Mouthwatering Sourdough Discard Pancakes

You will need:

  • sourdough discard1 cup sourdough discard
  • all-purpose flour1 cup all-purpose flour
  • granulated sugar2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • baking powder1 teaspoon baking powder
  • baking soda1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • salt1/2 teaspoon salt
  • buttermilk1 cup buttermilk
  • egg1 large egg
  • unsalted butter melted2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • cooking spray butterCooking spray or additional butter for the pan


  1. Start by combining the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the sourdough discard, buttermilk, egg, and melted butter until well combined.
  3. Gradually add the wet mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; it's okay if there are a few lumps.
  4. Preheat your griddle or non-stick pan over medium heat and lightly grease with cooking spray or butter.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the griddle. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown on the other side.
  6. Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings.


For fluffier pancakes, let the batter sit for 10 minutes before cooking. This allows the baking powder to react with the other ingredients, creating small air pockets that will expand during cooking and make the pancakes light and fluffy.
