Excellent! I could tell from the recipe that there would not be enough filling without the walnuts and since I planned to omit them I too doubled the cinnamon/sugar mixture. When baked and thickly sliced the texture of this bread is smooth and soft the sticky cinnamon-spicy sweetness oozes out and it creates the perfect ratio of bread to filling. The kids slathered their slices in homemade apple butter a friend gave us for Christmas but even plain this stuff is heavenly! Read More

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.

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.

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.

If you have a problem with a banana bread recipe, please make sure that you are following the recipe exactly. You will need to make sure that you are inputting the correct bread machine settings, using the exact ingredient measurements (i.e. don’t eyeball the measurements versus using a measuring cup), using the exact ingredients called for in the recipe (i.e. baking soda/powder versus yeast or all purpose flour versus bread flour), etc. Please don’t “wing” things with recipes unless you are willing to live with your experiments!

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.
