Sourdough Pancakes

Jump to Recipe

I just love my breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day, and these sourdough pancakes πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ have got to be my favourite at the moment.

Super fluffy, moist and soft, and there’s not a hint of sourness to it. (could be because it was drowning in maple syrup) . Did I mention it’s egg & dairy free 😱

Yep, you can still achieve soft and heavenly fluffy pancakes without milk or egg!

The natural yeast from the sourdough starter, helps the pancake rise, making them soft and fluffy.

And with the natural, fermentation goodness, of sourdough, you are giving your gut a good dose of friendly lactobacillus digestive bacteria (these are the ones you want), one pancake at a time πŸ’ͺ.

Great Way To Save Your Sourdough Starter

Freezer Friendly, So You’ll Always Have Them Handy πŸ˜‹

I hated wasting my sourdough starter. It’s so sad to see it go to waste everytime I need to fed my sourdough starter.

So I’m always on the look out, for ways to use them up, rather than seeing them go to waste.

That’s when I discovered, I can use them in my pancake batter!

Simply add a cup of starter to my pancake batter mix and I’ve got myself some golden, fluffy, moist, morsels of goodness, made from simple ingredients I already have.

Best thing is, I can freeze the pre made pancakes too! So I will always have a batch of ready made pancakes on had for those lazy Sundays.

Shhh the sourdough pancake batter is resting 🀫

You can use the pancake batter straight away, but letting it rest overnight will let the sourdough starter work its magic.

The longer you let it rest the more air it will create in your batter, resulting in a airy, light & fluffy pancake πŸ˜‹.

No Sourdough Starter, No Problems

If you don’t have a sourdough starter, you can try and get some from your local bakery that makes sourdough bread, or you can try your hands & patience at making some.

It’s very simple to make, and once you’ve got it, it won’t be just pancakes you’ll be making πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹.
