We had sourdough hotcakes

Let's see if I can figure this out. Old dogs and new tricks don't always work.

here's the recipe I sorta followed.

the night before
1/2 cup starter
1-1/2 cups flour
1 cup water

in the morning
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

just before starting
1/4 tsp. baking soda

this recipe says it makes 18 very large hotcakes, so since there was just myself and a hungry shark teenage boy, I cut things down and we ended up with 8-9 hotcakes, about 6-7 inches across. I'm assuming everybody knows how to cook hotcakes.

my recipe for 2 hungry people, not for a ravenous horde goes like this:

1/2 cup starter
3/4 to 1 cup flour
1/2 to 3/4 cup water

1 egg, lightly beaten
2 to 3 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 to 3 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. baking soda

they were good. we liked them so much we made them again the next day.
