Sourdough Pancakes


A great way to use some of that Sourdough Starter that you have to “discard”!

Servings:  3     Yield:  10 pancakes  NB: Measurements in US volumes

Ingredients required:  

1 c sourdough Sourdough Starter

1 c flour

1 tsp baking soda (aka bicarbonate of soda)

1/2 tsp salt

2 TBSP melted butter (if using salted butter, omit extra salt)

1 egg

2 TBSP sugar

3/4 milk


  1.  Mix flour, baking soda and salt.
  2. Add starter,butter, milk and egg – mix well; some lumps are fine.
  3.  Let sit for a minute or two while you heat your pan.  I prefer to use a cast-iron skillet (of which I am a huge fan).  Heat lightly oiled pan.
  4. When pan is heated, drop by 1/8 c (2 TBSP) amounts.
  5. Cook until bubbles appear  and flip over; after about 45 sec they are done.
  6. Remove from pan and top with preferred topping (maple or other pancake syrup, yoghurt and fruit, for example).
