I added another egg and about 1/4 cup of olive oil and it came out awesome. I read some of the comments about it being dry. Tbh i thought reading the recipe they accidentally forgot to put oil on there. In all the other recipes i have done has about a 1/4 cup of either oil or softened butter. I added it anyways before venturing down to the comment sections when i put it in the machine.

I’m glad you liked it, Alyssa, and that it turned out well for you. I’m always surprised too, when a recipe that works well for me doesn’t work well for others. I have to think that people perhaps make alterations to the recipe or don’t follow the instructions (even if they *think* they did). Either that or different brands of machines may yield different results. I’m really not sure, but I appreciate your feedback, and I’m so glad you found the recipe easy to follow. 🙂

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.

Bread machine banana bread generally involves less work & steps than an oven-baked banana bread. A bread machine will mix the ingredients for you and bake the banana bread for you in the same machine. In contrast, an oven-baked banana bread involves more work & steps (i.e. you will need to mix the ingredients, pour into a bread pan and move to an oven).
I’m a little surprised so many people had a hard time with this or it didn’t turn out right for them. I’m fairly new to making bread, but I followed the recipe exactly (minus being a tad shy on walnuts), and I didn’t have any problems. I had a little “dust” on one end and side of the loaf where some dry ingredients didn’t get all the way mixed in, but it brushed off and didn’t seem to hurt anything. I didn’t necessarily LOVE this recipe, but it was good. It may just be my bread machine too, but this had a bit more of a crust to the outsides than what I would want on a banana bread. It was my first time making quick bread in my machine too though. That being said, the inside was soft and delicious. I didn’t have any problem with chocolate chips melting and getting mixed into the bread turning it brown like one person mentioned, and the banana taste was a tad mild, but definitely there, for me. I would make this again, but hope I can find a way to soften up the outside to make it more to my liking. It was really easy to make with these instructions though.
iv tried this recipe twice and so far im loving it. infavt the second time i did it i doubled the amount yo get a bigger loaf. But i have to warn you if your bread mechine does not have a bake only function itz definitely a risk. my quick bread cycle was 2hrs 10min long.i had to add additional 20min bake time to it as the inside was still underbaked. Must must use extremely ripe bananas and iv noticed significant difference in the taste from the 2 loafs i did because of the banana. i live in a south east asia so we have so many types of banana and they all taste different. so getting the right banana does make a difference in the taste. but overall its a very very easy and tasty banana bread.! highly recommend.!
I’m SO happy with this recipe. Have tried others that didn’t cook all the way through. But this turned out fluffy and moist! My substitutions worked out great- packed brown sugar and Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free baking flour. I was nervous about not using bread flour but it turned out wonderfully on the cake setting for 1:40. Will be making again! Only thing I’ll slightly tweak next time is opening up my bread machine during mixing to scrape some of the flour off the sides to make sure it all incorporates since I had a little bit of flour on the sides of the bread. Not a big deal at all though, still very tasty! Thank you.
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.

Yes. Bread machine banana bread is a sweet quick bread. Quick breads are muffin-like “breads” made with baking soda and/or baking powder. Quick breads are not sandwich-type breads that use yeast to rise. Other sweet quick bread recipes that use a bread machine include cornbread and pumpkin bread.

I feel bad for low-rating this recipe, because I did change it...I doubled the filling as others suggested, and used 1tsp of bread machine yeast as that was the conversion for instant yeast vs. active dry yeast. I'm not sure where I went wrong, but my dough didn't rise and I basically ended up with 2 cinnamon roll logs. They didn't taste terrible, but it would've been nice if they had some more air in them.

I cannot even remotely recommend this recipe. I followed it exactly, and the bread was just tasteless. The chocolate chips melted and just made the bread brown without adding any flavor. The banana taste was almost non-existent, if I had not seen myself add the bananas, I would not have guessed any bananas were in it. I took three bites, spit out the third and threw the entire loaf in the trash. There was no flavor at all in this! What a waste of good ingredients. Save yourself the trouble, time and expense and don’t try this.
Select Sweet and Light settings on your machine and add raisins as per your manufacturer’s instructions. They can be added in with everything else. Start your bread machine. After the first kneading cycle is over, the bread should be smooth and stretchy. It should feel dry when you touch it. If necessary, add flour by the tablespoon to adjust the bread.

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.


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.

Please be aware that you MUST scrape down the sides of the bread pan when the machine beeps for add-ins. At this point in the recipe, you will add the chopped nuts, but you may also find dough that isn’t well mixed stuck to the sides and bottom of the pan. Just use a rubber spatula and clean off the unmixed dough as you would in a mixing bowl. Be sure to use rubber or silicone…you don’t want to scratch the pan of your bread machine!
Hi There: The problem I had with this receipe is that I have a Black & Decker bread machine. There is no stop button and you can not set the cook time you would like. Once you have picked the bread/ pasta or dough that you want to make that's it the machine does the rest. This receipe is probably really good but for people that have a Black & Decker machine I don't recommend it. Read More
If you are preparing a banana bread treat for a brunch with friends, nowadays it’s best if you go gluten free, just in case. There is an increasing number of people that prefer to leave out gluten from their diet, and that is to be respected. In addition to that, may people now don’t consume animal products. Sometimes it’s because they have a specific dietary restriction, other times it’s because they rather not eat animal products.
