Sourdough Pancakes



I decided to get my sourdough starter, Sam, to make me some pancakes. I did some research and settled on this recipe to give it a try.


I used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 all purpose flour instead of white flour and cut the recipe in half.

I didn’t have buttermilk so I put 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a cup measure and filled it with milk. I added 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup all purpose flour, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1/2 cup of sourdough starter. I covered it with cellophane and put it on the fridge overnight.


The next morning I started by frying up a mixed grill of two different homemade sausages and homemade back bacon (Americans call it Canadian Bacon).


I mixed an egg, and oil together. That was mixed in the sponge. The baking soda and salt was mixed in. I then added some blueberries.


I fried them up in a 400 F electric fry pan. I do advise that these take longer than batter pancakes to cook. As usual with pancakes, cook them until they are covered with bubbles on one side and are firming around the edges. Then flip and cook the other side.


The Verdict

These are very good pancakes. They are much lighter than other sourdough pancakes I have eaten. With the whole wheat flour added, they have a nice grain taste. However, they aren’t as
good as our favourite pancake mix, Coyote Pancake Mix. We really like the blend of grains in that product. However, these are nice for a change and I will make them again to change things up.
