Oh-So-Fluffy Skillet Pancakes
2 cups sourdough starter
4 tablespoons butter, coconut oil or olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons sweetener (honey, maple syrup Sucanat, etc…)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla/almond extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon water
spices to add-in (optional)
fresh or frozen fruit (optional)
yogurt and maple syrup for serving (optional)
[add-ins and spices I used: I have some home-made vanilla extract, for the spice I used 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, I did not use any fruit and I used honey for serving since I was out of syrup, I was out of sea salt so I used Redmond’s Real Salt. My sourdough starter is made using hard red winter wheat berries milled in my WonderMill.]
in a medium bowl whisk together melted butter, egg, salt, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour in two cups of sourdough starter and stir in well. Set aside.
In a small cup combine 1 tablespoon water and 1 teaspoon baking soda. Set aside.
Heat your skillet (I used a cast iron griddle) medium-low. Once heated coat lightly with butter or oil of your choosing.
Mix in baking soda/water to pancake batter. Quickly stir to incorporate. Your batter will fluff up some and get slightly bubbly.
I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour the batter onto the skillet. Cook on first side until bubbly and you are able to slide your spatula around under your pancake. Gently flip and cook for a minute or so.
Enjoy your super tasty and so easy to make sourdough pancakes!!
