Adina & Adam’s Sourdough Pancakes

Adam and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary, which is to say that we’re most definitely family at this point. Though we’re thinking about having kids soon, right now we’re pretty obsessed with our sourdough starter. We feed it, hire a babysitter to tend to it while we’re out of town (my sister or Adam’s brother), and do a lot of fun things together. And it doesn’t cry…so should we just leave it at three? Our most recent experiment was sourdough pancakes, and we think they turned out pretty flippin’ great (get it?). Here’s the recipe for you:


2 cups fresh sourdough starter (fed the day before so it’s super active)
1 egg
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
1 tsp. baking soda
2-4 Tbsp. Water or kefir
Butter or coconut oil for frying



Mix together sourdough starter, egg, sugar, oil and baking soda.

Add kefir or water to thin the batter to normal pancake batter consistency. Begin with 2 tablespoons and then just add a little more at a time as needed (it will be different depending on the consistency of your sourdough starter).

Heat a griddle or iron skillet over medium heat. Melt a slice of butter or coconut oil and when hot, add ¼ cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until the pancake forms bubbly holes all around the edges (about 2 minutes); flip it and cook the other side.
