Bake a Batch to Share

It won't be long before the hustle and bustle starts for the holidays, but with a little pre-planning, you can whip up these wonderful mini bread loaves to share with family and friends. I love the aroma of them baking in the oven! I used instant coconut cream instant pudding instead for a change.

Mini Banana Bread

1 Pkg. yellow cake mix
1 Pkg. banana cream or vanilla flavor instant pudding (3.4 oz. size)
4 eggs
1 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Beat first 5 ingredients in a large bowl with mixer 2 mins. or until well blended. Add bananas and nuts; mix well until blended.

Pour into 5 mini loaf pans sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake 40 min. at 350 degrees or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool completely.

These mini loaves will keep about 3 days at room temperature or 3 months in the freezer.

These WOULD make wonderful Christmas gifts - now why didn't I think of this! I have so many folks that would just love to receive this as a gift - and I LOVE that you used the coconut pudding for a change. Great idea!
