This bread comes out very moist and delicious. I have been making this bread for 30 years. I usually make it as a gift for birthdays. It is the one thing I do well and every bit begs to be eaten.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oil, any kind
  • 2 eggs
  • Topping for bread:

  • Mix 1 tsp. molasses with 1 cup sugar

Directions:

Blend dry ingredients in one bowl.

In another bowl blend sugar, oil, eggs, add mashed bananas. Then fold gently-into flour mixture.

Grease loaf pan before putting the batter in it. Sprinkle topping on and put in the oven. Crushed pecans make it good, too.

Bake at 325 degrees F for 1 hour.

Enjoy.

Servings: makes 1 loaf of bread
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cooking Time: 1 Hour

Cornmeal gives this lovely bread a wonderful flavor and texture. It's great lightly toasted and spread with butter or cream cheese.

I am looking for a banana nut bread recipe for my bread machine. Does anyone have one that doesn't use wheat flour as an ingredient?

Not sure if when you say "wheat flour" you are referring to all wheat products or all flour products. You might try swapping out the flour in the recipe for a bran of some sort - wheat, rice, etc.

I would think you may need to use less bran than flour. Happy experimenting and good luck.

Banana Bread - Quick Bread for Machines

INGREDIENTS:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 bananas, peeled and halved lengthwise

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine.
Select the Dough setting, and press Start. Mix the bread for 3 to 5 minutes until the bananas are mashed and all ingredients are thoroughly combined. If necessary, use a rubber spatula to push the dough from the sides of the bread pan. When 3 to 5 minutes have passed on the clock display, press Stop.

Ad

Do not continue mixing. Smooth out the top of the loaf with the rubber spatula.
Select the Bake setting, and press Start. The Bake cycle time may vary with machines, but should be about 50 minutes. To test the bread for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center top. Remove the toothpick. If the bread is done, the toothpick will come out clean. If there is dough on the toothpick, reset the machine on Bake and continue to bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Test again with the toothpick to assure the bread is completely baked. Remove the pan from the machine, but allow the bread to remain in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove the bread to cool completely on a wire rack.
