Sourdough Pancakes

Make a batch of sourdough pancakes for a tasty breakfast treat. This easy recipe is great for using up a sourdough discard from your starter.

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Difficulty: Easy
Serves: Makes 12 pancakes


200g self-raising flour
1 tbsp golden caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
200g sourdough starter (active or the excess you’d throw away)
2 eggs
260ml milk
50g butter, melted, plus extra butter for frying
sunflower oil, for cooking
maple syrup, to serve


  1. Tip all the ingredients, except the butter, oil and maple syrup, into a bowl with a large pinch of salt, and whisk well until you have a thick, smooth batter. Whisk in the melted butter.
  2. Heat a splash of oil and a small knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan until sizzling. Pour or ladle the batter into the pan, making 7-8cm pancakes, with plenty of space between them (you should fit three pancakes in at a time).
  3. The batter should sizzle a little as it hits the pan, but not aggressively – adjust the heat if you need to. Cook until bubbles start to form on the surface, then flip and cook the other side – they should take roughly 2 mins on each side. Eat straight away or keep warm in a low oven while you cook another batch. Serve with maple syrup.
