I used ripe bananas and slightly less banana than called for. I notice now that the recipe calls for mashed banana--presumably not ripe. The dough was runny. It rose over the top of the pan and oozed down the sides. I had to scrape it out to control the burning. In 13 years of using bread machines this is the first time I have seen this. The bread tasted good and had a nice crust to it where it touched the pan. I used 2/3 cup of pecans instead of macadamia nuts. The pecans gave the bread a slightly characteristically bitter flavor.

This came out great! I added 1/2 cup of sweetened coconut flakes and it was perfect. It was moist with a subtle banana flavor and just sweet enough. Next time I'll reduce the flour to 3 cups due to the bread rising too high. Read More

This bread wasn't what I expected it to be. I was looking for a traditional banana bread. It was more like a regular loaf of bread. I guess it was the yeast. I should have known that. However it tasted very good. It was moist and had a nice banana flavor. Just not what I was looking for. Read More

It was OK and nice light texture but definitely won't do again. I was looking forward to using my macadamia nuts given to me by Australian visitors but think this was a waste of them. Could not taste banana at all and not suitable for sandwiches etc. Thanks for the suggestion though - willing to try most things! Read More

I thought this was really good even though I kinda messed it up a bit. I used 2 very ripe bananas which when mashed measured out to be almost 1 cup. I cut back a bit on the water due to that. And I veganized it by subbing grapeseed oil for the butter and flaxseed/water for the egg (I didn't have any eggs so I figured what the heck). I also used an unprocessed cane sugar rather than white sugar and added 2 or 3 tablespoons of grapeseed flour for some of the bread flour. And I added a bit of vanilla paste to round our the flavor. I did have to add about 4 cups or so of flour. It smelled great when baking and the finished product tastes great. Toasted with PB for breakfast...yummy!! Oh and I did this by hand rathr than a bread machine...just threw everything into my KA stand mixer. Read More

I'm pretty sure the yeast quantity is wrong. My bread overflowed the breadmaker. I suggest using only 1tsp and maybe even less than that. Use the instructions that came with your machine as a guide. I had to rescue the partially baked dough and dump it onto a cookie sheet to finish baking it in a conventional oven. So it came out as a kind of large ugly lump. It tasted pretty good though! It was a little underdone so I recommend careful probing with a cake tester. Some other reviewers noted the lack of banana flavor - my bread had an attractive and subtle banana undertone. I liked it but I guess everyone's taste is different. Read More
