“This is not your regular banana quick bread. It is a real, chewy, loaf of traditional bread, complete with that wonderful bready texture! This is the first type of banana bread I ever ate actually, and it makes a fantastic stuffed peanut butter banana french toast! Found on the internet while I was pining for some real bready banana bread. Hope you enjoy it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mash the bananas in a medium bowl. Stir in the buttermilk. Heat the mixture to 100 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the granulated sugar, whole wheat flour, four cups of bread flour, salt and cinnamon in another bowl.
  3. Transfer the banana concoction to the bowl of your stand-type mixer. Add the yeast and stir. Add the flour mixture. With the dough hook, mix the ingredients together. Continue kneading, adding more flour as needed until the you have a soft, barely sticky bread dough. Continue kneading for five minutes or until the gluten is well formed. Remove the dough to a greased large bowl and cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled.
  4. Deflate the dough and form two loaves. Grease and flour two 9 x 5-inch bread pans. Place the dough in the pans and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 25 minutes or until done. The bread will have a brown tone and the interior of the loaf will be at 190 degrees or higher.
