Quick Bread or Not?

Mixes like a quick bread, but has a sourdough starter in it. What is it you ask? Well, my friends, it is sourdough banana bread. This is the second bread that I have made using my 2011 starter. It has the tell-tale sourdough crust on it with a soft, moist interior.

P.S. If you know how to classify this bread, leave a note in the comments. Thanks!


Sourdough Banana Bread

1/3 cup oil

1 large egg

1 1/2 cups mashed banana

1 cup sourdough starter(remember:feed you starter afterwords!)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cups all-purpose flour(I used 1 1/2 cups ap and 1/2 cup whole wheat)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9x5x3 loaf pan. In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk the oil and sugar. Add and mix in the egg then stir in the banana, starter and vanilla. Ad the dry mix gradually, being careful not to  . Bake in oven for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean. Remove from pan onto a rack to cool immediately after coming out of the oven.
