Sometimes you’ll find yourself with more sourdough starter than you can use. Rather than just throw it away, ask if anyone you know might like some, with a baking session to get them into making sourdough loaves for themselves. Or think about what else you can make with it – starting with these pancakes.


  • 100g/oz/scant 1 cup white sourdough starter


  1. Whisk the sourdough starter with most of the flour. Cover and leave at room temperature overnight.
  2. The next day, whisk in the remaining flour and other pancake ingredients to make a stiff batter.
  3. Melt a small amount of butter in a frying pan, over a medium-high heat. Pour in spoonfuls of batter to form circles about 10–15cm/4–6in in diameter. Cook for
