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!
I made this bread on my KA with a some amount adjustments and it came out quite well, I only used one large banana, thanks for sharing duonyte, I will make again!
My roommates loves this and they aren't that crazy about wheat bread. Great recipe!
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!!!
