How to make Sourdough Pancakes using sourdough starter or discard. A quick and easy recipe that can be made with any type of flour- bread flour, whole wheat, einkorn, spelt or a mix.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sourdough starter (stirred down) 
  • 1/2 cup nut milk (or regular milk) 
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon oil or melted butter 
  • 12 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ——–
  • 1 cup flour (120 grams) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ——–
  • Butter or oil for skillet or griddle
  • Maple syrup for drizzling

Maple Glazed Bananas and Pecans (optional) 

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • pinch salt
  • 1 firm banana, sliced
  • 23 tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions

Whisk wet ingredients together in a medium bowl.

Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl.

Gradually add flour mixture to wet mixture, whisking until just combined. If batter feels thick (wholegrain flours are “thristier” than white flour) add a little more nut milk to desired consistancy. Let sit 15 minutes.

Heat a dry skillet over medium-low heat until very very hot. Add oil or a combo of oil and butter to the skillet. Ladle in a 1/2 cup batter (to make a 6-inch pancake). Flip when golden and small bubbles appear at the surface. Cook until middle puffs in the center, lowering heat if necessary.

Keep in a warm oven or cover with foil. Repeat with remaining 5 pancakes.

Make the maple glazed bananas and pecans:

Add butter to the same skillet. Add pecans and a pinch of salt. Saute for 3-4 minutes over medium heat until toasted. Move to one side. Add the bananas. Sear each side of the banana  2-3 minutes, or until golden.

Once the bananas are golden, pour the maple syrup over the the bananas and pecans, give a stir, turn heat off and remove pan from the burner.

Serve the pancakes and top with the Maple Glazed Bananas and Pecans.
