Sourdough Pancake Recipe

Sourdough Pancake Recipe

This sourdough pancake recipe is a great way to use up any excess sourdough. The sourdough starter gives these pancakes a depth of flavour that is perfect with both dinner and pudding course.

We have served our sourdough pancake recipe as a savoury dish with merguez sausages or they are great served sweet with your favourite toppings.

Some sourdough regimes sourly suggest you pour surplus dough down the sink. Not any more: let a surfeit of sourdough starter spark a pancake party.

You can buy our sourdough starter online.

If you love sourdough come and learn to bake on one of our bread making courses at our Cookery School in Chipping Sodbury.

Our sourdough pancake recipe great anytime of year, guaranteed.
