Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 (3-4 each)
  • 4 cups Sourdough Starter- fresh, discarded, or room temp (see notes)
  • 2 Eggs
  • ⅓ cup Sweetener (sugar, honey, etc)
  • ¼ cup Oil (we use coconut oil)
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  1. In a large bowl mix together starter, eggs, sugar, oil, and baking soda.
  2. Heat griddle to 325-350 degrees.
  3. Use a measuring cup to put batter onto griddle (we use ¼ cup).
  4. When bubbles start to form all over the top of the pancake- flip.
  5. Cook until golden brown.
You will need sourdough starter in order to make these pancakes. We try to use sourdough that was fed twice before using it, but we all know that that takes some pre-planning and sometimes mama just doesn't pre-plan. In that case, I just remove the amount of sourdough starter from the fridge (make sure to save at least ¼ cup for future use) and bring to room temperature- or at least the closest to room temperature that time allows.

Tip: If in a hurry I will heat the oven to 350 and turn it off. Then place the sourdough starter in a bowl on top of the stove- covered in plastic wrap- to help it come to room temp faster!

Depending on your starter you may have to use water or milk to make the batter less thick. We have never had to add any. If you want to thin your batter then start by using 1T of water (or milk) at a time- until you reach your desired consistency.
