Banana Bread Recipe for the Bread Machine — 44 Comments

  1. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I have finally found a banana bread recipe that comes out fully baked! It is so moist and delicious! YEAH!

    • I’m so glad you like the recipe.

      I’ve been experimenting with different recipes for years. I had the same problem you did, the banana bread was never baked all the way through. And with eggs in the recipe, that’s so important.

  2. I made the banana bread yesterday and it was really good . I made it on the cake setting which I had never used before. I just got a cuisinart bread machine. It only took 1 1/2 hours to make, but it lasted less than an hour. We ate it all. Now I have to make more. I’m going to try the banana jam today. Thanks for the recipes

    • I also made it on a Cuisinart bread machine, and it was fantastic! My husband, daughter, and I ate most of it in one sitting. I will definitely make this again. Thank you for providing the recipe and the clear instructions.

  3. I have made this recipe 3 times. The taste is great. I have found for my bread machine the ingredients mix better if I add the dry ingredients last. I also add about 1/3 cup of chunky peanut butter and it turns out great.

  4. Just got the same zojirushi. I made the banana bread recipe as per their website which had a recipe for a 2lb loaf on a older model. It was good. Did you ever try that one? I’m unimpressed with the recipe book the zojirushi came with. I’d love to know your take on it and what recipes you change and why. Thanks

    • I don’t know how many recipes I tried for banana bread before this one. Many of them were good, but the problem that I had was that the bread wasn’t fully cooked. Since the recipes all called for eggs, this was a safety concern. I’ve made this recipe a number of times and it’s always been fully cooked.

    • I’m sorry, but using yeast in this recipe is not advised. However, you can use dry milk instead of regular milk. You’ll need to research to find the correct amounts of milk powder and water to replace the milk.

  5. Just put it all in the bread machine. Loving that it is the first recipe without nuts. My husband can’t chew them and other recipes don’t say they are optional so wasn’t sure I could use those. Will be updating on how it turns out. Lol my bananas must have been huge I had to actually leave some out cause I had sooo much more than 3/4 cup lol.

  6. Bread is out. Should have watched to make sure all mixed but overall still moist and good. A lot smaller than regular oven baked but hey easy to make.

  7. 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.

  8. Wow! Just tried this and my picky husband and I both love it! It tasted super moist and delicious! I used the cake setting on my unbranded bread machine and it only took 1.5 hours! Super easy but great taste! Now I can make it anytime I like! Many many thanks for your wonderful work!

  9. Since there is no yeast to “feed” in this recipe, can the sugar be replaced with a sugar substitute (i.e. Splenda)? I absolutely love banana bread, but my diabetes (and my waistline) does not allow that much sugar!

  10. I would like to try this out. May I know butter that you used is salted or unsalted? Also, for milk, is full cream, low fat or fresh milk?

  11. Excellent recipe ! Turned out perfect the first time. Just baked the Pound cake (it’s cooling now ) and it too came out beautiful. I also use and recommend the Zojirushi Bread Machine. Thanks for the great recipes. You definitely made the “Nice List” Ho Ho Ho.

  12. Just made this, AMAZING!!!!!! For some reason ate the sound of the beep I got the urge to toss in a bunch of mini chocolate chips. I think I will eat it all.
