I’m not sure where this delicious recipe came from, but it was passed to me by the Scary Dragon, Maude’s daughter and chef-in-training.  It’s a great way to use up leftover sourdough starter.  We use ours straight out of the fridge, and it works perfectly well.  The boys love their pancakes with maple syrup, but Pete and I have ours with homemade raspberry jam and cream.

Here’s the batter recipe:

  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 1 cup plain (AP) flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1½  cup whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar and sifted baking soda.

2. Pour the sourdough starter, milk and egg into a large mixing bowl and mix well with a whisk or electric mixer until combined.

3. Gradually scatter in the dry ingredients, mixing constantly to avoid lumps.  Finally, stir in the melted butter.  Allow the batter to rest for at least half an hour before cooking.
