Sourdough (Part 3) - Beyond Bread
Until two days ago, I had never made my own sourdough bread. But I had used sourdough starter. Mostly for pancakes and biscuits. I use the biscuit recipe at http://www.recipesfromscratch.com/categ/sourdough.htm. Rather than post that recipe here without permission, I thought it would be best just to send you there.
I have used their pancake recipes before and they were good. But honestly, I came up with my own and I like it better. :)
So here you go, they come out light and fluffy.
2 cups sourdough starter
1/2 cup milk
1 TBS oil or melted butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBS sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 - 2 cups flour
Mix milk, egg, and oil together well. Add to starter.
Combine salt, sugar, baking powder and 1 1/2 cups of flour.
Mix the dry ingredients into the starter mixture. If your batter seems thin, add a bit more flour 1/4 cup at a time. If it seems too thick, add more milk 1 - 2 TBS at a time.
Fry on a hot griddle like any other pancake. When it looks bubbly and somewhat dry, it's time to flip. The second side will cook faster than the first.
I like to set my oven to 200F when I start my pancakes. I set a large baking dish in the oven and put the pancakes in it as they finish. This way they all come to the table hot.
