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.
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.
The only thing I did was sub the butter for the oil. When I first start making recipes with my bread machine, I did a little research and everything I could get my hands on said to use oil instead of butter (save the butter for the outside when you are eating it–not the inside when you are cooking it) and the reasons for it (can’t recall the reasons listed, but they made sense and I remembered the mantra!). I do use bread flour though.

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!

In order to make bread machine banana bread, you need to use the Quick Bread setting. Don’t be fooled by setting names like Quick, Rapid or Express (as these settings are often used for very rapid baking and are not used for quick breads). Unfortunately, setting names can vary between bread machine manufacturers. Therefore, you must check your bread machine’s instructions/manual for the exact setting used for quick breads (i.e. banana bread) on your bread machine. However, be aware that some basic bread machines have only a very limited number of settings and may not have a quick bread setting.
Bake loaves in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped, about 30 minutes. If loaves brown too quickly, lightly cover with aluminum foil for the last 10 minutes of baking. Let bread cool for 10 minutes before removing to finish cooling on wire racks. Sprinkle tops of each loaf with 1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar.

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.

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 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!
If you have lost or misplaced your bread machine instructions, you should check online. Many bread machine manufacturers have placed their instruction manuals on their websites. Just do a search for your bread machine manufacturer and include the word “instructions” or “manual” (i.e. XYZ bread machine instructions). The online manufacturer instructions should tell you if your bread machine can handle quick bread (i.e. banana bread) recipes.
I have used this same recipe for years, except I use 3 Tablespoons of oil instead of the melted butter. I am going to try the butter once and see if I like it better. One thing for the person who thought the bread was tasteless is make sure you are using ripe bananas, the blacker the better! I have an Oster machine and it does not have a quick bread setting. What I do is use the dough setting and mix for 5 minutes using a rubber spatula to get the flour off the sides of the pan, and then press bake and bake it for about an hour and ten minutes.I then take the pan out of the machine and let the bread set for about 10 minutes before taking it out of the pan. I have made at least 100 loaves of this bread and everyone loves it!
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!

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.

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.

zojirushi home bakery virtuoso breadmaker review


Indescribably delicious! I usually make banana bread by hand, so I was a touch skeptical about using the bread machine, but it came out dense and golden and smelled wonderful while baking. I began with the recipe Dee provided, then I added an extra banana, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, a splash of vanilla, and in lieu of nuts, a heaping tbsp. of poppy seeds. I also added 4 oz. of plain applesauce (one of those individual cups). I used a Breadman Rapid Deluxe machine, which does not allow you to stop and then bake. Instead, I used the 1 pound setting and the "fruit/nut bread" option. It takes about 3 hours and 15 minutes to produce the loaf, but it mixes and stops and mixes and stops: the actual baking part is about an hour long. The banana bread had a more cakelike than breadlike texture (due to the addition of the applesauce) and was very dense, but oh so good! I love the ease and convenience of this recipe and I will use it often. A word of caution: use a rubber spatula to scrape the corners during the mixing phase to integrate all of the flour (be careful of the machine's mixing paddle), or some of the dry ingredients may get stuck in the corners of the pan. Enjoy! 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.

If you are still having trouble finding the quick bread setting, check your bread machine manual for details regarding the cake setting on your machine. Some bread machines have a cake setting that states that they can be used for quick breads (and the mixing & baking will last roughly for 1 hour 40-50 minutes). However, other bread machines have a cake setting that is not designed for quick breads. For example, my bread machine (Sunbeam) has a cake setting (that lasts for 2 hours 50 minutes) and a quick bread setting (that lasts for 1 hour 40 minutes). Therefore, this recipe would probably not work well with the cake setting on my machine. I know this can be super confusing… but always read your bread machine manual and look for the specific setting designed for “quick breads” (that use baking soda/powder).

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.

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. For additional quick bread recipes, please visit Bread Dad’s Sweet Quick Bread Recipes section.

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!
Same thing happened to my first loaf. I thought I had done something wrong. I suspect bread machines vary. Mine heats while the ingredients are mixing. I suspect that is why the chocolate chips melted. My loaf was underdone and caved in the middle. As if a hunk of mashed banana didn’t mix completely. I’m really assuming the castropy happened because of the bread machine. It did smell amazing while cooking. I wanted to throw my loaf out as well but hate wasting food. Simply; I gave it to someone else. Made it again the old fashioned way… In the oven. Better result.

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!

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.

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!

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?
