Once You Go Sourdough...

Pancakes, that is, you'll never go back.  They're so good and don't have that tinny aftertaste you get with the baking powder variety. mmm mmm mmm

Is there a recipe to these?  I'd love to try them!  I have my first starters going and think I'm ready for a test batch this weekend!

 

Thanks!

Good timing on this post CayoKath! I tried sourdough pancakes for the first time this past weekend and they were absolutely amazing, a huge hit with the wife and one of my kids. (the other kid held out for a while since they didn't 'look' like the normal pancakes I used to make, but she was won over in the end) I ended up making them both Saturday and Sunday mornings.

I didn't expect much since the recipe was so simple, but was blown away by the subtle flavor. It was my first absolute win with my 1-month-old starter, and has motivated me to more baking!

I used the recipe from wildyeastblog*: http://www.wildyeastblog.com/2009/02/24/sourdough-pancakes/

* I'd also recommend her Norwich Sourdough recipe, as well as her "how to" advice on maintaining starters and various other baking topics (choose "how to" from the Categories drop-down on the right).

I will try the recipe listed above.  I take a little different approach and the pancakes come out very fluffy with a great texture.

 My recipe is simple,

Wet = 3 cups of active starter, 1 egg,  2/3 cup milk, 2 T olive oil

Dry = 1 cup AP flour, 1 t salt, 1 t baking soda, 1 t baking powder, 2 T sugar

Combine the dry and whisk, combine the wet and whisk,  combine the dry to the wet and whisk.  It should start to rise and be very thick.  bake on med hot griddle until golden brown and delicious. I like mine with butter and maple syrup.

These are my favorite.  If you are looking for a little more tang use one cup of butter milk.
