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.

Banana bread may be served at tea time or at breakfast, although there is no rule as to when you may eat it. This banana bread recipe turns out really well in a bread maker and it's a great way to to get rid of overripe bananas sitting in the bowl. In our family nobody touches bananas if the skin has any sign of black. I guess we all worry that they are spoiled. So, rather than wasting them, into the bread maker they go.

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.

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. 🙂

This bread machine banana bread recipe helps you to easily create a delicious banana bread... just like Grandma's! Also since you are using a bread machine, you will be doing a ton less work than Grandma did when she made her banana bread. This recipe is for a 2lb loaf.

Ok, this bread turned out so yummy…. however, my machine doesn’t work like most I guess. It’s a very basic West Bend one and has very few options. So I followed the recipe (except I didn’t have the walnuts so it got double chocolate chips!) and it ran through the rapid cycle which took 3 hrs on my machine. But it was still dough inside. So I baked it for another 25 mins at 400. I’ve decided that I’m still going to use this recipe for baking the bread though. It was so good.

Thank you for the recipe! I made the bread using bread flour in my cuisinart cbk-110. I followed the recipe as is except omitted walnuts. I also used ripe bananas. I feel that I could have used another banana or banana flavored syrup to give it more flavoring. Also, definitely going to double up on the chocolate chips. On the machine, instead of rapid cycle, I used “cake” program which goes just at 1hr 52 mins. I had to add another 30 mins. Cooled it on wire rack for 2 hours and it was still pretty warm on the inside. Made few slices of half of the loaf and 3 hours later, sliced the rest of the loaf. It wasn’t dry at all. If I double up on chocolate chips and add extra banana, do I need to make any changes to the recipe?
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

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 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
Also be aware that some people go beyond just scraping the sides of the bread pan in order to avoid any leftover flour sticking to the sides of their finished banana bread. They will first mix all of the ingredients by hand in a mixing bowl and then add it to the bread machine bread pan (versus adding all of the ingredients to the bread pan and letting the bread machine mix everything). While this is an extra step, premixing the ingredients greatly reduces the potential for any unwanted small flour “clumps” and/or flour sticking to the sides of the finished banana bread. After hand mixing the ingredients, you should just follow the rest of the recipe instructions (i.e. enter proper bread machine settings and so on). However, always remember to add the ingredients (or hand mixed batter) to the bread pan when the bread pan is out of the bread machine and the bread machine is unplugged.

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

I know I have a winning recipe on my hands when my husband and 3 year old start snacking on it as soon as its cool enough to handle and immediatly ask me to make it again soon. This bread turned out so well, just like a cinnamon roll in loaf form. I don't have a bread machine so I did have to adjust the directions for use in my stand mixer. I combined the white sugar and warm milk in my mixer bowl and added the yeast to proof. Once proofed I mixed in the eggs and softened butter until the butter was broken up into chunks and the eggs were mixed in. I then added the flour/salt that had already been mixed to combine. I let the dough hook do all the kneading and when finished I lightly oiled the bowl and the top of the dough, covered with plastic wrap and let it rise until doubled. From that point on I followed the recipe except for doubling the sugar/cinnamon part of the filling. I made one loaf with walnuts and one without since my husband isn't crazy about them. We can't wait to try this bread toasted tomorrow morning. The only change I'll make next time is to brush the dough with an egg wash before baking so it comes out nice and glossy. Highly recommend!

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!

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).

This works equally well baked. I wanted to try making it in the bread machine but my machine was not working on sweet bread so I took it back out and mixed it in a bowl, put it in a loaf pan and baked it in my toaster oven.I threw another batch together and added chocolate chips and put that in my convection oven. 350 in the toaster oven and 325 in the convection oven. approx 45 min. to an hour and it as done.

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!

Please mash the ripe bananas with a fork before adding them to the bread pan. Ripe bananas are soft and are very easy to mash. Most bread machine paddles/mixers will not mash large banana chunks properly (just stirs them around) and the banana bread will not come out correctly if you have not mashed the bananas. Thanks Tom for pointing out the problem with large chunks!
