Sourdough Banana Bread

Sourdough Banana Bread


I love me some banana bread and I love sourdough, so why not combine the two? Sourdough Banana bread is the most perfect Banana bread!


Sourdough Banana Bread



I know I make a lot of banana recipes, but you know how kids can be. They want a banana everyday, multiple times a day one week and the next they will never eat a banana again.

With all the over ripe bananas, I have to make something they’ll eat or else what a waste. This bread gives an extra layer of flavor that I’ve never had in banana bread! Give it a try!


Sourdough Banana Bread


  • Butter, for coating the pan
  • 2 cups overripe bananas (appx. 1 1/2 cups lightly smashed)
  • 1 1/4 cup light or dark brown sugar
  • 1½ tsp extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup bubbly, active 100% hydration sourdough starter
  • 1 1/3 all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 heavy whipping cream



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Lightly coat one 9×5-inch loaf pan with butter.
  3. Add the bananas, sugar, and vanilla to a bowl. Cream with a hand held mixer or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time until fully incorporated. Add the sourdough starter.
  5. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl. Working in batches, add this to the banana mixture.
  6. Add the heavy cream and oil and mix until just combined. Do not over do it.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  8. Bake for 60- 65 minutes, until rich golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cover with foil if the loaf browns too quickly.
  9. Cool in the pan for 20 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. This recipe combines two things I absolutely love. Sourdough and Banana Bread. My husband and kids will be in 7th heaven when I make this for them. In fact I have some bruised bananas ready to go!
