57 Buckwheat Sourdough Pancackes

IMG_0915My friend gave me some sourdough starter so I’ve been experimenting. My favorite recipe so far are these buckwheat sourdough pancakes. If you don’t have any starter you follow the directions for making your own sourdough starter here. So make some starter or get some starter from a friend like I did and mix these up.

3 eggs
1/2 cup oil
2 cups milk
1 cup sourdough starter
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix these ingredients well.

To this add…
1 cup all purpose flour or white spelt
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda

Heat your cast iron skillet up, add a little bit of oil and spoon in with a cookie scoop. Cook until you can see bubbles coming up from the bottom. Flip to the other side. We like ours with butter, black strap molasses and maple syrup.

These pancakes are light but hearty. If you want a more pronounced sourdough flavor then mix up the first four ingredients (eggs, oil, milk and starter) with one cup of flour and let it sit overnight. Then add the remaining flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda in the morning and fry them up.





All buttered up and ready to eat. All buttered up and ready to eat.
