Me think you could do it.

A banana bread is more a cake than a bread, and the additional ingredients (mostly sugar) in the pancake mix will not impact that much in the result.


The recipes called for 2 cups of flour. I just had 1 1/2 cups just used what I had it turned out fine.

  • Hello Colleen, your answer is unusual, as pointed out in Divi's comment, but I think it's OK. You not only clarified how much flour in total (which normally would have been an edit to your question instead of an answer), but you also reported what you did and how well it worked, and this is an answer to our standards. So thank you for coming back to share that info. You can even mark your own answer the accepted one, no problem there.
