Sourdough Pancakes


Andy Linn

Hey guys - recently found a copy of Lowbush Moose (and other Alaskan Recipes) by Gordon Nelson at my local goodwill. It has been interesting and have enjoyed working through it a bit.

I am a pancake guy and usually go with a baking mix - made up at least the night before. Pancakes in an eight inch cast iron skillet has been a staple. Gordon had a recipe in his book for using a sourdough starter.

Where has this been all my life?

2-1/2c lukewarm water
1 pkg active yeast
3c all-purpose or whole wheat flour

3c sourdough starter
1 egg beaten (2 eggs if richer)
1 c milk
1 tbl shortening, oil, bacon grease or melted butter
1tsp sugar or honey
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

Going to have to give this a try. We have been making sourdough bread for the past few months so I already have the starter.

I've been leaving the milk out and like the recipe better that way. I've also found that leaving the starter at room temp for 24h and then at least overnight in the fridge yields a good texture.
