Sourdough Discard Master Batter

This is one of the best, most versatile sourdough discard recipes.  I have made many variations (crumpets, pikelets, scallion pancakes) and they are all excellent.  Quick, easy and delicious!


  • 1 cup Sourdough Starter Discard (unfed)
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • Butter for cooking

Preheat pan on low heat.  Combine ingredients (except butter).  Mixture should be fluffy.

Melt butter in skillet.  Pour batter into buttered rings or freeform shapes. 

Cook on low heat 5 – 6 minutes until dry bubbles form on top.

Flip and cook an additional 3 – 4 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

Top or stir in fruit (pineapple, blueberries) for sweet cakes
or vegetables (soy sauce, garlic, scallions, cabbage, carrots, onion) for savory pancakes.
