    “This is an old favourite of mine! I enjoy this bread sliced and buttered with a morning cup of coffee! Mmm! DE-LISH! I have not included preparation time with this recipe – (2 hours 30 minutes in the Bread Machine and about 45 minutes spent rising in a warm place)”

  • Directions

  • Blend all the ingredients together until smooth and thin enough to drizzle over the banana bread!
  • Place all the ingredients I’ve listed, with the EXCEPTION of the CHOPPED MIXED NUTS, into the Bread Machine- in the order that I have listed them inches.
  • Select ‘dough raisin’ and press start.
  • When the ‘BEEP’ sounds, add the chopped mixed nuts.
  • Allow the bread machine to continue and complete the dough making cycle.
  • When the cycle is complete, remove the dough and place in a lightly greased loaf tin, cover and allow to rise in a warm and draught free place, for about 45 minutes.
  • When the dough has doubled in size, bake in oven pre-heated to 180°C for about 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool.
  • Glaze with *Chocolate Glaze* (if desired) while bread is still warm!
  • Reviews

  • “Very, very good bread. My wife has braces, so I ground the nuts. Next time around I’ll sweeten it up some, but that’s just our taste.I had to cook it for 40 minutes at 350F.Next time I’ll use a 9×5 pan.”

  • “I baked this for a girlfriend’s birthday and have been taking requests for it ever since! They liked that the banana taste wasn’t totally overwhelming.”
