A bread-like Banana Wheat Bread

Banana wheat bread

Everyone I know who has a bread machine has inherited from someone who didn’t want it anymore. I like to experiment so I was happy to receive mine. I had a very ripe banana which I thought would be perfect. The riper the banana, the better it is for baking so I hear.

I followed the recipe that came with the user manual closely but I tweaked it to suit my taste buds.

Here is my recipe:





  • 3/4 cup cold water

  • 1 egg

  • 1 sliced ripe banana

    Bruised on the outside but very sweet on the inside!
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 teaspoons dry yeast


  • Add ingredients as per the user manual


This recipe gives you a slightly sweet banana- flavoured bread as opposed to a cake-like banana bread. It was delicious. I can’t wait try out other recipes using my bread machine.
