Sourdough pancakes... anytime!

I'm sure I have mentioned to you how much I LOVE my sourdough starter. 
I take pictures of it. 
I take it out of my fridge to smell it. 
*I really do*
I make bread with it, obviously. 
I make cornbread, banana bread, and I make pancakes with it!
Even as much as I love sourdough everything, sourdough pancakes may be my most favorite way to use my starter. It does take a little foresight, but that's ok... It just helps us to be more organized, eh? 
Pancakes are such a great go-to meal. 
When money is a little tight, pancakes.
When you have forgotten to take out that roast for supper... pancakes
When it is a special day... pancakes.
Pancakes are the answer to a lot of questions.
Sourdough pancakes are an even better answer. 

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup sourdough starter, at room temp 
(so get it out, feed it and let it sit during the day that way you will have it at room temp when you pull some off for your pancakes for the next morning)
2 cups buttermilk, room temp
2 eggs
1/8 cup milk + 1/8 cup oil mixed together= 1/4 cup total
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine first 4 ingredients. Cover and let stand about an hour. You could do this the night before and let it stand til the next morning. 
Beat in eggs, milk and oil. 
Add flour and mix til blended.
Combine soda, sugar and salt and stir into batter. 
Let this stand at least 5 minutes.
Ladle cakes onto hot griddle and brown on each side.
Top with real butter and real maple syrup. 
This recipe will make approximately 2 dozen pancakes. 

Perfect for breakfast, supper or anytime!


  1. Hi Chas!
    Can these be THM? I'm making your starter today but was curious how to use sourdough for THM? Thanks!

    1. Hi Kimmy! I'm sure you could! I will look into it and see how we could swap it around to make it work. I've fallen off the wagon a bit and I am working to get back on it again. Thanks for the encouragement! :)
