"This is a bread machine recipe. Try it to make a peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich. It's amazing. It uses the machine's dough cycle but is baked in the oven."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Place water, milk, vanilla extract, brown sugar, white sugar, cardamom, coriander, vegetable oil, and salt into the pan of a bread machine in that order. Pour the flour onto the other ingredients, and sprinkle the flour with yeast. Set the bread machine to the Dough cycle; turn on the machine.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch bread pan.
  3. When the Dough cycle is completed, remove the dough from the machine, punch down if necessary, form into a loaf, and place into the prepared bread pan with the seam side down. Cover and let rise until doubled, 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the loaf is golden brown, 35 to 45 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to finish cooling on a rack.

Banana Banana Bread

With this much banana flavor, it just had to be called “banana banana.”

Alison's Gluten Free Bread

Tastes and looks just like wheat bread!

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • We've been making a lot of this since I first invented it about a year ago. We experimented a lot with multiple parameters and we found the following to be very important:
  • Use DARK brown sugar. Light brown sugar isn't as good.
  • You can use oil or butter, but there's no discernible difference and since oil is cheaper, we use oil.
  • High-gluten flour makes for a more satisfying loaf, but you can use normal flour. Or add a little extra gluten yourself.
  • Finally, for a softer loaf replace all the water with milk (for a final milk volume of 1 1/4 cup milk).

I took the submitter's advice and used all milk and used AP flour. I made this by hand with my Kitchen Aid mixer. I proofed the yeast in my mixer bowl with the warmed milk and sugars for ten minutes until it "bloomed", added the remaining wet ingredients, then all the dry. I kneaded the dough with my hook for about five minutes, then set it to rise in a covered, greased bowl on my warm oven for about an hour. Once it doubled, I formed it into a loaf and let it double again in a covered, greased loaf pan on my warm oven. Thirty minutes in a 350* oven and we were good to go. I made myself wait until the next morning and I made french toast with it. OFF THE HOOK. We used the Absolute Best Pancake Syrup over the top of it and it really sang. Super easy bread and way flavorful. Not difficult to make at all. I'd really like to try this with whole wheat flour and see how it is.....maybe even a cinnamon swirl in the middle?

YUMMY! I went ahead and just baked it in the bread machine because, well, I am lazy :D I did make a few changes, but they weren't major. I only had light brown sugar, so I used that instead of dark (though I do want to try it with the dark at some point!). I used unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil. My vanilla extract is a double-strength one, but I still used the full 1.5 teaspoons. I had fresh ground coriander from last year's garden, so that was really nice. It smelled DIVINE as it was baking! I used bread flour, and while it was kneading, it seemed a bit on the sticky side, so I threw in a little bit of whole wheat flour (probably about 1/8 cup at most). GREAT texture, very slightly chewy (in a good way), rose and baked up nicely in the machine. We had it toasted for breakfast this morning. Will definitely be making this again, and will try it with dark brown sugar!

I made this bread by hand. I omitted the white sugar and added 3 T honey. I used all milk, light brown sugar and all purpose flour. To knead the dough I had to add an additional 1/2 cup of flour because it was too sticky. Make sure you grease the bread pan very well before putting it in the oven! Husband LOVED it :) Also make sure you get some because it won't last long!
