Homemade Sourdough Pancakes

I’m always looking for new ways to use my sourdough starter.  So far, the homemade English muffins have been my favorite way to use it but these sourdough pancakes may be a close second.

Check out the recipe below and let me know if you give them a try.


For the Sponge
1 cup sourdough starter
1.5 cups warm water
2.5 cups flour

For the Batter
1 egg
2/3 cup milk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp melted butter


Night Before
1. Mix all the ingredients for the sponge in a bowl.
2.  Cover (I usually use a clean dish towel) and let stand overnight.

In the Morning
1. Mix all the batter ingredients in a bowl.
2.  Add to the sponge and stir well.
3.  Let stand for five minutes.
4. Drop by 1/4 cups onto the warmed griddle and cook as you would a regular pancake.
