Sourdough Pancakes

Is there one of us that does not love good pancakes or waffles for breakfast.  I’m right there with you, and the top of my exclusive list of pancake recipes are the sourdough variety.  The slight tang compliments the thin and light texture, that to me is the ultimate in pancake perfection.

The recipe begins with a good sourdough starter, outlined in my previous article regarding Sourdough, It’s Easier than you Think.  Get your sourdough up and running and utilize this recipe for your first, rather easy endeavor into sourdough pancake nirvana.

Sourdough Preparation

  • 2-3 hours before breakfast (the night before is fine as well), feed your starter with equal parts water and unbleached AP flour.
  • Cover the starter with a paper towel and place in the oven with the oven light on.
  • The next morning, remove 1-2 cups of starter and set it aside for your next recipe.  Use the remaining starter for this recipe.

Pancake Recipe

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp Buttermilk
  • 2 Tsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1/3 Cup Nonfat Dry Milk
  • 3/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Cup Sourdough Starter

Combine the ingredients

  • Combine Sourdough Starter, egg, oil, and buttermilk in a large bowl and lightly blend.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, and lightly mix with a fork
  • Add the dry mix to the wet mix, then lightly blend.  There may be some lumps, that’s fine, they’ll work themselves out.
  • Set it aside until the cast iron skillet or griddle is almost medium hot.  When that’s done and ready, toss a little water on the cast iron.  If the water immediately beads up and dances around, the cast iron is ready to cook.
  • Put some butter on a paper towel and coat the cooking surface
  • Add your batter to the size pancake you want.  It will bubble up with small bubbles.  About a minute on each side.

Serve the pancakes hot, topped with your favorite pancake topping.


About Scott Lewis (5 Articles)
Lifetime big game hunter, with extensive hunting experience in the West for deer, bear, elk, and pronghorn. Introduced to the great outdoors by my grandfather, and spending the next 30 years rifle hunting. I've been fortunate to harvest a large number of big game animals, all on DIY hunts. After having moved to Virginia, I became a convert to the incredible world of bowhunting through ProStaffer Jason Herndon, a long time friend of mine. Since that moment I've been addicted. Although rifle hunting is a fantastic sport, bowhunting is now my passion. Equally enjoyable to me is cooking. I find it the greatest way to savor the effort and success of the hunt. The sport is not complete without the fare on the table. To make our enjoyment that much more fulfilling, I've spent many years honing my cooking skills and have developed recipes that are easy and satiating. The kitchen has become enormously enjoyable and nearly as relaxing as the field. As such, I will be contributing numerous articles on putting your game on the table and giving your family something to enjoy right along with you. I am retired law enforcement and US Army, who is now enjoying my psuedoretirement in the outdoors and kitchen.
