This bread is so soft and tasty! I made it in the bread machine from start to finish on the basic white bread cycle. Although I pulled it out about 15 mins early because the top crust was beginning to get too dark. Next time, I think I'll use the sandwich setting for a lighter crust so it doesn't burn. The banana is subtle, but I don't mind because banana isn't my favorite it's Hubby's. My loaf wasn't dense at all but light as air. I almost felt like I was eating that worthless cheap white bread from the store. I used extra poppy seed and extra vanilla, so it was more like a dessert bread. Looking forward to making this again.

I made this entirely in the bread machine on the regular white bread cycle. It baked up nicely and had a good light texture for a wheat bread. The banana was very subtle, I wish I could have tasted it more. Other than that it was a very nice bread.

I'm not going to rate this as it didn't work for me & it may be because I did it on rapid cycle. When the cycle had finished the bread was still doughy in the middle. I tried to save it by continuing baking in the oven but it didn't work. I got to taste the edge bits that were cooked & it did taste good but it just didn't cook fully for me, I may try this again on a full cycle & reserve my rating until then. Thanks for posting!

Very hearty (dense) loaf of mildly flavored banana bread. We're out of wholewheat (I've been lazy about getting the grinder going--it's in my c-o-l-d backporch!); so added a bit extra white flour to compensate. As you suggested, I pulled mine from the machine (I love handling dough), and made mine in a loaf pan in the oven. Baked up beautifully and when cooled slices SO nicely! Took your suggestion and made some very NICE French toast--hearty and filling. Added about 1 tsp of banana flavoring to the egg-milk for dipping the bread, and that added a bit of punch to the flavor. Will file this one to have on hand for those days when the bananas get ahead of me!!!
