Sourdough Pancakes (Amish Friendship Bread Starter)

Total Time

These are great pancakes made with Amish Friendship Bread Starter. I am always looking for new and creative ways to use my starter!!! These pancakes smell fabulous, and are a bit sweet with yeast flavors. I thought they were great with just butter on top. I sometimes add cinnamon or Apple Pie Spice and sub out apple butter for the oil. . .just an idea!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the egg, then add in wet ingredients.
  2. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
  3. If batter seems too thick, add more milk 1 Tbsp at a time until desired consistency.
  4. Preheat griddle pan to med-high, spray with non-stick cooking spray and pour batter onto griddle using 1/4 cup of batter per pancake.
  5. Once pancake looks set around the edges and a few bubbles are coming up thru the middle of the pancake, turn it over and cook another minute or two until done.
  6. Serve hot with butter.

I just received some Amish Friendship starter from a co-worker and today was the first day I could use it. I decided to make pancakes since my bf just made banana bread last night.
I substituted buttermilk for regular milk to give it a bit more flavor (as if it needed any!), but followed the directions other than that. I would've liked them to have raised a bit more so next time I might add just a little more baking powder. We had these with maple syrup and I'm thinking they'd be even better with fruit. Thanks for a great recipe!

Great way to use up some of your starter if you don't give batter away. I liked them, you can definitely taste the sour dough but its also very sweet- fun for a change. We just cant top our normal pancakes from The Joy of Cooking cook book, otherwise if I need to use up some friendship starter I may do this again- Thanks!
