Sourdough banana bread

Sourdough banana bread
What if … I use some sourdough starter and some freeze-dried bananas to make a banana bread loaf? 

I’ll tell you “what if” - a delicious treat! 

The Recipe

(Adapted from one I found online)

1. Preheat oven to 360F and prepare loaf pan

2. Cover & soak in water (to reconstitute)
     3 freeze-dried bananas 
3. Blend bananas well with 
     1.25 cup brown sugar
4. Blend in
     1.5 tsp vanilla
     2 eggs
5. Add 
     1/2 c sourdough starter (discard)
6. Mix together & slowly add to liquids
     2 c flour
     1.5 tsp Baking soda
     1/4 tsp Salt
7. Mix 
     1/4 c freeze-dried milk
     1/4 c water (to reconstitute the milk)
     1/2 c oil (I used olive oil)
8. Slowly blend milk/oil into batter mixture - 
9. Pour into prepared loaf pan
10. Bake for 45-60 min (or in til done)

Let cool


This banana bread was so moist and delicious .. a definite win.

I may add walnuts next time - I like having nuts in my banana bread.

I will be making a dry “recipe in a jar mix” so I can just add the liquid components. I have yet to have enough eggs to freeze-dry but the egg powder will come in so handy for so many things.

Anyway, for now: two thumbs up 👍 👍
