There are so many things that can be done with Betty Crocker cake mixes...including this recipe of course. I've been fiddling with BC cake mix desserts for years and have found that almost any type of quick bread comes out 'just right' given a little common sense. If my bananas are small I use more and it may take a bit longer to cook if I use half applesauce and half bananas. Cooking times will vary greatly depending on oven temperature and whether or not the TOP of the pan is in the middle of the oven, and what type of pan is used. These recipes are good, standardized recipes. If another brand of cake mix is used be aware that the results may not be the same. And for the person whose chocolate chips sunk, try shaking the chips in a dusting of flour and adding them last by folding not mixing. They will stay disbursed throughout the batter. Some things not mentioned in this recipe that can be added to the basic recipe are cooked oatmeal with apples or raisins, applesauce, cranberries or blueberries, well drained pineapple...the list is almost endless. Cake mix cookies are also as versatile.
