Why Make Sourdough Pancakes?
Well, once you taste these sourdough buttermilk pancakes with all their delicious tang and light fluffy texture you won’t ask that question. Until then, I’ll tell you why you should make these. First of all, if you do look after a sourdough starter, you know that you need to find useful ways to use up the sourdough discard (the amount of starter that you need to throw away each time you feed your starter). This is a perfect use for that discard. If you’re like me, and tend to keep your starter in the fridge all week and feed it on the weekends, making these sourdough buttermilk pancakes will happen at just the right time – kicking off the weekend the right way. Finally, the flavor in these pancakes is so delicious (boosted by the buttermilk and the sourdough) and the texture is so fluffy that you’ll want to keep a sourdough starter for this recipe alone!
