Simple Sourdough Pumpkin Pancakes

I woke up this morning wanting to try making sourdough pancakes with my leftover starter.  I looked up the KAF recipe that people mentioned here, and saw that it used an overnight sponge.  I wanted to whip something out fast and simple, and spontaneous.  So...no sponge for me!  I love the result...light, fluffy (they rose quite a bit), healthy (well, the plate that is pictured is my husband's...mine was healthier).  I had some pumpkin in the freezer that went into the mix.  I don't have exact measurements because I was just tossing stuff in, but here goes: 

About 1/4 c. starter, cold from the fridge (just dump in a big glop)

about 3/4c milk (made from dry)

1 egg

about 1/2 t. baking soda

2 t sugar

about 1/4 c pumpkin

about 1/2 c whole wheat flour

1 packet stevia

Mix it all up until you have a batter (make adjustments if it's too thin or thick)....This made 5 pretty big cakes.

I like to make SD pancakes for breakfast, that's if I remember to make the sponge the night before.  Now I can use this to make some quick and dirty SD pancake if I forget the sponge.  Thank you for the idea!  Al

I didn't feel like starting a sponge last night but this morning I wanted to make SD pancakes.  So I got the starter out from the fridge and used it as is.  Didn't use pumpkin, just more starter and a bit of oil to make a batch.  It was pretty decent.  My little guy and husband liked it.  Thank you for the idea.  Al

Glad it turned out good!  I've never tried it w/ the sponge...I'll have to do that next time so I can compare.
