectly. The coffee is not over powering, it is just enough to add a little kick to these cookies. In fact, I know people who hate coffee and LOVE these cookies. My husband being one of them.

If you give this recipe a try I would love to hear from you!
