We love pancakes and waffles, we tend to eat them fairly often for breakfast and for dinner (and lunch if there’s any left overs). They are quick to cook and so good. Some of this recipe has been in the family for many generations. I have added a few tweaks of my own to it and we love it. These are so light and fluffy and have such a great sweet flavor, you can eat them plain and they still taste great.
***Remember once you use your 170 sourdough starter, replace it with 85 grams water and 85 grams of a great flour.
Below we have listed all the items we used or recommend for the baking.
Sourdough Pancake and Waffles.
- 1 Lrg bowl
- Scale to weigh grams
- Firm rubber or wooden spoon
- Frying pan or skillet to cook your pancakes on
- waffle iron to cook waffles on
- 170 grams sourddough starter See our sourdough starter recipe to start your own sourdough – REMEMBER NEVER USE ALL YOUR SOURDOUGH STARTER – if you dont have enough double your batch feed it for the next few days until it can pass the float test then come back to this recipe.
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 or 1/2 tsp Baking Soda the more baking soda you use the less you taste them sourness of the starter ALSO it helps it be more light and fluffy
- 258 grams of great flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp real maple syrup
- 2 TBSP butter
- 1 & 1/2 cups milk we used vanilla almond milk but you can use whatever milk you want
The Dough – If you want these for dinner make the dough early and let it sit all day so the sourdough starter can do its thing. If you want them for the morning then make the dough the night before and let it sit all night and let the sourdough do its thing.
- First in your big bowl whisk together the 258 grams or (1 &3/4) Cups flour, and the 1/2 cup sugar. mix them together really well
- Once mixed then add the 170 grams of sourdough start, 1 & 1/2 cups vanilla almond milk (or whatever milk) and 1 (one) tsp of real maple syrup
The why for leaving the dough out all day or night to set….
- The reason you let the dough sit out all night/day is because this allows the sourdough starter time to do it's thing. It breaks down the flour and making it much easier to digest.
Dinner or Breakfast Cook Time…
- Now its time to prep to eat so now add to your pancake/waffle mix the following – your 2 eggs, your 2 Tbsp of melted butter, 1/4 salt, 1 more tsp of mayple syryp and mix it all together really well BY HAND. Truly the best way to bake it stir by hand
- Last add the baking soda 1/4 or 1/2 tsp this adds to the less taste of the sourness BUT ALSO it helps with the light fluffy ness. Stir really well until its all stir together great!
- Okay now that it's all mixed together well it's time to cook
- Get your pan, skillet, waffle iron or what ever you are using and add a little butter to it so the batter wont stick.
- Spoon in a 1/2 or 1/4 cup worth of mix and pour it on to the buttered pan.
- Bubbles will begin to appear, When the bubbles start to cover the whole top, flip the pancake and cook the other side.
- We got about 15 pancakes out of this batch.
- if your using a waffle iron follow it's direction for cooking.
