Indescribably delicious! I usually make banana bread by hand, so I was a touch skeptical about using the bread machine, but it came out dense and golden and smelled wonderful while baking. I began with the recipe Dee provided, then I added an extra banana, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, a splash of vanilla, and in lieu of nuts, a heaping tbsp. of poppy seeds. I also added 4 oz. of plain applesauce (one of those individual cups). I used a Breadman Rapid Deluxe machine, which does not allow you to stop and then bake. Instead, I used the 1 pound setting and the "fruit/nut bread" option. It takes about 3 hours and 15 minutes to produce the loaf, but it mixes and stops and mixes and stops: the actual baking part is about an hour long. The banana bread had a more cakelike than breadlike texture (due to the addition of the applesauce) and was very dense, but oh so good! I love the ease and convenience of this recipe and I will use it often. A word of caution: use a rubber spatula to scrape the corners during the mixing phase to integrate all of the flour (be careful of the machine's mixing paddle), or some of the dry ingredients may get stuck in the corners of the pan. Enjoy!
The problem I had with this receipe is that I have a Black & Decker bread machine. There is no stop button and you can not set the cook time you would like. Once you have picked the bread/ pasta or dough that you want to make that's it the machine does the rest.
This receipe is probably really good but for people that have a Black & Decker machine I don't recommend it.
This is just like the one my mom would make! Putting the big pieces of banana in didn't work well for me, so instead I put them in a ziplock bag, removed as much air as I could and squished them with my fingers then dumped the bananas in the bread machine pan and it works great!
I don't have a bake only setting on my machine so I just left it go in the quick bread setting. It took a bit longer but was DELICIOUS. Will definately use it again especially when it is my turn to supply lunch at the card party.
I tried this yesterday and it turned out great! The next time I make I will add vanilla and walnuts, it was a little bland..I think I needed another banana (mine were pretty small) and I did like another reviewer and put them in a plastic bag first and squished it up first, this worked well..this recipe only took about 5 minutes to throw together and was by far the easiest way to make banana bread! Thanks Dee!
This is the easiest recipe for banana bread I have found. I especially like the fact that you don't have to mash up the bananas and then measure them. It is awesome!!! I also added some chopped walnuts to my bread, It was great! Thank You Dee.
Super Duper easy recipe! I use it now to make my pumpkin bread too. I just substitute the pumpkin for bananas and add nuts, spices and raisins. What a time saver from making it the old fashioned way. :-)
This bread is moist and delicious. I used the "quick bread" setting on my machine, so it took 2 hours, but it was so easy!
