Banana Sourdough Bread

Banana Sourdough Bread

Hello again!  Sorry for the long delay in posting, I thought I had two recipes set to go up while I was out of town but apparently something went wrong.  While I’m not exactly sure what happened I do know that I have a bunch of delicious recipes to share, as well as some updates on what all is going on in the world of Dancing Veggies.  This first recipe has become a new stand-by as it used two ingredients that need weekly attention: sourdough & bananas.  Normally the bananas just get tossed in the freezer for future use but this time I decided to try adding some smashed bananas to my standard sourdough recipe and see what would happen!

Banana Sourdough Bread

Serves: Makes 1 Medium Loaf


3 cups flour

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp sugar

1/2 cup smashed banana

3/4 cup warm water

2 tbsp butter

1 cup sourdough starter

1 3/4 tsp yeast


  1. Add ingredients to bread machine based on maker's instructions. For best results use timer setting and set for an additional two hours.
  2. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before cutting - then enjoy!

This wound up being the perfect breakfast bread, just toasted with some butter and cinnamon as well as using the few remaining pieces for French Toast.  Writing this post up I’m tempted to toss the ingredients in my bread machine in order to insure I have some of this weekend!
