Banana Bread for Bread Machine or Oven

Banana Bread for Bread Machine or Oven — Word Document for printing


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar (increase to 2/3 if desired)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil (or butter : )
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk (or use 1 Tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice then fill the rest of the cup with milk.  Let sit for 5 minutes.)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 bananas mashed
  • Option:  I have started adding a 1/4 cup sour cream to this.  Yummy!

You can pick up a good hardly used bread machine at Goodwill for $15.  Definitely worth the investment.  Do not buy if you are trying to lose weight.  I actually had a friend give me a bread machine.

This is the one I have. Hamilton Beach 29880.

For Bread Machine (2 lb loaf)

  • Add all of your dry ingredients to the bread pan.  Since there is no yeast in this recipe, you don’t have to be so careful with the ingredients.
  • Add your wet ingredients EXCEPT BANANAS.
  • Start your bread machine using your quick bread setting.  After 20 minutes or so, it will beep and you can add your bananas.
  • This will take approx 1 hour of baking time.

It's not a loaf pan, but isn't this gorgeous?

For Oven (this will take two loaf pans)

  • Mix all of your dry ingredients into a big bowl.
  • Stir in your wet ingredients.  Make sure there are no clumps of dry mix.
  • Add bananas.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar in the bottom of your baking pan.  (It’s all about presentation to the tongue. : )
  • Pour in mix.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar on top of mix.
  • Bake at 350 for one hour or until you can insert a toothpick or butter knife and it come out dry.

And I would be remiss if I did not include the cream cheese frosting recipe.
