Whole Wheat Sourdough Pancakes

(This recipe comes from the GNOWFGLINS eCourse that I am taking.  Used here with permission by Wardeh.)

Oh-So-Fluffy Skillet Pancakes














2 cups sourdough starter
4 tablespoons butter, coconut oil or olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 egg
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.]


Step 1:

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.


Step 2:

In a small cup combine 1 tablespoon water and 1 teaspoon baking soda.  Set aside.

Step 3:

Heat your skillet (I used a cast iron griddle) medium-low.  Once heated coat lightly with butter or oil of your choosing.

Step 4:

Mix in baking soda/water to pancake batter.  Quickly stir to incorporate.  Your batter will fluff up some and get slightly bubbly.


Step 6:

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.

Step 7:

Enjoy your super tasty and so easy to make sourdough pancakes!!


About TheHippyGardener

I am a stay-at-home mom (and step-mom) and I love to experiment with traditional cooking and living. Even though I (and my blog) am called TheHippyGardener ~ lately I’ve been focusing more on traditional food cooking and learning all the techniques that are involved, as we haven’t had the space or resources to do a lot of gardening. I have noticed huge improvements in my family’s health since cutting out all processed foods and controlling the ingredients that go into everything we eat. Plus it’s super fun to learn the “old ways”. I’m really excited to be a part of the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge and look forward to all the new recipes my family will get to enjoy.

View my blog: TheHippyGardener I absolutely loved doing the WonderMill Grain Mill Challenge. This came at a time when we were just learning about stocking up a long-term food pantry and buying bulk wheat berries ties right in with that. I've barely made a dint in our store of wheat so far and have made so many wonderful things so far. I look forward to all the recipes I will make in the future as well. My sourdough starters have never been this active before using fresh milled flour. My sweetie swears those were the best pancakes he's ever had!! Thanks to WonderMill for allowing me to take part in this challenge!
