Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread II

"A delicious sweet cakey bread. Note: Most bread machines have a fruit and nut cycle. This should be set at Fruit and Nut Cycle and wait for the beep before adding your bananas and nuts. If you do not do this, the bread comes out tasteless."

Great tasting banana bread!!! I used the sweet bread setting on my bread maker, which had the extended beeper to add bananas and nuts later. I'll definitely make this again. An interesting way to use bananas up in my bread maker.

I was a little worried during the kneading cycle with this bread. The Dough wasn't forming a ball the way it usually does. I considered adding more flour but decided to wait and see how the recipe turned out. While this bread is very tasty (especially the day after it's made)I was a bit disappointed that it failed to rise. However, I will make this bread again because it is quite yummy. Most of all, my 1 year old son loves it drizzled with honey on top.

I added 1 cup of flour more to recipe - it turned out wonderfully well! So, flour amount should be 2 1/2 cups. Great recipe - next time I will add 1 tsp. vanilla too.

Really good! I mashed the banana slices slightly with a fork before adding to the machine. I also added 1 teaspoon cinnamon like previous reviewers mentioned. It smelled heavenly while baking!

So I did alter the recipe a little, so I don't blame the recipe of how it turned out, and for some people it was probably a awesome recipe. I checked all of the ratings before I started the recipe and there was a great number of reviews that mentioned it didn't cook all the way and that it needed another cup of flour. So I added a extra cup of flour, and I added 3/4 cup of each chopped walnuts and chocolate chips. The bread came out done, my husband even thought it was burned until I told him it had brown sugar in it. The main issue is that I love very moist banana bread, and this was not moist at all. It was very dry and little sweetness flavor in it. I think it needed another banana and maybe a little less flour than the xtra cup. Some people like their bread dry instead of super moist. I am affraid if I hadn't added that flour I may have had uncooked bread, but it didn't need an entire xtra cup. All bread machines are different when they cook, so maybe that was why everyone had some of the different issues. With the walnuts and chocolate chips it needed to be a little more moist and probably another banana! Thanks for the recipe! It is defininately something I can work with to make what I want! Keep rollin in those recipes! I love em!

This recipe is quick, easy and delicious! I actually didn't have any walnuts and used pecans instead. I also added 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and maybe 1/4 cup of chocolate/peanut butter chips. Everybody loved it, and it was so easy to make in the bread machine! Thanks :o)
