I don't bake with mine regularly (I'm going to try to start to soon). But I have a healthy, thriving sourdough starter because of this pancake recipe. It's super simple, everyone in the family loves it, and it is far healthier than any other pancake recipe I know- talk about a winning combination!
- 2 cups sourdough starter*
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup buttermilk**
- honey, maple syrup, or other desired sweetener, to taste (I use a few teaspoons)***
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. baking soda
Serve with butter and maple syrup, or your favorite pancake toppings.
*I keep my sourdough starter just a tad thicker than pancake batter consistency. If yours is thicker or thinner, you may need to alter the ingredients in this recipe to compensate.
**Use more buttermilk if your starter is thicker than mine (see above note).
***I wouldn't use stevia or other artificial sweeteners for this recipe. The sweetener is as much for browning as it is for flavor. Since they taste just fine without the sweetener, if you'd rather not use it, skip it instead.
