Zip in a Bowl

  • 227g (8 oz) Flour Farm’s GF Sourdough Starter recipe, room temp (1 C – our starter is 100% hydrated)
  • 1 T Cane Sugar (14g)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Aluminum Free Double Acting Baking Powder (6g)
  • 1/2 tsp Extra Fine Pink Himalayan Salt (3g)
  • 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (5 ml)
  • 1 Large Pasture Raised Egg (50g)
  • 2 T Butter, melted and cooled (28g/1 oz)
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract (5 ml)


Equipment: Digital scale (preferred), Griddle, Mixing bowl, Whisk, Spatula, Serving plate

Before You Dive In – Prep:

  • Bring sourdough starter to room temperature (it will puff and expand in size)
  • Bring egg to room temperature (preferred)
  • Melt and cool butter
  • Lightly grease/butter a griddle

Step 1: Add all ingredients to a medium/large mixing bowl and whisk until combined.

Step 2: Allow batter to sit for a few minutes while the griddle heats to 350 F (177C). The griddle is ready if drops of water sizzle and dance on contact.

Step 3: Pour batter onto griddle in your favorite shape and size. For this recipe, we made 9 pancakes weighing one ounce (28g) in a the shape of a circle.

Step 4: Cook pancakes on each side for a few minutes. Wait to flip pancakes until bubbles that appear on the surface start to pop and the edges pull up.

Step 5: A pancake is ready if you push gently on  middle and the cake springs back. If your finger leaves an indentation or batter leaks out, cook for a few more minutes. Transfer to a warm serving platter and dress them up if you like. Eat immediately.



Store: Pancakes store in the freezer for up to a month. Reheat in the microwave or toaster oven set to warm.
