Jeremy's House of Pancakes

This is a great way to use your sourdough starter if you’ve tried raising one.  I think we all agreed these were the best pancakes we’d ever made.  They are very light and airy, with all the bubbles produce by the wild yeast, and the flavor was fantastic.  The tanginess of the sourdough and the maple syrup used for sweetening pair very nicely.  If you have a starter going, just let it build up for a day or so before you make these (rather than discarding excess starter), so that you have enough to make these.  Makes 14 pancakes.

You can see how bubbly and light the batter is


  • 2 cups of ripe sourdough starter (feed it the night before so that it’s ready in the morning)
  • 2 T. maple syrup
  • 2 T. oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1.2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Wisk it all together, cook them on a hot griddle, and serve hot with butter, syrup, jam, or whatever you like.  Then throw away your box of Bisquick 🙂
