My Favorite Sourdough Pancakes Recipe
You will need:
- 1 cup sourdough starter
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- First, in a large bowl, combine 1 cup of sourdough starter with 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour and 1 cup of milk. Mix until well combined.
- Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest at room temperature overnight. This allows the sourdough starter to ferment the flour and milk, creating a tangy and fluffy pancake batter.
- In the morning, beat in 1 large egg, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt into the batter. Make sure to mix well to ensure the sugar and salt are evenly distributed.
- Dissolve 1 teaspoon of baking soda in 1 tablespoon of warm water. Add this to the batter and mix well. The baking soda will react with the sourdough starter, creating bubbles that will make your pancakes light and fluffy.
- Stir in 2 tablespoons of melted butter. This will give your pancakes a rich, buttery flavor.
- Finally, cook the batter on a hot, greased griddle or frying pan. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown.
Remember to avoid common mistakes such as overmixing the batter, not letting the batter rest, and cooking at the wrong temperature. Practice makes perfect, and soon you'll be making perfect sourdough pancakes every time.
