Banana Quick Bread : 2 Reviews

I love making Banana Quick Bread Mix but I add the following things to the mix--depending if I am using one or two boxes--I add about 1 cup chopped walnuts and 3 to 4 very ripe bananas--mashed up-Plus I double up on the ingredients--my only problem is I do not have the pan you list on the box--I have either a 9 x 13" pan or 7.1x11x2--so I can never figure what the correct cooking time is--can you please help out or at least start to list the 9 x 13 pan on the box


Hi Norma! There are a variety of pan sizes you can use and those are listed on our website at this link:
When combining two boxes it is best to use either two loaf pans or you can definitely use a 9x13 pan, following the same bake time and temperature as a loaf pan, which is 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes. Adding the walnuts and bananas sounds delicious!!! Thanks for your question and happy baking!
