Sourdough Pancakes

This recipe make 4 to 6 very filling pancakes so it's enough for 2 people. You can save up your bits of sourdough starter or feed up a small amount with 100g each of flour and water - let it sit overnight and it will be ready in the morning for breakfast delight...Note that the consistency of your sourdough starter may be a different to mine (which is like pouring cream), so you will need to adjust the pancake batter accordingly by adding some extra liquid or flour.Ingredients:

  • 250 grams sourdough starter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons powdered milk

  • approx 1 tablespoon water (optional)
  • up to 1/4 cup plain flour (optional)


  1. Heat your pancake maker or small frypan

  4. flip when you see many bubbles on the surface
