Cheating with Banana Bread

Well, if you're like me and do not have a whole lot of time to sit at home and make bread, then you might want to try this recipe....banana bread for the breadmaker. I found it online ( and have been pretty pleased with the results. The first time I made it, it turned out perfectly...and the second time I tried it, it did not. You do need to remove the bread pan promptly from the bread machine when it is done, otherwise it will keep cooking, and become dry. Anyways, here's the recipe....

1/2 cup margarine
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Spray bread machine with vegetable oil spray (very important step!!!)
2. Premix ingredients in order listed above. Place mixture in bread machine pan.
3. Select the Quick Bread/Cake cycle. Press Start. Check after one minute to make sure the mixture is well blended.
4. Cook until cake cycle stops. Remove pan, and cool completely before removing bread from pan.
5. Enjoy! (Alina LOVES this stuff! It's a great quick breakfast, or snack.)
