Sourdough and Banana Pancakes


A tasty and easy breakfast for two hearty appetites! Perfect for when you need to use up some starter and have an overripe banana. I add mini chocolate chips to mine.

8 pancakes


  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ tablespoons white sugar

  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 ripe banana

  • ½ cup sourdough starter

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup milk, or as needed

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted, divided


  1. Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together in a large bowl.

  2. Mash banana in another bowl. Stir in sourdough starter, sour cream, egg, 2 tablespoons butter, and vanilla extract. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Mix in milk gradually until batter is pourable but some lumps remain.

  3. Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Grease lightly with melted butter. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake, keeping them 2 inches apart. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 1/2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining butter and batter.
