Yup, we haven’t owned one in 20 years, used to make all kinds of breads.

Sure, but however you mix the ingredients, go right to the bake. Of course this doesn’t really save any time over doing it in a pan in the oven, and is probably harder to clean afterwards. Can I ask what the appeal of the bread machine is in this context?

Looking at assisted living soon @Smashley. It’s like moving into a dorm.

Oh, best wishes @Dutchess_III. What a difficult time, but I’m happy you’re making plans and thinking of the possibilities.

I think most bread machines have a quick bread setting, but I still imagine you will need to mix the ingredients by hand, unless I’m quite wrong about what they can do. The knead setting probably wouldn’t work well on a batter, and if it did manage to mix the ingredients, it would probably over mix, resulting in a tough cake.

If it’s an option for your needs or the facility, you might consider a countertop convection oven, as a more versatile tool.

Don’t worry about a bread box with banana bread ;) something airtight is actually better, but still avoid the fridge if you can.
