Fluffy Sourdough Pancakes/Waffles (discard starter)

Delicious and simple to make, fluffy sourdough pancakes and waffles using discard starter.
Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 30 mins
Servings 5


  • 1.5 cups of organic unbleached flour (I use a mix of all-purpose and whole wheat) Don't use enriched flour!
  • 1 tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 pastured eggs
  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 1 cup whole milk non-homogenized (or milk substitute)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted grass-fed butter


  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  • Next, crack the eggs into a medium-sized bowl and beat lightly.
  • Add the sourdough starter and mix well.
  • Next, add the milk.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix, but do NOT over-mix! A few lumps are o.k.
  • Set the timer for 10 minutes. Melt the butter while you are waiting.
  • When the timer goes off, add the melted butter.
  • Waffles: Follow the manufacturers instructions of your waffle maker. For my ceramic waffle maker, I set the timer for 5 minutes and have my waffle iron set to medium. Makes 5.
  • Pancakes: Put only a small amount of butter in the pan. I use my non-power burner at a 4, but your stove may be different. Makes about 15-20 depending on the size. (We like small pancakes in our house.)
