It is also time to use the starter to keep it active. A quick look into the cookbook and I found a fruit bread that was a breeze to adapt to the fruit on hand.

Three Fruit and Granola Bread
adapted from: Sourdough Cookery
makes 1 loaf
350-degree oven - see notes below regarding reheating the oven
1 c sugar
1/2 c butter
1 c sourdough starter
1 apple grated - do not peel
1 banana - mashed with a fork
1/2 c raisins OR dried cranberries - chopped fine
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 c granola OR 1/2 c chopped nuts
|Finely chopped dried fruits make it easier to slice quick bread.|
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, beat until creamy. Add starter, banana, apple, and raising. Mix well.
In a separate bowl stir salt and soda into flour, add to fruit mixture, mix until smooth.
Stir in granola or nuts. Turn into a prepared loaf pan. Let "rise" for 20 minutes, preheat oven during this time. Bake 1 hour or until done in your oven.
Cool and wrap tightly, store overnight. Slice and serve with butter or preserves.
