Sourdough pancake I

My friend CH gave me some sourdough starter the other day and I tried making sourdough bread.  Unfortunately I failed miserably.   

So yesterday, she decided to gave us demo on making baguette and sourdough bread.

It was a long day but really rewarding.  I had so much fun that I couldn't sleep.  Will blog on my new learning journey later on.

As for now, I took home some starter and combine with what I had previously, I turned them into Sourdough pancake.  This recipe does not use additional flour so it is really interesting.

Findings: The pancake is soft and fluffy but I find the baking soda a tad to strong to my liking.  As usual, son said just to load it up with maple syrup which is his favourite.  

Not sure if I reduced the baking soda, will it still gives me the same texture.  Will experiment it later on.

What you need:

454g fresh sourdough starter
1 egg
40g castor sugar 
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp milk

Melted butter for frying


Beat egg, sugar, oil and baking soda together.

Add in sourdough starter and mix until combined.

Add in milk to thin out to pancake batter consistency.  Add a little more if too thick.

Heat pan over medium heat, brush a layer of melted butter.

Pour batter and cook until golden brown. Flip and cook the other side.

Serve with jam or maple syrup.



  1. So cool to receive the natural leavening from a friend. Its a very special gift indeed. And you're enjoying it so much. haha...

    1. Yes, such gift cannot be measured by dollars and cents. Truly bless.


Thanks for dropping by. Give me a tinkle if you have some fun on this recipe too. Will be nice to leave a name if you are in the Anonymous category, otherwise it will be group under spam. Have fun.
