Banana Nut Rum Cake

1 yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 cup water
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup rum (2 mini-bottles)
4 med. ripe bananas
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mash bananas and set aside.  In a large bowl combine cake mix, eggs, water, butter and rum.  Beat with electric mixer about 1 minute.  Add bananas and pecans and beat until blended.  Pour into 2 loaf pans and bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. 

Comments - This idea came to me when I discovered 2 mini-bottles of rum in the cabinet and some bananas that were ripe and needed to be used, quickly.  The 1/2 cup of rum mixed with the bananas gives this cake/bread a deliciously, unique taste.  The only changes I've come up with so far would be to add coconut instead of or with the nuts.  You could use strawberries instead of the bananas or change the flavor of the cake mix.  This is a must try!
