How To Make a Sourdough Starter
If you’re new to sourdough, some starter recipes can seem really time consuming and confusing. Keep it simple with this sourdough starter post.
These pancakes have been in our Sunday morning routine for a couple of months now and I think they are here to stay.
Where is the flour?
The main question I have gotten from this recipe is where is the flour. With a sourdough starter, you don't need additional flour in this recipe. A starter is a combination of flour and water that has fermented to act as yeast, so you won't need yeast either! In 2020 there was actually a yeast shortage because people were baking at home! With a sourdough starter, you really won't have to worry about any yeast additions.
- Glass Bowl
- Glass Measuring Cup
- Cast Iron Skillet
- 2 cups sourdough starter fed (see notes for link to sourdough starter)
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup butter melted
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Preheat the cast iron skillet over medium heat and add a little butter to the skillet.
- Mix the ingredients together and stir between each addition. Add the baking soda last and you will see the mixture begin to foam.
- Pour ½ cup batter onto the cast iron skillet and let it cook for about 3 minutes. You want to flip them only once.
- Flip, then cook for another 2-3 minutes until slightly browned and cook through.
- Repeat until you have used all of the batter.
- Serve with real maple syrup and nitrate free bacon:)
