adapted from:  Sourdough Cookery
350-degree oven - do not preheat the oven - see below

Cooks Wisdom:  I will reduce the starter to one cup and increase the mashed bananas for future loaves.

1 1/2 c sourdough starter (will reduce to 1 cup for future baking adventures!)
1 c brown sugar
1 t salt
1 t soda

1/3 c oil
1 egg

1 c flour
1 c mashed bananas - we used 2 medium/large sized fruit mashed and did not measure (will use 3 bananas for future baking adventures!)

1 c chopped toasted walnuts

Stir sugar, salt. and soda into the starter.


Beat in egg and oil.

Add flour, then banana mixing well.


Fold in walnut pieces.


Turn into a loaf pan, let rest 20 minutes to "rise". Preheat oven during this time.

Bake 45-55 minutes or until done in your oven.

Check during the last 15 minutes, if the top is browning too much, cover loosely with foil.


Let cool in pan, 10 minutes, turn out to cool completely. Store overnight before serving. Makes 1 loaf.

Sandwich slices together with a bit of butter.

Quick bread is wonderful to sandwich together with a little butter for a nice pick me up in a packed lunch. Since it is just us, I usually cut the loaf in half after the overnight rest, wrap in waxed paper, then a freezer bag or packaging, one-half for now and the other half for later. 

Enjoy!

Green Bean Cobbler, AKA "the other green bean casserole"

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
This green bean casserole is very good and a perfect way to enjoy those green beans put away in the freezer from last years garden. Of course, it is just as delicious with green beans bought from the grocery store. It is also nothing like the more famous holiday green bean casserole, this one is not too salty or processed, it is fresh and delicious! 
Green beans, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and a crunchy topping, what is not to like? The author suggests that this casserole is made with either garlic or onions. And I think she is correct, both might overpower the sour cream covering the green beans. This first time I will make it with garlic and the next time will be with onions.....

Southern Green Beans

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
Green beans are in our freezer for use this winter. Having grown in our garden this summer. I have never been a big fan of green beans, until growing our own. There is something satisfying about cooking what you grow. There is a lot we have learned about growing what you will cook.....


We were successful with green beans last year and again this year. However, we did not grow the same beans this year. This year we grew tri-colored beans. They are beautiful as well as tasty. You will see that once cooked, magically the beans are all the same color.

Taco Pickles

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
When I eat Tex-Mex, I enjoy a spicy, vinegary condiment on my food. And when we have fish for dinner, I want something with a bit of a bite to it, to add some excitement. Fish can be a bit tame on that dinner plate. You could also tuck a spoonful of this crispy, spicy, sweet and puckery delight in a sandwich or anywhere else a spicy flavor is desired!

For this recipe we used carrots stored in our root cellar from last fall, I think we can call the root cellar project a success!
