About the Recipe

These whipped up real fast, but i would double the recipe if your family likes pancakes!


  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 cup discard sourdough starter

  • 1 eggs

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • butter for the pan


Step 1

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and the wet ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently mix until just combined.  Do not over mix, a few lumps are okay.

Step 2

Heat a cast iron skillet or other heavy pan over medium-low heat.  Once the pan is hot, add a tablespoon of butter and allow it to melt.  Scoop the batter into the hot pan in 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup amounts, depending on the size of pancake you would like.  When bubbles appear on the surface, flip the pancakes.  Cook them in batches. using a paper towel to wipe out the skillet in between.

Step 3

Serve immediately, with syrup and butter or whipped cream and fruit.
