Hoping for Banana Bread recipes for the Bread Machine?

I'm craving a good banana bread and hoping I can make it in the bread machine.

Does anyone have a recipe or experience to share? Kristi

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.

I'm sorry... I didn't mean a 'yeast' bread. I realize most banana breads are made with baking soda and baking powder and then baked in the bread machine also. That is what I was wanting to try.

Most of the bread machine recipes call for mixing the blend, then skipping to the baking cycle.
It sounds so easy as one doesn't even need to mash the bananas.

I've read thru my bread machine cookbooks and also been online searching. I was hoping there were recommendations from someone here for a favorite recipe.

Thanks though, for responding... Kristi

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.

All right ~ thanks. I'll report the results when I tackle it.

Meanwhile if anyone else has any experience, I'm hoping they will report in too.

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

Annabelle ~ thanks for taking the time to post your recipe... and for making me feel that I'm not crazy for wanting to try this.

Interesting that your recipe has chocolate chips too. It sounds yummy and worth a try ~ thank you. Kristi
