Sour Cream Banana Bread in the Bread Machine

Let’s be clear: this isn’t the banana bread you instinctively think of when you hear banana bread. That’s cake. This ain’t cake. It’s bread with banana as an ingredient.

The banana and sour cream combine to form a moist, spongy texture. Those craving light and fluffy should look elsewhere. This bread is dense. It’s not ideal for sandwiches. But, it makes for a fine breakfast, adeptly carrying jams, Nutella, and nut butters from plate to mouth.

We at G@H own a Zojirushi Home Bakery Virtuoso, but this recipe will work with any bread maker. Add the liquid ingredients to the bread pan followed by the dry ingredients. Use the machine’s basic cycle.

  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • a ripe banana
  • 3 cups of bread flour
  • ¼ cup of cornmeal
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of salt
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of vital gluten
  • 3 teaspoons of active dry yeast
