I didn’t take pictures of the steps involved in making this banana pecan bread, because every bread machine is a little different. Be sure to follow your manufacturer’s instructions for your bread machine. Some manufacturer’s recommend adding the wet ingredients first and some recommend adding the dry ingredients first. These instructions are based off my manufacturer’s recommendations of adding the wet ingredients first.

Please keep in mind that every bread machine is a little different, so the settings on your machine may be different from mine.

Years before bread machines were invented I was making English muffin bread. I prefer the bread to muffins, it's great for sandwiches or toast, even French toast. My machine can also be used to make jams, to go on a slice of warm bread.
