  • 1 C sourdough starter active, 100% hydration
  • 1/2 C milk warmed to 105-110 degrees
  • 2 C all purpose flour
  • 1/4 C Greek yogurt with live, active cultures
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt or more to taste
  • 4 Tbsp butter melted


  • In your mixer bowl, combine all of the ingredients with the exception of the melted butter.
  • Using your dough hook, mix for 3-4 minutes until the ingredients are combined. The dough will be shaggy and sticky.
  • Dump the dough out on a floured counter and work into a ball. Wash out the mixer bowl and lightly grease with a tiny bit of olive oil. Add the dough back to the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise for 4-5 hours.
  • Preheat the griddle to medium heat for 3-4 minutes. During that time, dump the dough out on a lightly floured counter and separate into 8 equal sections.
  • Roll each section out to 1/4 inch pieces. Transfer to your griddle and brush with melted butter. Cook on each side for 1 - 1.5 minutes. Flip, and brush the opposite side with more melted butter.
  • Each side is cooked when it starts to bubble and brown up slightly in patches. Transfer to a towel to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Enjoy
