Nice sourdough flavor and quick to mix up. The batter DID seem a little thin, so I added a scant 1/4 cup of flour. They turned out great! Will definitely make these again. Read More

It might be that have an especially potent starter, but these pancakes had way too much sourdough flavor to be good. My kids ate them, but only after they were drowned in syrup. Read More

A Keeper. Made them this morning for my Uncle and I and he just loved them. I thought from the rest of the reviews they would be thin like crepes but heaven's no and just delicious. The only flour in these is the flour in the starter. I made my first batch of starter from a Family Recipe yesterday and used it this morning. So old starter may have had a stronger sourdough flavor. I made these using my very thick gloppy starter so the 3/4 cup may have been a cup full or almost. This isn't a science either. I use a cast iron griddle that covers 2 stove burners and used my 2oz Stainless Scoop as a measure. I got 9 pancakes 4 1/2- 5" pancakes. My picky adult Son said these are good Mom. Keep this recipe. They did puff up in the centers and just like all pancakes flattened down as they cooled a bit. This recipe was very easy and quick to make and no problems and certainly these pancakes are not flat. Different starters such as the runny ones will make a difference in that case then add a bit of flour to a thicker consistency. Flavor and texture are nearly as good as any other pancake on the market.We ususally always use Krusteaz and I have to thin that alot to get the batter to spread out. This is a Keeper. Read More

My husband loved these!! He said it was the best sourdough pancake he had ever had. I thought they were pretty good. There are a few comments that they are thin but a true sourdough pancake is meant to be thin. We ate them with strawberry jam and they turned out great! Read More

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the recipe is not clear about the "starter." The reason that ratings and comments have been all over the spectrum is that the "starter" is a highly variable ingredient. People may be using starter with different water/flour ratios and and different stages of the feeding cycle. That being said, mine were DELECTABLE. My starter was 1:1 (or in bread baker's terms, 100% hydration). I took 100 g of the starter out of the fridge the evening before, at dinner time. I added 100 g water and 100 g flour. It was very thick. By the next morning (about 12 hours later), it had increased about 50% in volume. It was almost gloppy in consistency. I measured out 3/4 cup for the recipe. After combining all of the ingredients EXCEPT the water, I judged that the consistency was perfect, and it was. The pancakes rose nicely and had a great consistency. I made two plain ones so I could sample the taste, then I even added blueberries into the "wet side" 30 seconds after pouring the next batch onto the griddle. The consistency was strong enough to hold the blueberries half submerged. Just fabulous. I meant to take a picture of the remaining one, but it was no longer "remaining" when I got back to the table with the camera. Next time. Read More

I used a full cup of starter so increased the milk to 1/2 cup and the sugar to 2 Tablespoons for fear the kids would not like these too sour. Made eight beautiful, evenly cooked pancakes. I measured out the batter with a 1/3 measuring cup. The kids begged for more, and I enjoyed them as well. A bit sweeter than Krusteez, but I liked that, and the sourdough tang was definitely there, but it was not overpowering. I will make these again. Oh, and I should mention I've never had sourdough pancakes before! Thanks for the great first experience! Read More

A nice change of pace from regular pancakes. Mine were a little thin but some extra flour would easily remedy this. Read More

Stars and dots don't line up, so hopefully I'm giving this 5 stars! Easy and yummy - especially with fresh blueberries on top! Followed others suggestion of adding additional flour until batter is desired consistency. Great way to use sourdough starter! Read More

The perfect thin pancake. I did not add the water since my starter was thin already. Read More
