Friendship Pancakes

Top Review by Jadelabyrinth

These made good tasting, pretty standard fair, pancakes. I ended up making seven 5-inch diameter pancakes. I was disappointed that I couldn't taste the starter flavor (sourdough) at all. I think I could have left the starter out of this recipe and still made passable pancakes, albeit somewhat less sweet of pancakes. Since this uses an odd amount of starter, versus most friendship recipes using 1/2 cup up to 2 cups in 1/2 cup increments, I am not sure that I would make this again since now I have an odd bit of starter left. I like to use it up each time, but that is just me. Overall, good flavor, tasty pancakes, just not the flavor I was hoping for.
