  • Thanks for the recipe. The flavor is delicious and I’ll make it again. Even though it is a non-yeast recipe, I did expect the loaf to rise a bit more. It was actually a bit dense and gooey (but cooked through) towards the bottom. Any ideas? This was my first attempt at a batter bread in the bread machine, so I’m not sure what went wrong.

  • Very tasty indeed! Love the cinnamon in it. I used 1/4 cup plain yogurt instead of buttermilk and added the optional chopped nuts. My loaf also came out short (about 1 1/2 inches tall) and a little bit gooey, but holds together. I have successfully made zucchini bread in my bread machine, but this was the first banana bread I tried. Will try it again. Suggestions welcome.

  • @Kristen I had the same problem with mine. That’s the second one I’ve had come out gooey so I must be consistently screwing something up :)

  • I was excited about this recipe but disappointed with the results. The bread was flat and heavy. Should there be some baking powder in this bread? Just wondering what I did wrong. I followed the recipe exactly but am wondering if I should have added some baking powder instead of baking soda. Or maybe it was the flour that I used.
