Blueberry Sourdough Pancakes with sourdough starter recipe

It’s been years since I have prepared any sour dough recipes so I decided to put some sourdough together and make sourdough blueberry pancakes. Sour dough starter is not hard to make it just takes a few days and it’s ready to use. I have included in this post the recipe I used for the starter.

Blueberries are in season so this is a great way to use some of the fresh blueberries. I don’t like to mix the blueberries into the batter; instead I sprinkle them on the uncooked side of the pancake as it starts to cook. This way the blueberries are evenly distributed and you can use any amount you want.

  3. Lightly grease a skillet or griddle at medium high heat. (Cast iron skillet or griddle is great for this) Pour the amount of batter needed for the size pancakes you want to prepare, allowing room for the batter to spread, sprinkle the amount of blueberries you want on the pancake. Cook the pancake until golden brown and bubbles have formed on the top. Flip the pancake and cook until done.
