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!

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.
If the top center of the bread looks too moist when you take it out of the bread machine, you can try the classic baking “toothpick test”. Gently push a toothpick/chopstick/skewer into the top of the bread and see if any batter sticks to the toothpick/chopstick/skewer. Make sure to wear oven gloves because the bread pan and bread machine will still be hot. If batter is sticking to the toothpick/chopstick/skewer then it hasn’t completely cooked. Place the bread loaf pan back into the still warm bread machine for another 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, remove the bread pan and test the banana bread again with a toothpick/chopstick/skewer. FYI – Given variability in banana sizes, banana breads tend to have more moistness variability than many other recipes. Moreover, since most bread machines turn off automatically after a specified time and you can not adjust the baking temperature, they are little less flexible than ovens in dealing with baking “variances”. Thus the need to use the toothpick test if the banana bread top looks too moist (or you can skip the toothpick test and just leave the banana bread in the still warm bread machine for an extra 5 minutes if the top looks a little too moist).
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.
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.
This cinnamon bread is excellent. I followed the recipe ingredients but made rolls instead of a loaf and added raisins. I LOVE the filling so I doubled the ingredients to satisfy my sweet tooth and I'm glad I did because to my liking there was barely enough to cover both rectangles. I added 1 cup Thomson raisins, soaked for 30 min. in 1/4 cup brandy with a 1/4 tsp sugar sprinkled over them (kills the bitterness) stirring a few times to coat them evenly. The dough is great to work with and not sticky at all. When I sprinkled the raisins over the sugar mix I put a sheet of wax paper to cover it and ran the rolling pin over it lightly a few times to press the mixture into the dough (makes rolling it up easier and less filling leaks out). I rolled it up from the long end and sliced it into 1" pieces and popped them into Pam-sprayed muffin tins. I always brush my rolls with soft butter and sprinkle a little brown sugar over them, about 1/8 tsp on each (to keep some yummy, gooey syrup on the tops). It only took 15 min to turn golden with syrup spread over the tops.Even though I doubled the filling very little of it leaked out. I lifted each to a rack and while still warm I drizzled the tops with basic milk/icing sugar glaze. When they cooled I drizzled a 2nd layer of glaze over the tops as it will not soak into the roll and disappear. Then I ate 4 of them! My goodness, this beautiful bread makes accidental rolls a great mistake. Thank you MN Nice for sharing. Read More
This is a delicious and super easy way to bake banana bread. I used my Oster brand bread machine on the quick setting and it baked the bread perfectly. About halfway through the baking time I sprinkled some chocolate chips and nuts on top to make it look pretty. Next time I’m going to try using brown sugar instead. I think that would provide a bit of extra flavor and moisture to the loaf.

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 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.

All bread machines are different, so it's very important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for the model you own in order to ensure success. Also, make sure the bread machine is ready to go before you start mixing. Once the wet and dry ingredients are combined in the pan, it needs to be mixed and baked right away. Many have a setting for quick bread, or some people use their machine's rapid bread program or manual settings. At the end of the cycle, you can always use a toothpick to check the doneness of your bread and bake it a little longer if it's not thoroughly baked.
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.
