Sourdough Starter & Apple Cinnamon Coconut Loaf Recipe
This recipe alone is completely worth getting a starter going–we love ours! All you need to know is in our The Ultimate Sourdough Starter Guide!
If you’re like me… I used to only be familiar with sourdough bread loaves which are very good but have a strong, sharp flavor to it. These recipes using sourdough start that I have been sharing with you are much milder.
The sourdough starter just adds a little bit of ‘tang’ to it and let me tell you it’s a tang you want to experience! It’s a whole new flavor accent that we completely adore!
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup fresh sourdough start or sour cream
- 2 overripe bananas, mashed (approx 1 cup)
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup red apples, peeled and small diced
- 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
- 1/3 cup coconut flakes
- Preheat oven 350 degrees F.
- Coat 9x5 pan with cooking spray; set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl cream coconut oil.
- Add sugars and cream 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy.
- Add egg; mix 2 minutes.
- Add vanilla, sourdough start, and mashed banana; mix to incorporate.
- In a separate bowl combine flour, sea salt, cinnamon, and baking soda; use a whisk to combine.
- Add flour mixture all at once to wet ingredients; mix until 80% incorporated.
- Add sweetened coconut flakes and diced apples; gently mix with spatula to combine.
- Do not over mix- a few lumps are okay.
- Evenly spread batter into prepared pan.
- Sprinkle top of dough with coconut flakes.
- Bake 45-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center removes clean.
- If at 45 minutes the top of the loaf looks very browned, set a piece of foil over the top to protect over browning. ( I needed to do this)
- Cool on rack for 10 minutes, turn out and complete cooling.
- Slice and serve.
