Fluffy Sourdough Pancakes

Light and fluffy, sourdough discard pancakes are a great way to use your extra sourdough starter. You won't go back to the boxed pancake mix after these pancakes!

Sourdough Starter Inactive Buttermilk or Milk Eggs Vanilla Extract Melted Butter All Purpose Flour Sugar Baking Soda Baking Powder


In a medium bowl, add the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, melted butter, and sourdough starter. Mix well with a whisk. Set that aside.

In a separate bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix to combine.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Do not overmix. It's ok if there are a few lumps left in the batter.

Preheat a pan and add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan. When the butter is melted, add a scoop of the batter to the pan.

When the outside of the pancakes start to look dry and there are bubbles in the middle of the pancake, carefully flip the pancake over.

Let the other side cook for 2-3 minutes until both sides are golden brown. Repeat this process for the rest of the pancakes
