With an intense banana and a rich peanut butter flavor, this Sourdough Discard Banana Snack Cake will be your new favorite way to use up overripe bananas and excess discard.
156 grams (1 ⅓ cup) all-purpose flour
6 grams (½ teaspoon) salt
3 grams (¼ teaspoon) baking soda
56 grams (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
75 g (⅓ cup) peanut butter
250 g (1 ¼ cup) granulated sugar
100 grams (2 large) eggs
56 g (¼ cup) sourdough discard
7 g (2 teaspoons) vanilla or rum
28 grams (2 tablespoons) milk
227 grams (3 whole) overripe bananas, mashed
60 grams (2 oz) chocolate chunks
Whisk together flour, salt and baking soda and set aside.
Add bananas, sourdough discard and vanilla until well-incorporated.
Fold in half of the flour mixture with a spatula until the flour is hydrated. Add milk and the remaining flour until fully incorporated but do not overmix or your cake may turn out rubbery.
Pour batter into your prepared baking pan and bake cake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
