Description

There are lots of good recipes for banana bread and they all taste pretty good. Why then Sourdough Banana Bread? Because it is indeed superb. What is it about sourdough that makes it taste so good? I am truly not sure, but what it does for bread is almost magical.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Fresh Sourdough Starter
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅓ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 cup Mashed Banana
  • ⅓ cups Chocolate Chips

Preparation

In a large bowl, mix together the sourdough starter, sugar, baking soda and salt. This creates a lovely foamy mixture. Add vegetable oil and egg. Mix well. Add flour and mashed banana. Mix well. Pour batter into one greased standard sized loaf pan or two greased mini loaf pans. Allow to rest in a warm place for 20 minutes. At the end of the rest period, preheat oven to 350 F.

Sprinkle the top with chocolate chips. Bake in a 350 F oven for 55-60 minutes for large loaf or 30-35 minutes for smaller loaves or a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from oven. Allow to cool slightly and remove from pan. Slice and enjoy!

This recipe, along with many of my sourdough recipes, was adapted from Rita Davenport’s Sourdough Cookery book which was published in 1977. I love this book and it has taught me well. Most of the recipes are very good and some are outstanding. Sourdough Banana Bread qualifies as outstanding.

Oh my, you are correct, this is outstanding! I love using my sourdough. Got it from my mother-in-law, she has had it going since 1972. My husband can’t imagine life without it! He loved the banana bread. I will definitely be passing this recipe to her.
