Cinnamon Raisin Sourdough Pancakes with Fresh Apple Topping

I recently started making homemade sourdough bread. If you know what I am talking about, I have a lot of discard in my fridge. So I looked up recipes, modified, and think this one works well.


  • 500mg sourdough discard
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsps sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Get a griddle hot and melt some butter on. Then mix all of the ingredients together, stir well, and pour batter onto the griddle. Make some pancakes!

Apple Topping

  • 4-6 apples, peeled, cut, and cored
  • Cinnamon, all spice, salt, cardamom to taste
  • 1/2 cup water

Put apples, seasoning and water in a crockpot and heat until apples are tender. Pour apple Topping over cinnamon raisin pancakes and top with butter, syrup, whipped cream, or anything else you like!

To note: I tried to make some savory pancakes, but the sourdough discard fermented in the fridge long enough that it was pretty sour, so making sweet pancakes was ideal.
