This is a great way to use some of your starter without waiting overnight. I made about 4 different recipes to come up with this recipe. I added and subtracted till I got the mix that I likes not to thin not to thick. Hubby is hard to please and even he likes it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. mix flour,baking soda and salt.
  2. add starter,butter.milk and the egg.
  3. Mix well - Some lumps are fine.
  4. let sit for a minute or two while heating your skillet. I use a cast iron skillet lightly oiled.
  5. when pan is hot drop by 1/8 c amounts
  6. cook until bubbles appear and then flip after about 45 seconds they are done.
  7. remove from pan and serve as you like with syrup or fruit.

This is great! Especially if you forget to proof overnight - here's a recipe that doesn't require it. We made it without substitutions and it came out perfectly. Thanks for posting!!

I am a huge fan of pancakes and these met all the requirements of deliciousness. Light and fluffy with a mild sourdough flavor (my starter is still a bit young). My 5-year-old wanted to make himself sick eating them and very well could have followed him. I made it as-is and it needs no improvements. Thanks for sharing a wonderful breakfast (and lunch and dinner) treat!

This recipe is both delicious and quick. I followed the recipe without substitutions and the pancakes came out fluffy and delicious. This recipe is great for when you have a cup of starter leftover from the bread process and your not sure what to do with it. Thanks
