I used regular sourdough starter, along with whole wheat flour and honey. This resulted in great tasting fluffy pancakes! Read More

These pancakes are really good! They do have the sourdough taste, but not overpowering. I didn't use the herman starter, but another from this site that I had made. I think maybe next time I may try adding some vanill extract for a little more flavor, but overall a great recipe! The family loved them. Thanks for sharing! Read More

These are really good. Good way to use starter if you are not planning on making bread. I used another starter not Herman's starter. Used just 1 TBSP of oil, 1/3 cup of sweetened applesauce, omitted sugar and added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. For the flour, used 1/2 cup of oat flour and 1/2 cup of wheat flour. Very good pancakes.

A good solid pancake. There is absolutely no reason to ever purchase boxed pancake mix again. Fluffed up nicely tasted great. Read More

Holy these are good. I have been searching for the perfect pancake recipe for forever and just happened to stumble upon this one by accident. I was simply looking for a new way to use my sourdough starter other than make sourdough bread and decided to try these. The texture is wonderful and the sourdough adds a nice subtle zip. Read More

Light and fluffy with a mild sourdough flavor. I made a double recipe the night before and let it sit for about 20 minutes before cooking. Turned out great and the kids loved it. Read More

Used my Amish Friendship Bread starter for this recipe. The pancakes had a wonderfully light and fluffy consistency. The flavor was nice but next time I will try adding a teaspoon of vanilla as others recommended. Read More

A very pleasing pancake! I used Sourdough Starter II starter from this site (made last night). I look forward to trying this with a more mature starter - it could only get better!! Read More
