If you don't have time to make traditional sourdough bread, this Zaar recipe that I adopted is perfect for using up your starter. I prepared the recipe and was pleasantly surprised by the taste of the pancakes. The recipe makes a super thin batter that results in a light pancake with a subtle sourdough taste. Because the batter is so thin, the pancakes cook very quickly making this perfect for those rushed, hectic mornings. My family and I really enjoyed these topped with my recipe for Hot Spiced Fruit Hot Spiced Fruit. Don't have any sourdough starter? I highly recommend using Sourdough Starter Sourdough bread and starter by Janice Boice.
- 1⁄2 cup active starter
- 1⁄2 cup pancake mix
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- Making sure the sourdough starter is at room temperature, mix all ingredients well.
- Be careful not to over mix.
- Small lumps are ok.
- Lightly grease a hot cast iron griddle.
- Drop onto griddle with a large spoon while the batter is still rising.
These are pretty good. It makes a nice small bowl of batter so you're not left with extra pancakes. The 4-serving size is just about perfect. It made 11 pancakes for me. They have a faint sourdough flavor and results in a thin batter.
