Banana Bread - Quick Bread for Machines

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2014
I really liked this recipe for the ease, but even though I used 3 bananas as several reviewers suggested, I still felt the banana flavor was weak. I think next time, I'll add about 1/2 tsp of salt. It's been a long time since I've seen a cake or quick-bread recipe without salt in it, anyway.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
Very nice, chewy bagels. They may not be huge, but I made 8, and could only fit 6 on my baking sheet. I didn't use the egg wash, but think I will next time, because the toppings didn't really stick. And in Chile, there aren't any good ovens, so the bottoms got a bit too brown while the tops weren't browned that evenly. The folks who are complaining probably don't know that a bagel is SUPPOSED to be chewy. I did boil them a bit longer than 2 minutes, because that's what makes them chewy. Also, I didn't twirl them, just stretched them. Easier and got holes that stayed. Also, this is the fastest, easiest bagel recipe I've ever seen. My machine has a rising included in the dough cycle. So, I just let it rise. I've never made bagels that didn't call for a first rise until doubled in bulk, anyway, and it worked beautifully. Will be making them again.
