Light, fluffy, and SO GOOD! These Sourdough Pancakes are the best way to use pour off from your starter while getting an easy and seriously delicious breakfast on the table.


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup [sourdough starter]
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons butter melted


  • Preheat griddle to 300 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add sourdough starter, buttermilk, and eggs. Mix well.
  • Stir in melted butter.
  • Spray griddle with cooking spray or brush down with vegetable oil.
  • Spoon batter using 1/3 cup measure onto griddle and cook until bubbles form and the sides dry out, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Flip gently and cook through.


  • The batter will be pretty stiff at first but once you add the butter, it'll smoothen out and become runnier.
  • It's okay if the batter is a little lumpy.
  • These pancakes freeze really well!
  • They work as a savory or sweet pancake.
  • Add the melted butter last.
