Ingredients


  • 1-POUND LOAF
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup mashed very ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Fleischmann's® Bread Machine Yeast
  • 1-1/2-POUND LOAF
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup mashed very ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons Fleischmann's® Bread Machine Yeast

Directions


Add ingredients to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer, adding mashed bananas with milk, and chocolate chips with flour.

Note: How this bread turns out depends on your machine. Some machines will make a smooth chocolate-colored bread. Others will leave bits of chocolate chips, and still others will give a marbled loaf.

Recommended cycle: Basic/white bread cycle; light or medium/normal color setting.

Adjusting Dough Consistency: After mixing for a few minutes, the ingredients should turn into a smooth ball around the kneading blade. If the dough appears too stiff or too soft, add more liquid or flour in 1 teaspoon increments, until the proper consistency is reached. Do not add more than 3 to 4 teaspoons liquid or flour. The machine can not compensate for wide variations and may not bake the larger amount of dough thoroughly.
