Add the eggs, butter & bananas into the bread pan and then add the other ingredients. Try to follow order of the ingredients listed above so that liquid ingredients are placed in the bread pan first and the dry ingredients second. Be aware that the bread pan should be removed from the bread machine before you start to add any ingredients. This helps to avoid spilling any material inside the bread machine. The bread machine should always be unplugged when removing the bread pan.

Making this right now in my Hamilton Beach model# 29882 machine. Luckily I was watching as it starting mixing because the egg/banana/milk slurry was just spinning in the center while most of the flour was staying put on the edges! I helped it along with a rubber spatula and it mixed just fine, but seems awfully wet. The baking cycle is beginning now… Fingeres crossed!

For what it’s worth, please be aware that no two bread machine models are alike. If your machine is not identical to the authors, your results WILL BE different. Any recipe that does not identify the specific brand/model of the machine used, plus all settings and times (including loaf size) the end result will be questionable. This is probably why the previous replies vary so wildly.

Hi Marsha. Not necessarily – the Oster machines have special bread recipes for their ExpressBake (quick) cycles. Instead of no yeast you use Red Star Quick Rise yeast and actually ramp the amount of yeast way up for those cycles. (Like 2 tablespoons versus a more regular 2 teaspoons.) Never tried making bread that way because it requires buying a different type yeast just for those cycles.


Since the batter for quick bread doesn't require kneading and is best with minimal mixing, you may need to adjust the mixing setting. This is especially true if your bread machine doesn't have a program for quick bread. For example, some machines have a "dough" setting to mix and a separate "bake" setting. Mixing should require just 3 to 5 minutes.
If you have lost or misplaced your bread machine instructions, you should check online. Many bread machine manufacturers have placed their instruction manuals on their websites. Just do a search for your bread machine manufacturer and include the word “instructions” or “manual” (i.e. XYZ bread machine instructions). The online manufacturer instructions should tell you if your bread machine can handle quick bread (i.e. banana bread) recipes.
I have made this bread several times. The results have been great each time, and it taste just like a cake. I’ve received positive reviews about this bread from others. My only suggestion is to add the chips after the liquid ingredients, as they melted when I added them with the dry ingredients the first time I made this bread. The bread came out dark, but it was still good.

Select the Bake setting, and press Start. The Bake cycle time may vary with machines, but should be about 50 minutes. To test the bread for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center top. Remove the toothpick. If the bread is done, the toothpick will come out clean. If there is batter on the toothpick, reset the machine on Bake and continue to bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Test again with the toothpick to ensure the bread is completely baked. Remove the pan from the machine, but allow the bread to remain in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove the bread to cool completely on a wire rack.
I used this recipe in the oven and not the bread machine and it turned out great. I mixed the bananas, egg, oil together, then added the sugar and baking soda/powder (mix very well to get slightly fluffy). (I usually use more than the suggested # of bananas, by at least 1/2 extra banana) Then added all that to a larger bowl with the flour and some cinnamon. Baked for 40ish minutes at 350-375 (depending on your oven). Took it out when the toothpick came out clean. I also added blueberries to the mix. Very tasty. Light and Fluffy.

