ISO - Sourdough Pancake Recipe

I am new to this site so please bear with me if I sound like a dill. I keep reading about sourdough pancakes and I must confess that I have never heard of them. Is there a recipe somewhere that I might try them?

Welcome to DC. I have never heard of sourdough pancakes, but I make a mean sour cream pancake.

"Sourdough Pancakes" is a real thing. You start with a culture, just like with sourdough bread.

The best most 'sourdough' tasting pancakes are started the night before by pre-combining the sourdough, fresh flour, milk, and a couple of tablespoons of sugar to really activate the mixture.

The next morning, the oil, salt, and eggs are added to the mixture. Baking soda is sometimes an ingredient but if you want the real tang of sourdough, leave it out. Adding baking soda makes a lighter but not as tangy pancake. Instead, let this mixture sit for awhile and it will naturally bubble due to the activated sourdough.

I cook the pancakes on the hottest setting I can achieve - 400-425 degrees on a well-oiled electric griddle. You can't walk away from these pancakes because they bubble up and cook very fast so timing when they're flipped is critical.

The finished pancakes are light with large bubbles and a fantastic flavor tang.

I love sourdough pancakes and have made them a few times with the "discard" from feeding the starter.

I never have enough time to make them, but when I do, oh my they are good. I do not start from the night, maybe an hour in advance, it is enough and I make fresh (hm, what is it called ?) sponge/starter. I do have recipe, but cannot get to it now and will be out of town this coming up week. If you are still here and still want to know, I will have to type it up and then post it here.
Let me know.
You are what you eat.

Thanks all. Read the recipe from Food Network and I must say, I have never added yeast to my sourdough starter. Now, in one day, I have seen two recipes with it. It certainly is much easier than trying to find a warm place in the kitchen in winter. It's winter here in Australia.
Am loving this site, everyone is so helpful. Will try the pancakes on Wednesday. Off to mahjong tomorrow, so have an early start.

There's a recipe on the King Arthur flour site too I believe. Apparently sour dough makes pretty good waffles as well since there seem to be recipes aplenty.
