Now that I have a sourdough starter I’m trying to find ways to use it. This morning I made sourdough pancakes for breakfast. YUM!!! They were so good. And so easy. I served them with real butter and local maple syrup and a sprinkling of crispy walnuts. What a great way to start the day. I’ll be making these again for sure. And I’ve got a few in the freezer now. I got 10 pancakes out of 1 batch. In addition to tasting good it is fun to make these pancakes…to watch them come alive as you mix the batter and add the baking soda. Very cool. I got the recipe from Naturally Knocked Up.
makes ~ 10 pancakes
2 cups sourdough starter
1 Tbsp. maple syrup (or equivalent sweetener) (I used honey because it was convenient)
1 beaten egg
3 Tbsp. coconut oil (or melted butter)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. water
The night before:
Start by feeding and setting your starter out the night before (make sure you have at least 3 cups starter). You want it at room temp in the morning.
In the morning:
Preheat pan to a medium heat. Mix the baking soda in the water and set aside. Mix starter, egg, oil, and salt until well combined. Add water mixture right before your ready to place on pan and stir gently.
Pour about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake (I did about 1/3 cup). Cook until the bottom is a nice golden brown and the bubbles have popped on top (watch for the popping and the holes staying open).
Flip, cook a bit more, top with butter and syrup (or nuts, fresh fruit, or fruit topping), and enjoy!
