Here's a bread that is especially nice at breakfast, but that doesn't stop me from eating it at any time of the day.
The recipe is below.
Banana Chips and Walnuts Bread
2 T vegetable oil
2 t salt
2 T brown sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
3/4 cup warm water
1/3 cup dried banana chips
1/4 t ground ginger
1/8 t ground nutmeg
3 cups bread flour
2 rounded t dry yeast
1/3 cup walnut pieces
Place all ingredients except walnuts in large capacity bread machine in order given. Set on dough cycle and turn on.
The first dough cycle on most machines is about 40 minutes. Watch the action to be sure a dough ball forms at least 1/3 way through the cycle. Add a little flour or water if necessary to get the correct consistency.
Add walnuts five minutes before end of cycle.
This batch required about 1 hour for the first rise. Keep in mind that the temperature in your kitchen and the mood of the yeast can change the time required for the dough to rise.
After the first rise, punch down/knead gently the dough to remove excess bubbles.
If you are using crockery or glass pans/bowls for baking, set the empty bread pans in a warm place, too. I use my second oven with the light turned on.
If preheating pans, remove from oven.
For this batch, I am using metal pans to make four loaves and had enough dough left over for a small glass pan.
Allow to bread to rise once again; this batch took about 30 mins. for the second rise, then bake at 350 degrees F for 35 mins. Turn out to racks to cool immediately.
