This was great! I put it in my bread machine the night before and put the timer on so in the morning i woke up to this delcious smell of the bread baking! Really chewy(but in good way!) Thanks for sharing the recipe Caroline Cooks!
I made this bread in my machine and I tried using buttermilk instead of the water but it wasn't enough liquid so I ended up using some more water anyways. I didn't add any raisins either. The bread was nice and dense and although it tasted ok with butter, it tasted really good with peanut butter. Thanks!
Caroline, this bread has an amazing flavor! I made this on my Kitchen Aid stand mixer this morning, using about 3 tablespoons melted butter in place of the oil, 1 cup water mixed with the yeast (and 1 teaspoon sugar) and 1/2 cup water mixed with the banana... and I increased the yeast to 1 tablespoon, and of coarse had to adjust a the flour, since I was preparing this bread on my stand mixer... I used rolled oats for this and added in dark raisins. I shaped mine into one long loaf and baked it in my air-convection oven at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes...it baked out beautifully! what a delicious bread this is, I will be making this again and again! thank you for sharing this great recipe!...Kitten:)
Wonderful, hearty bread, Caroline! I don't have a bread machine, but this sounded so delicious I wanted to try it anyway. I certainly wasn't disappointed! I used a KitchenAid to mix/knead the dough, let rise for an hour, then formed into a loaf and let rise 30 more minutes. I then brushed with an egg white wash, sprinkled with oats, and baked at 350F for 40-45 minutes. I don't care for raisins, so I skipped them. This bread makes wonderful toast. I haven't tried the stuffed French toast yet, but must do so as it sounds just delectable. Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe!
