How to make fluffy pancakes
Sourdough pancakes are classic pancakes made with sourdough starter discard. I should admit they are the fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever had. They taste a bit yeasty and are super light. You can easily eat a whole batch by yourself! For this pancake recipe you will need:
- All-purpose flour
- Sugar: You can use white sugar or any sweetener.
- Baking soda and powder
- Sourdough discard: You will need about 1 cup of sourdough discard.
- Large eggs
- Oil: Both vegetable oil like Canola, coconut oil or butter will work well for this recipe.
It is a perfect way to use sourdough discard instead of throwing away. The best part, these pancakes will be on your table in less than 30 minutes. No need to allow the batter rest overnight because the recipe uses 1 cup of sourdough discard. It is more than enough to make the fluffiest pancakes ever!
how to cook perfect pancakes
- Preheat your griddle or non-stick pan over low-medium heat. Grease the pan with butter.
- While your pan/griddle is heating, mix all the dry ingredients.
- Then mix all the wet ingredients in the measuring cup you use to measure the milk.
- Add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix. The batter will be lumpy and it is okay.
- Drop ⅓ cup of batter on the hot griddle/pan. Allow pancakes to cook properly. When you see bubbles on the surface, flip and cook until golden. Make sure to cook pancakes over low medium heat. Use a spatula for flipping the pancakes.
What is sourdough discard?
Sourdough discard is the part of the sourdough starter that is discarded before feeding. I usually collect sourdough starter discard in a jar and use every time I need it. You can keep it in the fridge for up to one week or freeze it for 6-7 months. For this recipe it can be at room temperature or you can take it directly from the fridge.
