  1. I am so happy to have stumbled upon this recipe! Soft, rich, and absolutely delicious! Thank you! We have a new favorite banana bread recipe!5 stars

    Your Sourdough Banana Bread is one of my most used recipes. I keep 2 jars of your potato flake starter going in the fridge, using one for sourdough bread and one for sharing or making other of your sourdough recipes–most often it’s the Banana bread. I don’t feed my starter every five days, but try to do it at least once a week, and I feed the two in separate bowls. Last night I fed them at 8 days and they were bubbly and active this morning. I started the sourdough bread with one starter; and with the other, having no bananas, I substituted an 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple undrained and added a cup of flaked coconut. I did add a cup of chopped pecans also. It was perfect and delicious! Pineapple Coconut Bread! My husband loves it!5 stars

      So glad it’s such a hit! I love when people have success with the starter and enjoy making the recipes.

    This Sourdough Banana Bread is the best I have ever eaten. It is quick and easy to make. It has a wonderful texture and stays moist. It’s best eaten fresh and hot of course, but also delicious warmed over, or toasted and buttered. I never knew a cup of sourdough starter would add so much flavor. The recipe is perfect!5 stars

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

      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.
