French Banana Cake

My sister discovered this recipe that plays up a cake mix. It tastes a little like banana bread and has a very light texture.

French Banana Cake
2/3 cup water
1 Tbls vinegar
1 tsp baking soda
1 18.25-oz white cake mix
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup very ripe banana, mashed
2/3 cup walnuts, optional
Mix water, vinegar, and soda. Combine with cake mix, and eggs. Stir until moistened. Scrape bowl with spatula. Add mashed bananas and beat with electric mixer for 3 minutes at medium speed. Pour into a greased and floured pan. (You can use 2 rounds, 9*13, or tube pan-look at back of cake mix box to adjust cooking time according to which pan you use). Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes on wire rack. Remove from pan and cool completely.
Dust with confectioners sugar or serve with ice cream/whipped cream.
