Method

  1. Place your sourdough starter in a bowl. Crack in the eggs and pour in the milk, then beat the mixture well to combine.
  2. Add the flour and a pinch of sea salt, and mix until you have a thick, pourable batter.
  3. Put a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat and, once hot, add ½ tablespoon of oil, tilting the pan to cover.
  4. Use a ladle to spoon the batter into the pan. Each ladleful will make 1 pancake – make sure you leave space between each one so they have room to spread out slightly.
  5. Cook the pancakes for 1 to 2 minutes, or until little bubbles appear on the surface and the bases are golden, then flip them over.
  6. When the pancakes are golden on both sides, transfer them to a plate, then repeat with more batter, adding extra oil, if needed.
  7. Serve the pancakes right away, topped with a dollop of natural yoghurt, and some fresh fruit, if you like.
