Banana Bread - Quick Bread for Machines

This is a quick bread recipe using the bread machine but I usually bake this in a loaf pan in my convection oven. I was thinking I do not want to slice the bread so I baked them in small muffin tins today.

After reading through the reviews, I made some modifications to the recipe and here's my revised version. For the original recipe, pls check it out here.

Banana Bread Recipe
230 g all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
120g white sugar
3 TBSP (45 ml) vegetable oil
2 eggs
3 bananas, peeled and cut into small sizes

  1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine.
  2. Select the Dough setting, and press Start. Mix the bread for 3 to 5 minutes until the bananas are mashed and all ingredients are thoroughly combined. If necessary, use a rubber spatula to push the dough from the sides of the bread pan. When 3 to 5 minutes have passed on the clock display, press Stop. Do not continue mixing. Smooth out the top of the loaf with the rubber spatula.
  3. Select the Bake setting, and press Start. The Bake cycle time may vary with machines, but should be about 50 minutes. To test the bread for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center top. Remove the toothpick. If the bread is done, the toothpick will come out clean. If there is dough on the toothpick, reset the machine on Bake and continue to bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Test again with the toothpick to assure the bread is completely baked. Remove the pan from the machine, but allow the bread to remain in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove the bread to cool completely on a wire rack.
