Banana Bread with Cake Mix Recipe

1 yellow cake mix
1 stick melted butter OR 1/3 c. vegetable oil
3 eggs
3 mashed bananas

Oven 350. Melt butter if using. (I used the oil). In large bowl, mix cake mix, eggs & bananas. Beat in melted butter & mix well. You can also add 1 c. walnuts but my banana bread loving daughter hates nuts, so I didn't. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans & bake 45 min. or until it tests done. This banana bread is very good, & it doesn't taste like it was made with a cake mix. A very good way to get rid of brown bananas, which I always seem to have more of in the heat of summer! My kids inhaled it!

The question I raised in Friday's newsletter re Chris in NM post in FB was for Navajo Fried Bread. Not tried and tested but this is the recipe:

Navajo Fry Bread Recipe

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp rapid rise or active dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm milk (110 degrees)
1 Tbsp butter or shortening , melted
Vegetable oil , for frying (sometimes I use half olive oil)

In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, yeast and salt. Whisk melted butter into warm milk and pour milk mixture into dry ingredients. Stir until mixture comes together and slightly forms a ball, dough should be fairly sticky (if needed you can add in a little more flour or a little more water to reach a good consistency but try not to overwork the dough). Cover dough with plastic wrap and allow to rest 10 minutes. Heat 1 inch of oil in a large cast iron skillet to 350 - 360 degrees over stove top. Divide rested dough into 8 equal pieces. Working with floured hands and one piece of dough at a time (keep other pieces covered with plastic wrap), pat dough out on a lightly floured surface into a 6-inch circle and gently drop into hot oil, and cook until golden brown, then flip and cook opposite side until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain onto a plate or baking sheet lined with paper towels. Serve warm with Navajo Taco topping or for dessert, spread with honey butter.

Any comments or recommendations please?

This is for Ginger, who wanted recipes for southwestern salad dressing. You can use store bought or homemade salsa. Use the strength of salsa that you prefer, mild, hot, extra hot or spicy. Using ranch dressing in place of the sour cream is another alternative. This is great on lettuce salads, pasta salads, chicken salads, and as a dipping sauce for vegetables and meats.

1/4 cup Mayonnaise

Salt And Pepper, to taste
2 Limes, Juiced

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed. Store in refrigerator. Can substitute ranch salad dressing for the sour cream.

Someone was looking for a bread/cake pan for the crockpot. I believe it means a loaf size pan which is also the same size pan that a loaf of bread is baked in or some cake recipes are also baked in.

This is in response to the comment by Sylvia in Scotland. I have a recipe that I've tweaked somewhat from several recipes for Dill Bread. The recipe I have is unusual in that it is a yeast bread. I would be happy to post it if Sylvia, or anyone, is interested.
