Banana Yeast Bread


1 1/4 tsp instant yeast
50ml warm water
2/3 cup (155g) mashed ripe bananas
60g sugar
50ml warm milk
50g butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1.  In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the bananas, sugar, milk, butter, salt, eggs and  about 2/3 of the flour.  Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes.
2.  Stir in the remaining flour to form a stiff batter. Do not knead.
3. Spoon into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size,
about 2-3 hours.
4. Bake at 190 C  for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped.


If it got a little too done (brown) on the top,  just lay a piece of foil across the top of the loaf for the last 10 or so minutes. This will help keep it from getting too brown. Remove from pan to wire racks to cool.
