A few years ago, I wrote the Sourdough Cookery Cookbook, which became one of my bestsellers on Etsy. This week, I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes on the blog, Strike It Rich Sourdough Pancakes.
I created this recipe for those who are watching their fat/sugar etc. AND those who want the “loaded” variety. Enjoy!
Strike it Rich Pancakes
1-1/2 cups sourdough starter
1-1/2 cups lukewarm low-fat milk
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons half Splenda/half sugar (or granulated sugar)
1/4 cup liquid egg substitute (or 1 egg)
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Lite salt (or salt)
1 teaspoon baking soda
The night before:
Remove your sourdough starter from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. Pour 1-1/2 cups sourdough
into a large bowl and add milk and flour, stir well, cover and let set on counter until morning. (Don’t forget to add 1-1/2 cups of flour and 1-1/2 cups of water to your original starter, stir, and let it sit on your counter for a few hours before you put it back in the refrigerator!)
In the morning:
Mix the sourdough starter, sugar, egg, olive oil and salt. Mix well. When ready to make pancakes, add the baking soda.
This will cause a gentle foaming and rising action in the batter. Let the mixture bubble and foam a minute or two.
For each pancake, pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup sourdough pancake batter onto a hot griddle. When bubbles form and sides look
cooked, flip the pancake over for another 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown.
Makes 12 nice-size pancakes.
