Take banana bread to a whole new level with the German chocolate banana bread. Made with German chocolate cake mix, it couldn’t be easier.
As you know I like to celebrate obscure food holidays and today is no exception because today is National German Chocolate Cake Day. Although it may not be my first choice when it comes to dessert options I do enjoy a good German chocolate cake or a related dessert such as German chocolate brownies. Today’s recipe can be enjoyed for dessert or breakfast because it’s half banana bread, half German chocolate cake.
How did this come to be? Mashed bananas, pecans, and coconut are added along with the usual suspects to a box of German chocolate cake mix. After scooping the batter into a loaf pan I sprinkled more coconut and pecans halves on top. There may not be any of the signature German chocolate cake frosting involved but the flavor of the toasted pecans on top made up for it.
