Sweet Walnut Bread +
Sweet Walnut Bread with Banana
1 cup water
1 1/2 Tablespoons oil
2 1/4 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons dry milk
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
Add all ingredients to bread machine as directed in your instruction booklet, of course. Do this part by the book.
At the beep, add 1/2 cup walnuts and 1 mashed banana. Daisy's tip: place sliced walnuts (or any nuts) in a small zipper bag and crush them with a meat tenderizer or rolling pin.
When bread machine's cycle is finished, remove loaf and set on cooling rack for an hour - or less, if your family is hungry. Slice, then serve.
I'm tempted to add raisins or dried cranberries to this bread. Maybe next time I don't have a ripe banana handy, that'll be the day we try a new bread!
