Sourdough Pancakes and Waffles

We always have sourdough starter (masa madre) on hand because we bake bread frequently. This is a simple batter you can make up the night before, and it will be almost ready for your pancake, or waffles breakfast in the morning. When used for pancakes, this recipe give you some of the lightest crepe like pancakes you will ever taste. This batter recipe will yield about 20 to 22 pancakes, so you can easily cut the recipe in half when needed.

  • ½ cup (1 stick) of butter
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1¼ cup of recently fed sourdough starter (masa madre) 
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar packed
  • 1½ cups of all purpose flour
  • The first step is to prepare the batter for fermenting
  • Warm butter and milk together in a sauce pan until the butter is melted, or use the microwave on high for about 30 seconds. 
  • Pour the mixture into a medium mixing bowl and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
  • Stir the sourdough starter down to release the built up gases before measuring.
  • When the milk and butter are cool, add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Cover mixing bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let the batter sit at room temperature overnight (8 to 14 hours).
  • The next morning, preheat your griddle/skillet, or waffle iron. I usually put a teaspoon of coconut oil on my griddle to prevent the pancakes from sticking. When using a waffle iron, I use a non-stick spray, like bakers secret, or PAM.
  • Remove the plastic wrap from the batter bowl, whisk in 2 large eggs and ¼ teaspoon of baking soda.
  • Use the batter to make pancakes, whatever size you like, or pour ½ cup+ of batter onto a hot waffle iron to bake for 3 to 5 minutes until golden and crisp.
