Quick and Easy Banana Bread

I made this for Sunday brunch this morning. and it was a big hit!  I just had to pass it on.  Lindsay posted it on her blog artsy-fartsy mama.  I wasn't sure it would work with the limited ingredients listed, but I had some over-ripe bananas, and not much desire to drag out a lot of stuff to make something out of them.  The garbage can was looking like a good option.  I remembered seeing this on Pinterest, so decided to give it a try.  It was easy, it did work, and my guys almost ate the whole thing...as you can see by the photo.  They spread butter on their slices.  It is VERY good!   Great idea, Lindsay.

Ingredients:
Yellow cake mix
2 eggs
3-4 over-ripe bananas
1 cup nuts and/or chocolate chips (I used pecans)

Instructions:
Mash bananas in a large bowl, then add remaining ingredients and mix well, using a hand mixer. Batter will fill 2 small loaf pans or one large loaf pan. Spray pans well with nonstick cooking spray and a little bit of flour.  Bake at 350°F for 40-50 minutes (bake longer if using larger loaf pan)
