Sourdough Banana Bread

Can’t help but love banana bread. AND it’s better because I can use my sourdough starter!

1/3 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup mashed banana
1 cup sourdough starter
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp vanilla or 1 tsp grated orange rind

Cream together the shortening and sugar, add egg, and mix until blended. Stir in bananas and sourdough starter. Add orange rind or vanilla. Add dry ingredients, stirring until just blended. Pour into greased 9×5″ loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 1 hour.

This came from Don and Myrtle Holm’s Sourdough Cookbook in 1972 via
