This Banana Walnut Spice Loaf is a special treat, just loaded with riches. Savory Duncan Hines Spice Cake combined with ripe bananas, creamy chocolate frosting and crunchy, delicious walnuts...there's something for everyone.


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray 10 X 5 1/2 X 2 3/4-inch loaf pan with no-stick cooking spray.
  2. Blend cake mix, eggs, oil, water, sour cream and bananas in large bowl at low speed until moistened [about 30 seconds]. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Fold in walnuts. Pour into loaf pan and smooth top. Bake for 60 to 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool on rack 15 minutes and remove from pan. Cool completely.
  4. Spread top of loaf with frosting.

Nice flavor but fell apart constantly. Would try as a cup cake next time to see if it stays together better.

Didn't have a 10" loaf pan, opted to use my original Bundt pan, reduced baking time to 43 minutes and haven't iced it as yet. It's still cooling, but had to try a sliver. Delicious and moist as is! Plan to divide it up into portions tonight, place in individual sandwich bags, then into a large freezer bag. Grab a frozen portion in the morning and it will be great for coffeebreak - if it makes it to coffeebreak.
