Sourdough Pancakes!


Serves 4 people


  1. Prepare the Sourdough Starter:
    • Ensure your sourdough starter is at room temperature and has been recently fed or use the unfed/discard version. The sourdough starter should be bubbly.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir well to evenly distribute the dry ingredients.
  3. Add Wet Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and melted butter.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Add the sourdough starter as well. Gently fold everything together until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; it’s okay if there are a few lumps.
  5. Rest the Batter:
    • Allow the batter to rest for about 15-20 minutes. This allows the sourdough starter to react with the baking soda, resulting in fluffier pancakes.
  6. Preheat the Griddle or Pan:
    • Preheat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat. If needed, grease it with a small amount of butter or oil.
  7. Cook the Pancakes:
    • Pour 1/4 cup portions of batter onto the preheated griddle or pan. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and the edges look set.
  8. Flip and Cook:
    • Flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side, or until golden brown.
  9. Serve:
    • Remove the pancakes from the griddle and keep them warm. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  10. Enjoy:
    • Serve the sourdough pancakes warm with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh fruit, or whipped cream.
