Sourdough pancakes have been a favorite dish around here for quite sometime! We had a bit of a break from them when I ruined my first starter, but I have seemed to make a holy grail of starter on my last batch and everything it seems to mix with turns to pure sourdough gold! We are stoked to have some pancakes back into our life!
These are a bit on the thinner side. We have a recipe for fluffier ones, but these are especially great for stacking, filling, stuffing, rolling or whatever it is your heart desires!
2 Tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups sourdough starter
In a large mixing bowl, beat the heck out of your eggs with a whisk. Children LOVE this job.
Now in a small bowl, mix your honey, sea salt and baking soda together. It will form a thick paste. And then scrape this mixture into your eggs and mix again.
Now add your liquid gold…I mean sourdough starter and mix well, but dont over do it!
Smother your griddle in ghee or grass fed butter (or whatever it is you do to keep your food from sticking). When the pancakes start to bubble, flip and cook until golden brown.
PS…dont forget to go back and feed your starter! If you are new to sourdough, you will add back whatever you took out…for this recipe it would be 2 cups of all purpose flour, 2 cups of water and a sprinkle of sugar. Cover and leave out in a warm spot until the top is bubbly again and has that wonderful ‘fermemnty’ smell. Then store in your fridge!
