Since the banana bread recipe on this page is done in a bread machine, it is simple & easy to make. It should take you only 10 minutes or so to prepare and then you let the bread machine do the rest of the work. For more bread machine recipes (i.e. white bread or pizza dough), please visit Bread Dad’s main Bread Machine Recipes section. Bread Dad also has a printable and “pin-able” recipe at the bottom of the page. If you like this recipe, we hope you will leave a comment below and give us a 5 star rating. Thanks!
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!

Talk about your adventures in bread making! Next time I’ll know to look at my machine settings BEFORE I mix all the ingredients :)) My Oster does not have a Quick Bread setting. Taking the advice of another poster, I mixed the batter on the Basic setting for 5 minutes scraping the sides and as much of the bottom as I could. For some reason my Bake cycle would only set for one hour (I’m going to have to find a site with the instruction manual as it was lost in a move), so I Baked the bread for one hour. At this point I would recommend you test the bread for doneness with a skewer. I Baked it for another 10 minutes (using my kitchen timer since I had to set the machine for one hour) and the bottom and sides were almost too done. Also next time, I’ll remember to take the paddle out after mixing. Bread turned out delish with a cuppa, was going to share but maybe not 🙂 My chips did not melt, I wonder if the problem for the melted chips poster was with the chips themselves, and I did use bread flour.
I have been throwing all my ripened bananas in the freezer now for well over 2 years. When I need to use banana, I just go to the freezer and pull out what I need. They thaw ridiculously fast and I think the texture of a frozen banana is so much easier to work with than a ripened banana that has not been frozen. I wish I would have known about this ten years ago. I have no idea how many bananas I have tossed in the garbage.
When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, unplug the bread machine, remove the bread pan and place it on a wooden cutting board. Let the bread stay within the bread loaf container for 10 minutes before you remove it from the bread loaf container. Use oven mitts when removing the bread machine container (bread loaf pan) because it will be very hot!
