Based on the recipe from King Arthur


  • 227 g mature sourdough starter
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ¼ to ½ tsp salt
  • ⅜ tsp baking soda


  1. Stir sugar, salt, and baking soda into starter. It should rise, and bubble, becoming billowy
  2. Heat griddle on medium low, lightly grease with oil, if non-stick add some butter.
  3. Lightly grease 4 english muffin rings (or jar lids with their tops removed)
  4. Place rings on griddle, and pour ¼ cup of batter into each.
  5. Cook for about 5 minutes, until tops are set and full of holes.
  6. Flip and cook for 3 minutes, until golden on the bottom.

You can eat them warm, or let them cool so they set a bit, and then toast them.
