I was having a craving for banana bread. My oven is broken and my bread maker padle has seized up, so.... I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. I did, end up with a loaf of banana bread. This is hard to rate. The recipe gets points for novelty of preparation, but the rice cooker did in fact turn itself off every few minutes, so for the entire cooking time, I was required to remain "on alert" to turn it back on every five minutes. So it loses a point for fussiness. (This might be a good job for one of your kids to take charge of...) I was sceptical until about 45 minutes in, when my kitchen start to smell like banana bread! My loaf took 80 minutes to cook. It turned out of the non stick coated rice cooker like a dream and made a nice presentation with the sifted sugar on top. It was not overly sweet. I used dark brown sugar and I would suggest using a heaping 1/2 cup of sugar the next time. I also used sour cream instead of the 1/4 cup of milk. In the end, I got my banana bread fix and life was good. Thanks for posting this novel recipe Circle3.
