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!

  1. Just made this recipe for the hurricane to eat for breakfast,when the power goes out. Smells wonderful! I made a cinnamon glaze to go on top.

  2. Made this this afternoon planning on freezing for next weekend. Smelled so good had to make it a trial run. Yum. Have lots of frozen bananas on hand. Will make another to freeze for next weekend.

  3. Do you use ‘fed’ starter?
    Dying to try this recipe.

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I feed my starter every five days, then let it sit for at least six hours before removing a cup of starter to cook with.
