i HAVE BEEN MAKING SOURDOUGH PANCAKES FOR YEARS AND WAS GLAD TO SEE THIS ONE POSTED TO TRY SOMEONE ELSES RECIPE. I USED 'BISQUICK' FOR THE BUTTERMILK PANCAKE MIX AND EVERYTHING TURNED OUT DELICIOUS. THANKS FOR ANOTHER WAY TO USE MY STARTER. THEY ALSO SMELLED WONDERFUL! JANET IN CA.

Maybe it was the pancake mix I used, but I was expecting these to be a lot better. The outside was tough and hard to cut and the inside was so airy that you didn't feel like you were getting enough bang for your buck. The flavor was minimal, and I have a great sourdough starter. The best pancakes are somehow light and fluffy and dense at the same time, and these weren't it.

Great recipe. Very simple, tasted great! I wanted another way to use my sweet sourdough starter and now I have one. Everyone in the family (hubby and kids) loved them. There were none left! Thanks!

Enjoyed this very much. Has a great flavor. For some added flavor I added diced apples and cinnamon. Also used Bisquick instead of buttermilk mix because that is what I had. I think any pancake mix would work great. Wonderful!

I thought these were great. Yes, they tasted a bit like sourdough, and they were light enough it was difficult to flip them, but we all loved the lightness and the sourdough flavor. In fact, my 5 kids thought they tasted so good they didn't want syrup or jam on their pancakes. This is a wonderful bonus...much less sticky!! Now I'm going to go look for a homemade buttermilk mix recipe.

These were good pancakes... I don't know what everyone's problem is with them. I followed the recipe exactly and they came out great. Can't say much for the "butter" and "syrup" that was available to me at the time, but the pancakes themselves were quite good. My only problem was flipping them and they burn easily... but it was the first time I've made pancakes in years so that could be from lack of experience. We ate them all :)

I made these for supper the other night, and had mixed reveiws. I liked them, and so did my mother and father, but my younger brother and sister said that they were "gross". Whatever that means. I guess it just depends on personal taste. I will scale this recipe to serve just one though, and make it for just myself. I liked them quite well.

My family all loved these pancakes. They have a slightly sweet and sour flavor, but not overpowering. They melt in your mouth, and are slightly cake-like in texture. I used a cup of my friendship bread starter on day 10. I also used Bisquick. I will make these AGAIN, for sure!
