  • Total Time: 25 mins


  • 90g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup room temperature mature sourdough starter
  • 160g room temperature whole buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter melted and lukewarm
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt until well incorporated. Add your sourdough starter, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla. Whisk until no dry ingredients are remaining. Pour in your melted butter and stir well.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle pan over medium heat. Let the pan heat at its own pace, then add some butter to the skillet.
  3. Load 3 tablespoons of pancake batter into the pan, leaving enough space between each pancake so that they don’t overlap when they spread.
  4. Drop 5-7 fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries into the sourdough pancake batter while it’s raw.
  5. Cook the sourdough pancake for about 3 minutes, or until the bottoms have become a deep golden brown. Flip and cook the pancakes for another 2-3 minutes. If your pancakes become brown too quickly, then lower the heat so that they cook thoroughly.
  6. Transfer the fluffy pancakes to serving plates and enjoy!

Can I Make These Blueberry Pancakes Without a Sourdough Starter?

You can certainly make these pancakes without a starter. However, you’ll end up with regular pancakes instead of sourdough pancakes, which might work for you if you’re looking for pancakes that are sweet without the subtlety of sourdough.

Additionally, you can opt for a sourdough discard in this recipe, especially if you’re looking for a hint of sourdough to tickle your taste buds with each bite.

Can I Freeze Blueberry Sourdough Pancakes?

Hi! My name is Natasha and I'm specialized in home sourdough bread baking and currently based in Slovakia - a very small country in Central Europe. My bread baking story began in 2011 when I decided to give up commercial yeast. I felt tired all the time (especially after eating bread and other foods made with yeast), I wasn’t motivated to do anything, had trouble concentrating throughout the day, my abdomen was bloated and I was like a trumpet on steroids – basically, I was quite a wreck. I was a big bread lover (and still am) and having to stop eating bread was quite hard at that time but I felt I was on a right way to give my body a chance to heal itself.
