Sourdough Banana Bread

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • 1½ cups, mashed banana (preferably overripe)
  • 1 cup active Sourdough Starter (50g if in dough form)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sifted plain flour (I often use half wholemeal)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup grain mix soaked for a few hours or your favourite nuts (I often soak my grains in whey)
  1. Make sure your starter is very active. Mine lives in the fridge so the night before I take it out and feed it.
  2. Mix the melted butter and sugar until the sugar starts to dissolve. Mix in the beaten egg and starter. Add the vanilla and banana and mix well.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients well together and then stir them into the mix with the soaked grains, Only mix until just coming together.
  4. Pour into a greased bread tin and leave for at least 20 minutes.
  5. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for about an hour or until cooked through. You can test the inside temperature with a thermometer and it should be around 90C when done.
  6. Remove from the oven and rest for 10 minutes before turning onto a rack.
  7. I like to slice it up and freeze each piece wrapped in foil for work lunches,