Just to add some info I found interesting. When they call for using Quick Bread setting .. that is NOT Super Rapid cycle which is for breads with shorter rising times. However, you can use the Cake cycle which is used for NON - Yeast Breads. I am about to try a recipes that calls for all the same above ingredients except it has 1/3 melted butter and 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup nuts , 1/2 cup chocolate chips., only 2 Bananas. and 1/2 tsp salt. Hope it works.
This cinnamon bread is excellent. I followed the recipe ingredients but made rolls instead of a loaf and added raisins. I LOVE the filling so I doubled the ingredients to satisfy my sweet tooth and I'm glad I did because to my liking there was barely enough to cover both rectangles. I added 1 cup Thomson raisins, soaked for 30 min. in 1/4 cup brandy with a 1/4 tsp sugar sprinkled over them (kills the bitterness) stirring a few times to coat them evenly. The dough is great to work with and not sticky at all. When I sprinkled the raisins over the sugar mix I put a sheet of wax paper to cover it and ran the rolling pin over it lightly a few times to press the mixture into the dough (makes rolling it up easier and less filling leaks out). I rolled it up from the long end and sliced it into 1" pieces and popped them into Pam-sprayed muffin tins. I always brush my rolls with soft butter and sprinkle a little brown sugar over them, about 1/8 tsp on each (to keep some yummy, gooey syrup on the tops). It only took 15 min to turn golden with syrup spread over the tops.Even though I doubled the filling very little of it leaked out. I lifted each to a rack and while still warm I drizzled the tops with basic milk/icing sugar glaze. When they cooled I drizzled a 2nd layer of glaze over the tops as it will not soak into the roll and disappear. Then I ate 4 of them! My goodness, this beautiful bread makes accidental rolls a great mistake. Thank you MN Nice for sharing.

Since the banana bread recipe on this page is done in a bread machine, it is simple & easy to make. It should take you only 10 minutes or so to prepare and then you let the bread machine do the rest of the work. For more bread machine recipes (i.e. white bread or pizza dough), please visit Bread Dad’s main Bread Machine Recipes section. Bread Dad also has a printable and “pin-able” recipe at the bottom of the page. If you like this recipe, we hope you will leave a comment below and give us a 5 star rating. Thanks!
The only thing I did was sub the butter for the oil. When I first start making recipes with my bread machine, I did a little research and everything I could get my hands on said to use oil instead of butter (save the butter for the outside when you are eating it–not the inside when you are cooking it) and the reasons for it (can’t recall the reasons listed, but they made sense and I remembered the mantra!). I do use bread flour though.
If you have at least 4 pieces of leftover cinnamon-raisin bread, why not make French toast? In a shallow bowl, beat 2 eggs with 1/2 cup milk. Heat a frying pan with a little butter. Dip each slice into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides of the bread. Place each slice in the heated pan. Cook for a couple of minutes, or until cooked and lightly toasted, and flip. Serve your French toast warm with slightly heated maple syrup.
My spam filter might have caught your first message, Becca. Sorry you didn’t enjoy the recipe. I can’t make any sense of what might have happened. When you bake chocolate chips in a banana bread in the oven, the don’t melt and make the bread brown. You can see in my photo that mine did not do that in my bread machine either. Even if they did melt, how would all that chocolate flavour disappear? Also, I’m not sure how your bananas were flavourless. We quite enjoyed the recipe, and the above commenter (April) said it worked perfectly in her machine. Sorry it didn’t work for you. 🙁
I got a bread machine for Christmas and this is ALWAYS my go-to black banana recipe!! My quick bread setting is 1hr 43min so I make it the night before and it’s ready for breakfast in the morning. My kids are always thrilled. I do reduce the sugar to 1/3c and use half whole wheat flour (no walnuts) to try for a more wholesome recipe and it’s just as good!! <3

Oh my goodness this turned out DIVINE. I had some friends over, one of who is a bit of an instagram celebrity when it comes to baking, and she was very impressed! Absolutely delicious – I think next time I will try less sugar (as I used two black bananas so sweet enough), and try add some vanilla as someone suggested above. My only slight imperfection was that their seemed to be a pooling of choc chips in the corners. Will try do a swoop with a spatula prior to the baking part next time. Thanks

Cinnamon raisin bread is a lightly sweet yeast bread scented with cinnamon and studded with plump dried fruit. It's especially delicious for breakfast spread with butter or cream cheese. By using a bread machine, it also frees you up to make other brunch dishes like an egg casserole. Leftovers are excellent toasted or turned into delicious cinnamon French toast, and this bread freezes well, too.

Be careful when removing the banana bread from the bread loaf pan. Banana breads are much softer than sandwich-type bread loaves. Therefore, they can break or “dent” more easily when you remove them from the bread loaf pan. When removing the banana bread from the bread pan, you should also be careful of the movable bread pan handle (because it can swing into the banana bread and cause damage).
