Load it up and push the button, honestly, that’s all you have to do to make moist, perfect, Easy Bread Machine Banana Nut Bread.  If I do nothing more than this alone, I’m happy.  I always have ripe bananas and this is such a great way to use them and share with all those I love.

So this story begins with my recent birthday gift, the cadillac of machines, and the newest addition to my small kitchen appliances, Zojirushi Home Bakery Vituoso Breadmaker 61jVDwV0RQL._SX522_

I had one of the best bread machines for several years and really liked it.  When some of my family members needed to make gluten-free bread, I passed it along.

Surprisingly, I really missed it a lot.  I longed for the dough cycle easily mixing and rising a batch of rolls for company dinners or sandwiches.

I tried a different brand, cheaper, yes, but I was unhappy with it because the loaf of bread it made looked like it came from outer-space!  The slices were so huge too, so I sent it back.  By the way, I love that about the items I purchase from Amazon.  If I’m not happy with my choice, I can easily return it.

With my new bread machine, my banana bread looks almost like it came out of a bread pan.  It does have two small holes in the bottom of the loaf from the paddles, but it just slices up so nicely.

Can you see the slight indentations from the pan down the sides?  They are there, but the bread is in no way compromised…and all I did was mash bananas, measure ingredients, and push a button.  I love my new machine and have been making all of my old favorite recipes, from pizza dough to whole wheat bread with great success.
