  • Author: Regan at This Baking Life
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 overripe bananas (should have lots of black spots), peeled and mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (about 240 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons¬†baking powder
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Place all ingredients in pan of bread machine in the order of the ingredients as listed above.

  2. Select Dough setting; press Start. Mix dough until well combined, 3 to 5 minutes, occasionally using a rubber spatula to push dough from the sides of the bread pan, as needed. Press Stop, and smooth out top of the batter with the back of a spoon or offset spatula, as needed. (If there is batter up the sides of bread machine, I recommend using a wet rubber spatula to push that down before beginning the baking process.)

  3. Select Bake setting; press Start. Bake in bread machine until a wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

  4. Use oven mitts to carefully remove pan from bread machine, and let bread cool in pan 5-10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack, and let cool 30 to 45 minutes. (Be sure to check for dough mixing blade or mixing paddle in bottom of loaf and remove carefully.) Serve warm. Store in a plastic bag or airtight container.
