Green Apple Sourdough Pancakes

June 23, 2022


For the Sourdough Starter:

1 cup whole milk

1 teaspoon active dry yeast (1/2 packet)

1/2 cup apple cider

3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 cup all-purpose flour

For the Pancakes:

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 large egg, slightly beaten

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 small tart green apple (such as

Granny Smith), unpeeled, diced

1 to 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Maple syrup or honey, for serving

Chopped pecans, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, warm the milk to around 110 degrees F to make the sourdough starter. Transfer to a medium bowl, top with the yeast, and let stand for 5 minutes or until frothy. Until smooth, whisk in the apple cider, brown sugar, butter, and 1 cup of flour. Overnight, let the covered object stand at room temperature.
  2. Make the pancakes the following morning by combining the sourdough starter with 1/2 cup flour, an egg, baking soda, and an apple. In a cast-iron griddle or nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat and stir to coat. For each pancake, pour roughly 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle. About 3 minutes after the edges start to set and the tops start to bubble, flip the pancakes over and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden and thoroughly done. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, including extra butter as necessary. If using, top with syrup and add pecans as a garnish.
