Banana Wheat Bread
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 4 hours

Excellent, I did not use a bread machine, but my mixer with the dough hook. I thought it was fabulous, not too banana tasting but a nice soft bread that is very versatile.
I did not use a bread machine. I used water at a temperature of 110 to 115. I stirred the water, honey, egg, oil, vanilla, banana, and poppy seed until blended, then added the liquid to 1 cup the the bread flour and 1 cup of the wheat flour, salt and yeast, and then gradually added flour as I kneaded the bread into a soft dough. I let rise until doubled, about an hour, punched the dough down, placed in a bread pan and let rise another hour, and then baked at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. I got a beautiful loaf of bread. Will definitely make it this way again!
Made this twice; according to recipe and both times it turned out great!
If you dont have a bread machine, should the water be warmer than 70-80 degrees, and does it make any difference how you put the ingredients in, if you have a kitchen aid mixer? Haven't made it, but sounds awesome.
I do not have a bread machine. Can you make this without one? Sounds delicious
Fantastic! I haven't used my machine in a while, this was agreat reintroduction to it. I didn't have bread flour so used regular flour and white whole wheat. Light, crispy crust,big loaf. Not sweet due to the banana at all.
This recipe turns out a good, lighter loaf. I was unsure about the banana but the flavor is very subtle and would go unnoticed if one wasn't told.
