Chocolate Banana Sourdough Bread

Jump to Recipe

Chocolate, Banana, Sourdough, Bread.

The essence of ISO baking, so why not combine my four favourite ISO food into one!

That’s my thought anyway 🤣🤣🤣🤤.

I came up with this epiphany while I was doing my weekly sourdough.

I was preparing my favourite chocolate sourdough cake batter with the discarded sourdough starter, and as it so happens, there was two really ripe bananas, that really needed to be used.

Being the zero waste warrior I am💪🏻, I just mashed it up and chucked it in with my batter, and OMG it was delicious 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻.

And The Result?

I was really surprised at how lovely it turned out.

I was worried it was going to be either too mushy or dense, but this chocolate banana sourdough bread is light and fluffy, with a rich chocolaty flavour and a sweet aroma of banana bread 🤤.

You just need one bowl, takes less than 30 min to put together, 45 mins to bake, and a delicious chocolate banana sourdough bread is ready to be enjoyed with your morning tea or coffee!

Recipe Notes

I used a mixer to make things easier, but not necessary. It’s pretty easy to incorporate with just a bow, spoon and some muscle 💪🏻.

 

If you don’t have grape seed oil, you can use another flavourless oil like vegetable or sunflower seed oil. Of course you can use olive oil too.

 

If the top of the bread is browning too much before cooked through. Cover with foil to stop it from burning.

 

Bread will keep for one week, or up to one month frozen.
