 Pecan Banana Cake Mix Cake

First of all, my Pecan Banana Cake Mix Cake is buttery and soft. As wll, it’s full of banana flavor and topped with a silky glaze. You may be tempted to eat the glaze with a spoon, it’s that good.

Furthermore, I sprinkled chopped pecans over the glaze to dress the cake up a little since I was taking it to a potluck dinner. That addition is optional.

Consequently, I’m a fan of starting a cake with a mix. Cake mixes are designed to be almost full proof and tolerate a little under-beating as well as a little over-beating. As long as you don’t under or over cook the cake, starting with a cake mix is great way to learn to bake. Seems like, it’s great for kids and beginners … and even experienced cooks that either don’t have a lot of time or do have a craving! Hand raised… I always have a cake craving.

The big pound cake review


  1. 5 stars
    I tried making it and my family enjoyed it! Next time I want to substitute pecans with walnuts. I’m curious how it will turn out. Thanks for this recipe!

  2. 5 stars
    This pecan banana cake mix cake was so good! I love how easy this recipe is to make, plus the cream cheese and toasted pecans add so much flavor to it! I would definitely make this again!

  3. 5 stars
    This recipe is so delicious. I love the pairing of the butter cake mix with banana and pecan. All of the flavors come together so nicely. I’ll definitely make it again.

  4. 5 stars
    I’m not much of a baker at all. Previous all I’ve managed to do was make a straight up box mix cake for my kid’s bday. I made this recently and my guests were so impressed because it was elegant and so delicious.

  5. 5 stars
    this pecan banana mix cake was a huge hit at my family gathering! It was incredibly moist and had the perfect balance of banana and pecan flavors. Plus, using a cake mix made it so convenient and time-saving. It’s a fantastic recipe for busy bakers like me who want to impress without spending hours in the kitchen.

  6. I made this cake in a tube pan and it did not rise like yours and the frosting on your cake looked more like confection sugar it was so white and thick where the sugar frosting on your recipe is more clear. The cake tasted good, but not a fan of the frosting if I did it right.

    I like trying your recipes
