Oh So Glorious Banana Bread

This is my very, very simple bread machine banana bread recipe. There are a lot of those recipes out there and a lot of them ask you to take stuff out of the bread machine for some reason or do things in stages, add some of the ingredients later etc. I think the machine can do all of that work without my help so I’m being cheeky and all of the ingredients go in at the same time. The machine never complained so far.

This is called bread but really it’s not the kind of stuff you can have for breakfast with a slice of ham on it. This is more of a cake, really. It’s to die for when paired with a hot cocoa or a coffee.


banana breadWhat you need is:



3 Tbsp of oil
2 eggs
2 1/4 cup plain flour
2 bananas broken into pieces
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
a handful of dried cranberries
1 tsp of ground cinnamon



Place the ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order listed above, set the machine on ‘dough’ cycle and let it mix the ingredients until the bananas are mashed and other ingredients well combined (app. 15minutes).



Set the machine to ‘bake’ cycle and leave to bake for 60 minutes. After that time check with a cocktail stick if the bread is ready. If the stick doesn’t come out dry, reset the machine to bake and give it another 10 – 15 minutes.


With this recipe it’s a good idea to remember that as eggs are perishables you shouldn’t leave the machine on a 12 hour timer and such. Just let it do its job immediately.

It’s going to be hard to stop eating.
