Banana Yeast Bread

A friend of mine was recently telling me about a banana bread that she makes in her bread machine that has yeast in it. She said that her family really likes it. I do not use a bread machine, but I was very interested because I am always looking for new ways to use up over ripe bananas.

I decided to look through my cookbooks and see if I could find a similar recipe that I could make in the oven. After I looked through a few cookbooks I found one in The Best Of Country Breads. This cookbook was published by Taste Of Home several years ago. I love this bread cookbook. Every recipe that I have tried from this book has turned out.

I have made this recipe twice now and we love it. It is really good, especially toasted for breakfast. I will be making this again. I had never thought of using bananas in a recipe like this.

    I make several varieties of Banana Bread but always as a sweet bread. Never thought of it as a yeast bread. Interesting. I linked you blog to a blog friend that was wanting some good apple recipes!!!

  2. This sounds really different and good. Do you think it’s possible to make without a stand mixer?

  3. Maggie, I think you could easily make it by hand. I have a kitchen aid that I use, but this recipe could be easily make by hand since you do not really knead it. Good question.

    Hi Lynn,
    Love your website – would you mind passing on the bread machine recipe for this as well? We have one, and LOVE it – it’s so nice to throw ingredients in, and come back later for a great side to a meal!
