You ain't lived 'till you ate these. One taste and you'll see why a 'sourdough prospector' would give up his gold claim before his sourdough starter.

I SO LOVE this recipe. I have just started using sourdough,{AGAIN},,, This recipe uses equal amounts of starter and flour. That makes a good SOUR dough. Higher flour ratios make a more watered down cake. THIS IS YUM.

AWESOME! I don't think I've ever had pancakes brown up so perfectly! They are tasty, too! My half-batch made a dozen (12) pancakes. I'll definitely keep this recipe in mind as a great use for sourdough starter!

Amazing! I have a young starter, so not so tangy yet, but wonderful texture. I have to say this is closer to the 8 servings, or 4 if you are a starving lumberjack who is a Sumo wrestler in the off season... I made about a dozen pancakes the size of dinner plates, so we wrapped and froze the leftovers for another time. Thanks for the great recipe! Served with boysenberry syrup and some sweetened sliced strawberries.
