Veganized & Banan-ized BRM GF Vanilla Yellow Cake Mix

Yesterday afternoon, my 4-year old, Todd, said, “Let’s bake”!

He promptly pulled open the pantry door, and the first thing I spotted was our recently purchased BRM GF Vanilla Yellow Cake Mix. Todd likes to gather ingredients, so I instructed him to take the cake mix bag to the kitchen…

We read the ingredient list on the bag…

1 package BRM GF Vanilla Yellow Cake Mix
3 eggs
1/2 C melted butter or vegetable oil
1/2 C water

My veganized & “banan-ized” recipe looks is this:

1 package BRM GF Vanilla Yellow Cake Mix
(+add 1/2 t cinnamon)
3 ripe bananas
1/2 C Earth Balance
1/2 C organic soy milk (EdenSoy Extra Original)

Standing on a chair at the counter, Todd helped peel the bananas. He “Hulk-smashed” them with a potato masher. Next, he “Hulk-smashed” the (not melted) Earth Balance (EB) into the bashed bananas. He spooned the banana-EB mash into one mixing bowl, and he helped pour the soy milk into the same bowl. Meanwhile, I added cinnamon to another mixing bowl containing the dry cake mix. Finally, Todd helped stir the batter as I gradually added the dry mixture to the wet mixture.

I greased 2 glass loaf pans with coconut oil, and baked the cakes at 325 degrees for 40 minutes. The cakes sat in their pans for ~5 minutes, then I flipped them out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.

The resulting “banan-ized” cake had a subtle caramelized outer coating, and a spongy, dense inside. 3 bananas = excellent binding!

Frequently, Todd won’t even try the baked goods he makes, but this time he ate most of a slice!
