We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
A banana yeast bread? I've never seen or tried one. Most banana bread recipes are quick breads and I guess you *could* bake them in a bread machine, but you wouldn't want to knead the batter, which is half the goodness of the bread machine.
Interesting - I would have never thought about doing that. Just one note of caution (from someone who turns out a mean loaf of banana bread, if I do say so myself :-) Be careful about a dump-everything-and-bake method; quick breads need a light touch to keep from overworking the flour and making it tough. On the other hand, bananas need to be mashed well or you'll wind up with chunks of bananas throughout...it won't bake evenly, and the result will be less-than-tasty.
This is my favorite, and as a bonus, you can make it in the bread machine or as an oven baked bread. Just mix as you would a regular recipe and place in a loaf pan, and bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees
