6 pancakes


  • 1 large egg

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 cup sourdough starter

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • cooking spray


  1. Add egg, sugar, sourdough starter, flour, and buttermilk to a large bowl in the order listed. Mix thoroughly before adding baking soda; batter will be light and bubbly. Do not mix again.

  2. Heat a lightly greased griddle over medium-high heat.

  3. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the preheated griddle; cook until bubbles appear and the edges are slightly dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until pancakes sound hollow when tapped with a spatula, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.


If you don't have buttermilk, substitute 3/4 cup water and reduce baking soda to 1 teaspoon.

You can substitute a sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda) for the sugar if desired.
