Our global quest for pancake recipes bought us upon this niche little cake in a pan. Made with sourdough starter it really has got all of the 'waste no bread' bases covered. By Hobbs House Bakery.


3 eggs

120 millitres sourdough starter

A good pinch of sea salt

170 millilitres milk

100 grams plain white flour

20 grams butter 


  1. Break the eggs into a large bowl and whisk.
  2. Add milk, the sourdough starter, salt, flour and whisk all together.
  3. Melt a big knob of butter in a large frying pan and whisk into the pancake batter.
  4. Finally, fry the pancakes in the large frying pan, tossing occasionally until they are golden on both sides. Lubricate your frying pan between pancakes with a little oil on kitchen paper.
  5. Serve while still warm.
