  • 150 grams sourdough starter
  • 1 large egg
  • 220 grams whole milk
  • 1 tbsp butter melted and cooled
  • 1 vanilla pod seeds only
  • 175 grams flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50 grams sugar
  1. In a large bowl, whisk the sourdough starter, egg, milk, melted butter and vanilla pod seeds until a thick but fluffy batter has formed.

  2. Next whisk in the flour, baking soda and sugar making sure that no lumps form.

  3. Brush your pan with a little oil.

  4. Pour roughly an eighth of the mix into your pan (see note 1) and cook for 2-3 minutes or until bubbles start to appear on the top side of the pancake and set.

  5. Flip and then cook for another 2 minutes or until the pancake is cooked through.

  6. Repeat until all of the mix has been used.

  7. Serve with your choice of fruit and syrup.

Recipe Notes

Wonder how I manage to get perfectly round, equally sized pancakes every time? I use an ice cream scoop! It's the perfect way to measure out your pancake batter and pour into your pan.
