Layered chocolate pancake (made of sourdough and yogurt)

Two fermented superfoods make today's epic dessert: sourdough and yogurt.

We use leftover sourdough (discarded after feeding a sourdough starter) and homemade probiotic yogurt made with Yogurt Plus starter.

Important: As its name suggests, sourdough is sour. Desserts made with it will have a distinctly tangy flavor which might not be for everybody. 

Makes: 1 medium-large pancake
Prep times: 5 minutes + 15 minutes cook time + 5 minutes assembly


  • 1 cup discarded sourdough (batter consistency. If too thick, add a splash of milk / half & half / cream)
  • 1½ tbsps. cocoa powder, or to taste
  • Natural sweetener to taste
  • A squirt of pure vanilla extract
  • Butter to grease the pan
  • 1 cup thick yogurt or cultured dairy of your choice
  • Berries or other fruit of choice, a few pieces 


  1. In a deep bowl, mix sourdough, dairy, cocoa powder, sweetener, and vanilla until fairly uniform.
  2. Pour into a pan greased with butter, and cook on each side till firm. 
  3. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. Slice into desired shapes and layer with yogurt and fruit.

Have fun with it!
