Make the Pancake Batter
With the strawberries done, it's pancake time. You'll first whisk together the dry ingredients—all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and kosher salt—in one bowl, and the wet ingredients—eggs, whole milk, sourdough starter, and melted unsalted butter—in another. Then, pour the wet ingredient mixture into the dry ingredient mixture and stir until just combined. Justin says that you don't want the batter to be "totally smooth," so don't sweat it if there are a few clumps.
Flip and Serve
Heat up youror griddle over medium-high, and grease it with butter so your pancakes don't stick. Then, scoop either a heaping 1/4 cup or scant 1/3 cup of batter into the pan to form each pancake—Justin says to fit as many as you can in the pan without the pancakes touching. Cook them for a minute and a half to two minutes until bubbles appear on top, and then, flip them and cook for about another minute or two.
The finished pancakes should come out of the pan golden-brown. To serve them, stack 'em and pour on the strawberries, making sure to get that maple-molasses-strawberry situation in every bite.
