This Sourdough Banana Bread recipe will make your house smell so good while it is cooking. The bread is light, easy to make and is another way to use your sourdough starter. My family loves it and it’s a great way to use up bananas, too.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted
1 cup mashed banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sourdough starter
1 large egg
1 cup chopped nuts, pecans or walnuts (optional)


Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and sugar until well mixed. Add melted butter, mashed banana, vanilla extract, sourdough starter and egg. Mix well with a spoon. Fold in nuts. Spray a 9 x 5 bread pan with cooking spray. Add dough and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes until center tests done. Makes 1 loaf. Enjoy!
