Boredom set in this afternoon. I was quite content with reading my book, until somebody told me to switch on the TV to hear the verdict from a certain murder trial. All contentment I had was quickly washed away with pissed-offedness.
So, I went to the kitchen and took survey of what was around. I saw ripe bananas
Mini Chocolate chips:
Yellow cake mix:
some eggs, some milk, some pure vanilla extract and my kitchenaid mixer.
I swished it all together, slapped the mixture into some well greased and floured spring form pans, stuck them in the oven for
35 45 minutes and….. saved this to draft for the finished product.
It smells damn good, it is not bariatric friendly, I have no idea what I will top it with, but crisis averted, I got busy, distracted when stressed, didn’t eat anything to fill the crazy that was going on in my head…. and instead tried my hand at doctoring up a box mix with some need to use stuff I had laying around.
My children will thank me… maybe? I’ll let you know if this fails after dinner.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!
Moments after hitting publish on this, one of my children stuck fingers into the cake, a nibble here, a nibble there… the entire top of one pan missing. THIS is something my mother threw a pie at my brother for doing when I was a kid! Just sayin’
Anyway… the cake, apparently tasted pretty good. So, I sliced a sliver off the top and had the husband taste it. He approved. It didn’t suck, so I took a taste and HOLY CRAPOLY! My mad woman in the kitchen creation did not suck! Nope, its really awesome.
So, 1 box yellow cake mix
1 box instant pudding French Vanilla
3 ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup milk
16 oz sour cream
1 package mini chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
1tsp vanilla extract
mix it all together, toss into greased and floured 9″ spring pans, bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes and whola…. you figure out how to top it off. I still have no idea
