For years now, we have had “Pancake Saturday” every week. I’ve made all different kinds of pancakes, however, once I started making Sourdough Pancakes, I was hooked! They are so simple, yet, so delicious!Jump to Recipe
I have been keeping a sourdough starter for many years. I love all the ways you can use it aside from bread. I make biscuits https://therosehomestead.com/sourdough-biscuits/, Dinner Rolls https://therosehomestead.com/sourdough-dinner-rolls/, Pasta ttps://therosehomestead.com/sourdough-pasta/, and so much more!
As you can see, sourdough starter is definitely not just for bread! You can use it straight from the jar for a thin pizza crust or just fry the starter with a little salt and olive oil for a tasty side dish for your soup or pasta!
Pancakes are an obviously easy thing to make with your starter. You can make them with discard or active sourdough starter. I prefer the latter, because, it makes the pancakes a bit more fluffy in my experience.
I feed my starter once to twice per week, let it get active, then store it in the fridge. I use it straight from the fridge and it works beautifully. It’s a much easier way to keep a sourdough starter.
Making these pancakes is so easy! You just need starter, oil, salt, an egg, and some baking soda.
I take a cup of starter and put in a mixing bowl. I add 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt, and an egg. I mix it up really well.
I preheat my skillet over low to medium heat. Once it is preheated, I add 1 tsp baking soda to the mix and stir it in really well. The mixture will get very bubbly after adding the soda!
Cook 1/4 cup of the batter until brown on each side, turning only once.
Top with real maple syrup and butter! Absolutely delicious.
There are many variations you can make. I add bananas, berries, and sometimes a bit of ginger and molasses for a gingerbread like pancake!
Hope you will give these a try! See you soon!
