Overnight sourdough pancakes


Light and fluffy pancakes made with sourdough starter are a perfect weekend breakfast. Get these started the night before and then just add a few ingredients to cook them the next morning.

My sourdough starter is doing so well and I've been practicing and perfecting my sourdough bread baking skills. I've been using my excess and unfed starter to make a lot of other recipes like these delicious pancakes as well as pizza crust, biscuits, and this banana bread. I'm excited because I really love to bake homemade bread and I enjoy the tang that sourdough gives to other foods as well.

These pancakes are terrific because you can start up the mix on Friday or Saturday night before bed and then add in a couple more ingredients in the morning before cooking them. The slight sourdough flavor makes them a perfect compliment to sweet maple syrup and we always love some fresh berries on our pancakes. These pancakes cook up so nicely too with a light texture and slightly crisp outsides.

If you have sourdough starter give these pancakes a try soon! Maple syrup season is starting here soon in our region, so pancakes will be on the menu even more than usual.

Light and fluffy pancakes made with sourdough starter are a perfect weekend breakfast. Get these started the night before and then just add a few ingredients to cook them the next morning.

ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled (plus more for cooking)

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

instructions:

How to cook Overnight Sourdough Pancakes

  1. Before you go to bed, mix together the sourdough starter, milk, water, and flour in a large bowl until combined. Cover with plastic wrap.
  2. The next morning, stir in the remaining ingredients until well-combined. Heat a griddle or castiron skillet. When hot, grease the pan with butter and cook the pancakes using 1/4 cup of batter for each. When they begin to turn golden and bubble, flip and cook until the second side is golden. Repeat until all batter has been used.
  3. Serve hot with your choice of toppings such as fruit, butter, and real maple syrup.

  13. Is the batter refrigerated overnight (with milk in it)? How long does it need to set out in the morning before making pancakes?
