  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh sourdough starter
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda


  1. Cream together the butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  2. Mix in the sourdough starter and mashed bananas.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Add the flour mixture to banana mixture and mix just until combined. Do not over-mix.
