The Only Sourdough Banana Bread Recipe You’ll Need
What You’ll Need:
- 250g all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 100g sourdough starter
- 2 medium bananas
- 225g brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 125ml olive oil
- 60ml milk
- Butter for your baking pan
What is sourdough? Sourdough bread made from natural yeast (usually from flour). Unlike commercial yeast, you use a starter to make the bread rise.
Prepare your sourdough starter. If this is your first time making this, here’s a great recipe on how to make some from scratch.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. But if you want your bread to rise a bit more, preheating the oven to 360 degrees F will do the trick.
Add a light coating of butter to your baking pan. This ensures your bread doesn’t stick to the pan when you try to take it out.
Step 4: Mix Your Dry Ingredients
Sift the flour, salt, and baking soda into a bowl. Sifting your dry ingredients helps them not clump together.
Step 5: Cream the Bananas
In a separate bowl, break up your bananas into smaller pieces. Next, add in your brown sugar and vanilla.
Use a hand or stand mixer to cream them until smooth.

Step 6: Add Eggs and Sourdough Starter
In the same bowl, crack the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated into the mixture. Then mix in your sourdough starter.
Step 7: Combine the Dry Ingredients
Combine your dry ingredients into your banana mixture. Do this in batches so you don’t have flour flying all over your kitchen.
Step 8: Add in the Oil and Milk
Add the oil and milk into the mixture until the liquids blend in. Don’t over-mix them so you don’t get a rock-hard loaf.
Step 9. Pour Your Batter
Pour in your batter into the buttered baking pan. Make sure your pan is only 3/4 full so you don’t get it everywhere and end up having to clean up your oven.
Step 10: Bake!
Place your batter in the oven and bake it for 60-65 minutes until the toothpick test comes out clean.
Step 11: Cool, then Serve
Let the bread cool first on a cooling rack before serving.
