Whether you use milk kefir, yogurt or buttermilk, these pancakes are delicious with a rich flavour of cultured sourdough. This recipe is perfect with wheat or gluten free flour and can be flavoured with fruit, chocolate chips or cheese! See the sections above for more details.




  1. To culture the pancakes for a delicious sourdough-like flavour see the section above. The instructions will depend on whether you are using wheat or gluten free flours.
  2. Start by preheating a frying pan on medium.
  3. If you didn’t do the overnight ferment, then start by mixing the flour into the buttermilk.
  4. Next mix in the eggs, oil and vanilla extract into the buttermilk and flour mix.
  5. When the pan is hot mix in the sugar, baking soda and baking powder. The baking soda will become active immediately as the whole mixture is quite sour.
  6. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the preheated pan. Cook until brown on both sides (about 3 minutes a side).
  7. Serve immediately.
