Servings 4


  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 3 apples, peeled and sliced


  • In a large bowl, combine sourdough starter, flour, and milk. Cover the bowl with a towel or cloth and leave at room temperature overnight (up to 24 hrs). Take one cup and return it to the fridge for use later.
  • Whisk eggs, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and sugar into the fermented flour and milk mixture.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. With cast iron inside of the oven.
  • Once the skillet is hot, remove it and put on a safe work surface.
  • Add one tablespoon of butter and let it melt and coat the bottom of the skillet.
  • Add in a single layer of fruit and give it a second to sizzle. Put over heat if your pan has cooled too much.
  • Add in the batter. You want to add in enough batter to cover the fruit and the bottom of your skillet.
  • Place the skillet back in the over for approximately 15 minutes, or until the pancake looks evenly cooked and the edges have a bit of crisp to them.
  • Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Serve with favorite condiments, syrups, fruit, or Chantilly cream.



The batter should look like a thick milkshake but if your batter is too stiff add in a splash of milk.
If you’re using soft fruit, do not wait for it to sizzle. Add in the batter immediately.
