How to Make Bread Machine Banana Bread

  • When the banana bread is done, carefully remove the pan from the bread machine and place it on a wire rack to cool for approximately 10 minutes before removing the bread from the pan and allowing it to cool on the wire rack completely.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • You can add the pecans and bananas at any time during the mixing process, you just need to add them prior to the bread baking. If you add them in later you will need to stir the batter a few times manually. 
  • Swap out the pecans for walnuts or omit them completely. 
  • Be sure you use really ripe bananas. This is the secret to flavorful banana bread.
  • Feel free to add other favorites like craisins or chocolate chips. 
  • Let your bread cool prior to trying to remove it from the pan so it doesn’t fall apart. Once you remove it, let it cool completely before cutting to prevent it from crumbling.
