Honey Banana Whole Wheat Bread
- 2/3 cup warm water
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. butter or vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 cup bread flour
- 1 banana, sliced
- 2 tsp. poppy seeds (optional)
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. dry yeast
Add all ingredients to bread pan in order recommended for your bread machine*. Select the Basic/White cycle and press start.
Makes 2 lb loaf.
* I almost never bake in my bread machine. I set my machine for Basic Dough and wait for the cycle to complete. After removing the dough from the machine, I shape it into a loaf or dinner rolls. For this recipe I shaped it into a loaf and placed into a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, sprayed the top with cooking spray, covered lightly with a clean towel, and allowed to sit in a warm place to rise a little over the top edge of the pan. I baked the bread in a 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes. Tent with foil toward the end of baking time if top of bread is getting too dark.

This bread was so good. I switched up the flours and added some additional seeds and it was perfect. Just like you I started with the bread maker, then ended up going into the oven :).
Great photo. Your brad looks lovely.
A banana yeast bread is new to me. It looks delicious!

You have so many wonderful recipes! This one looks like a great bread.
That sure does look good. A warm slice of that with a little butter on it would be perfect right now. I've always wanted to get a bread machine but then I figured I probably wouldn't use it enough to be worth it.
ugh if only I wasn't allergic to gluten..that looks wonderful ~I still want to be your neighbor and be able to smell all that wonderful baking that goes on over at your house…and maybe pop in every once in a while to sample ;D hehehehe ~Love Heather
You have such a wonderful talent for photo presentation! The whole wheat bread with banana and poppy seeds sounds delicious and a combination I would never have thought of. Beautiful!
