Ingredient Checklist

Directions

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

  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form 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.

Cook's Notes:

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

Substitute a sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda(R)) for the sugar if desired.

I made it with some old sourdough I was getting ready to toss out and it still came out wonderfully. The old sourdough gave it great flavor and the baking soda gave the pancakes plenty of rise. Yum Read More

I'm going middle of the road here. I had to add tons more flour than called for in the recipe but my starter was very thin. Also very sour so I had to add more sugar. The baking soda really perked up the batter but it was flat again by the time I was done. Probably because I had so much batter after adding all the extras. Read More

Great recipe! I like the texture when you add flour in the morning as opposed to letting it ferment overnight. A nice cake-ey texture. The buttermilk activates with the sourdough/ baking soda for a beautiful bubbly texture and fluffy pancakes. Read More

I used fresh very active sourdough starter, non fat milk and 1 tsp baking soda, mixing as instructed and produced a nice moderately thick, bubbly and smooth batter, as expected ... The pancakes came out light and fluffy !! My batch yielded 12 medium sized pancakes. I will make this again !! Read More

I realize that using sourdough starter is a variable that could conceivably make each batch of these different, but these didn't have the light and fluffy texture that my regular cakes--Kris's light and puffy pancakes--have, and those don't call for buttermilk. I followed the recipe for these, and the pancakes were like mochi; they rose but were dense and chewy. Maybe I should have pulled my sourdough starter out of the fridge earlier so it could fully activate. I don't know, but I will find another way to use my excess sourdough starter and my buttermilk.
