Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Footnotes

  • 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®) for the sugar if desired.

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 fo...
