Sourdough Pancakes

When I first started keeping sourdough starter I wasn’t sure I wanted to make bread all the time or if I’d like it that much (spoiler alert: I love it!  Here’s some more info about my starter).  But one of the first things I made were these sourdough pancakes and they sealed the deal; convincing me to keep a starter even if I used it for nothing but pancakes!  That’s how good these are!

It’s funny, I read the recipe in a comment on a blog and I can’t even remember where.  I’ve looked through so many sourdough pancake recipes and can’t find one that matches what I use.  So I can’t give credit to whoever shared this with me.  One thing I really like is it’s simplicity.  It doesn’t require a lot of ingredients (I have it memorized by now) and is simple to throw together even if you’re not a morning person.  Also I’m pretty flexible with how much starter I use, and they always turn out great.

The recipe I saw made a lot of pancakes, so I wrote down the halved recipe and it’s a really great size.  I make it for myself (and have leftovers) but I think it’d be good for 2 people too.

Sourdough Pancakes

1 Cup of fed starter

1/2 t salt

1/2 t soda

1 egg

2 T sugar or honey

2 T melted butter or coconut oil

I cook mine in my cast iron skillet.  I melt the butter in the skillet while I mix up the other ingredients, and I add the soda last, which helps the fluff factor!  The pancakes aren’t very tangy or sour, but have a thinner, chewier texture than say, bisquick pancakes.  Enjoy!
