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 traditional banana bread. However, if you are looking for a similar traditional banana bread recipe that is baked in an oven (non-bread machine recipe), please try our Quick & Easy Banana Bread Recipe.
Before making this recipe, please read our tips section because bread machines vary. Manufacturers often use completely different setting names (in order to make the same recipe). If you do not use the correct setting, you will have trouble with bread machine recipes (i.e. your banana bread may be potentially under or overcooked). For example, there is often some confusion regarding setting names such as Quick Bread, Quick/Express/Rapid, Sweet Bread and Cake. These settings tend to be completely different (i.e. different baking times). You need to use the specific setting on your bread machine model (read your manual) that was designed for sweet quick bread recipes (i.e. banana bread that uses baking soda/powder and not yeast). See the middle section of the tips below (focused on the quick bread setting) for more information on this issue.

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.

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.

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!
This turned out delicious! Super Moist. Not overcooked; not dry; just perfect. I have a Cuisinart bread maker and didn’t have a “Quick Bread” button so I used the “Ultra Fast” setting and added 7 tbsp of water since I live in high altitude 7,100 ft (1 Tbsp/1,000 ft). The only thing that went wrong we’re the chocolate chips totally melted. Next time I will add them later in the “add cycle”. Thank you for sharing. Please share anymore favorite bread machine 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.
