Banana Loaf Recipe

I have to admit that the first time I baked a bread, I used a bread machine! Not something to be proud of for a serious baker! BUT it was amazing at how easy it was...just a matter of assembling everything in the right order into the loaf pan and letting it bake.

Really helpful when I'm in a rush and don't fancy eating dry, cardboard-tasting, store-bought breads!

So... Here's a very easy and straightforward Banana Bread Recipe to try. It is very tasty and looks impressive considering that it is made in a bread machine.

Banana Loaf Recipe.


  •  250g wholemeal flour
  • 250 bread flour
  • 300 ml water
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon yeast
  • 30 ml oil (use either olive oil or sunflower oil)
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 4 teaspoon powdered buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice.


1.Pour the water into the bottom of the bread machine loaf pan. Follow with the lemon juice and mashed banana.

2. Very very carefully scoop the flours into loaf pan. The flour will make a mound over the water but will not sink too much.

3. Make a slight concave hole in the middle of the flour but being careful that it doesn't expose the liquid at the bottom. Place the yeast into the hole.

4. Place the sugar, salt, buttermilk, oil separately at the four corners of the loaf pan being careful to ensure it doesn't mix or touch each other.

5. Fix the loaf pan into the bread machine and adjust it to Level 6 and bake for approximately 3 and a half hours.

NOTE: This Loaf will come out rather heavy and rich due to the Banana. Variation.

If you do not have a bread machine, you can always mix all the ingredients together in a big bowl and knead it into a dough.

Cover the bowl with a muslin cloth and set aside for 2 hours to let it rise.

Then bake for 45 minutes in a moderate oven.
