Make Something Monday - Banana White Bread in Bread Maker

So it's bread day at our house, I love to make bread for Cole's lunches cheaper and hopefully healthier. Lately he is on a HUGE peanut butter kick and I've been trying new ways to do peanut butter, even slicing banana's on there. While getting ready to make the bread I thought why not make a banana version of the white bread. Thank you RecipeZaar I found the perfect recipe. Now when you think of banana bread I think of gooey bread, not a good sandwich bread. This bread is perfect for sandwiches it's just like white bread and just has a hint of banana, not all pow banana in your face taste. Cole loves it and of course I had to sample, since you know the bread always comes out with a pouf on top so that of course need to be cut off can't make a sandwich with that.

So girls I share with you the making of the bread. My helper Cole rocked the measuring skills this week!

Grab all your ingrendients.
It calls for Walnuts and we're so NOT nut in bread people.
Pour in the milk
Add the mushed banana's I used two a little over the 1/2 cup ;).
Add the egg (yes he washed his hands right after)
Add the butter. Don't you love the "action" shot?
Add the flour (ran out of the bread flour but this worked) Add the sugar (yumm)
Add the salt (see the overage on my drain board) Add Cinnamon
Add the yeast
Opps a little went everywhere!
Put the pan in the breadmaker!
2 1/2 hours later, bread is ready!
See the bump you of course have to cut that off.
Late night snack for mom, oh not a good thing for the thighs.
But a good thing for a hungry belly!
