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’ve tweaked my Banana Bread recipe with substitutions for oil (applesauce) and buttermilk (Greek Yogurt). The butter in this one gives me pause; have you ever substituted the fat content in bread machine recipes with applesauce or something else? I’d be curious how they turned out. I’m not sure my husband would be willing to let the bananas be Guinea pigs, so to speak. He buys bananas and purposely lets them go too ripe so I have to make banana bread, lol!
I tried this yesterday and it turned out great! The next time I make I will add vanilla and walnuts it was a little bland..I think I needed another banana (mine were pretty small) and I did like another reviewer and put them in a plastic bag first and squished it up first this worked well..this recipe only took about 5 minutes to throw together and was by far the easiest way to make banana bread! Thanks Dee! Read More
Delicious! Instead of spreading butter before rolling it up, I tried a method I saw online and mixed the cinnamon mixture with egg which acts as a binder. This keeps the layers from separating when it is baked. I did use too much egg and my mixture was too runny. Next time I will use 1-2 Tablespoons of egg instead of a whole one. There will definitely be a next time! Read More

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.


Homemade banana bread will last only 1 or 2 days on the counter (and it will spoil even faster in a hot & humid environment). After baking and when the banana bread is completely cooled, you can store it on the counter in a large resealable plastic bag or an airtight container. You can also place a paper towel around the bread in order to absorb any extra moisture.
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.
This is a delicious and super easy way to bake banana bread. I used my Oster brand bread machine on the quick setting and it baked the bread perfectly. About halfway through the baking time I sprinkled some chocolate chips and nuts on top to make it look pretty. Next time I’m going to try using brown sugar instead. I think that would provide a bit of extra flavor and moisture to the loaf.

All bread machines are different, so it's very important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for the model you own in order to ensure success. Also, make sure the bread machine is ready to go before you start mixing. Once the wet and dry ingredients are combined in the pan, it needs to be mixed and baked right away. Many have a setting for quick bread, or some people use their machine's rapid bread program or manual settings. At the end of the cycle, you can always use a toothpick to check the doneness of your bread and bake it a little longer if it's not thoroughly baked.

Optional – You can also turn this recipe into chocolate chip banana bread or blueberry banana bread. To make bread machine chocolate chip banana bread, you should add 3/4 of a cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips after the first mixing is finished and before the second/final mixing has started. I don’t like to use heavier regular chocolate chips because they tend to sink to the bottom of the batter (mini chips seem to spread out better). To make bread machine blueberry banana bread, you should add 3/4 of a cup of frozen blueberries after the first mixing is finished and before the second/final mixing has started. I like to use frozen blueberries because they seem to survive the bread machine mixing process better (less likely to burst) than fresh blueberries.
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.

Banana bread is a quick bread recipe, which means you don't add yeast. Instead, baking powder and baking soda are the leavening agents used to cause a faster rise than required for yeasted bread. Using the bread machine makes for an almost completely hands-off process with very little mess: almost everything gets mixed right in the pan you bake it in.

However, oven-baked banana breads are a little more forgiving as you can stir more gently if needed (and thus less crushed fruit or shattered chocolate chips). In addition, oven-baked banana breads will not have a bread machine mixing paddle “hole” in the bottom. For oven-baked banana bread recipes, please visit our Easy Banana Bread Variations section.
