This is a super easy recipe. I even messed up and added the banana too early, and it turned out just fine. My bread machine wanted to let the dough rise, but there's no yeast in it, so i skipped ahead and told it to mix and bake. I let it bake for sixty mins in the bread machine. (I imagine, you could do this in a mixing bowl & oven just as easy). The bread is moist and delicious. About to make a second loaf with some chocolate chips!
1st off...16 Packets of Splenda = 2/3 Cup of Sugar
2nd off...Use the 1lb setting on your Bread Machine
Here is my version of this recipe:
1 1/2 cup Bread Flour (Can use All Purpose Flour)
16 packets Splenda (or 2/3 cup Sugar or ½ Sugar & Brown Sugar)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup Applesauce (or vegetable oil)
3 Large Eggs (or 2 Extra Large Eggs)
1/4 cup Reg or Vanilla Yogurt (or Sour Cream)
1 teaspoon vanilla Extract
2/3 cup mashed banana (or 2-3 bananas)

Overall: I love this Banana Bread, it has a got to get another and another slice taste for sure! I would have to say that this is some of the best Banana Bread I have ever had. Moist and light tasting makes this a favorite for yourself and others. I guarantee if you take this Banana Bread to work, it will be gone within minutes if not seconds :-)
Moist, favorable, and beautiful. Comes out perfect. The first time I made this, some flour hid under the bead machine's paddle and was left on the end of the loaf, so now I mix it in a bowl then transfer to machine. Problem solved. My Breadman doesn't have a "cake" setting. Instead, use "batter breads" setting and add bananas and nuts after first mix cycle. Thanks for the recipe.
I never thought Banana bread in a bread machine could taste so good.The texture was firm and moist and the smell was wonderful, I used rasins instead of nuts and again wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!! Bill
Loved this banana bread! The first 2 times I made it on the "cake" setting, it came out dark brown. I am trying it on the "sweet" setting right now. I hope it comes out much lighter this time. My Sunbeam Bread Machine states that if a recipe has a lot of sugar you should always use the "sweet" setting.
this was very good. I'm a beginner with the bread machine and was very easy to make. I substituted vanilla low fat yogurt because I didnt have sour cream and it turned out great.
5 out of 5 stars from me.......delicious! I did it exactly as the original recipe instructed and it turned out beautiful and very tasty.
I got a bread machine for Christmas and had messed up about every thing that I tried to do. This was the most delicious Bread that I made and it was so easy. I did tweak the recipie a bit by using a prior suggestion. I did not have sour cream so I used dry buttermilk in its place. I also used bread flour instead of all purpose flour. Loved this recipie.
This is a tasty and easy recipe but I want to caution others not to use the mini 1 - 1.5 pound breadmaker unless you adjust the time. I only had a quick bread setting and it didn't get done. I put it in the oven another 15-20 minutes and it was fine. I'll be making this again but will have to split the recipe if I want to use the breadmaker.
Yummy, yummy!! I made this the other morning with my little cousins (3 &4 y/o) and they had a lot of fun. We used 3 large bananas, slenda, and pecans. The 4 y/o claimed not to like banana bread and he ended up eating the most of it!! :D I wish the texture was a little lighter, but other than that it's a great recipe!! Thanks!!
