Raspberry SD Pancakes

Here are a couple of shots of the SD Raspberry Pancakes made for breakfast a couple of days ago.  The spring was incredible !!! I used a starter that had been refreshed 3 days before some it wasn't in peak form.  Made the batter the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight.  Very tasty too.  Another blog on TFL, sorry I can't remember which, inspired me.

Ok here goes:

1 C starter( I use 1:4:5 semi stiff)1 1/4 C AP flour (depends on how you like your pancakes and the flour you use.  You want the batter to be on the thicker side)1 C milk2 eggs -slightly beaten1 tsp baking soda1 tsp baking powder1 tsp yeast2-3 T melted butter - or oil3 T sugar1/2 teaspoon salt Dissolve the starter in the milk.  Mix everything (except the BP and BS) together by hand, cover with plastic and let sit for 1-2 hours.  Put in the fridge to retard over night. Take out the fridge in the morning and let sit for 1 hour.  Add the BS and BP and the blueberries.  Mix up and make the cakes in a cast iron skillet  on medium heat. Or, I do cheat sometimes, if I am missing something.  You can substitute 1 1/2  C pancake mix and 1 C water for everything except the starter, butter and blueberries.  You want it on the thicker side and you may need more mix to thicken it up. I use and highly recommend Krusteaz Buttermilk pancake mix if you go this route.    Sometimes I think I prefer the Krusteaz method better. It is hard to tell the difference

I was going to make these this morning and wondered if I have an active sourdough starter going if I should add the yeast also?

Would I still have to retard the BS and BP overnight with the starter with an active starter?

Do you let the pancake mix rise for awhile before making them? thanks, Kathy

You will still add BS0da and BPowder - I suppose you could omit the yeast if retarding overnight - don't see why not, but I never have.

You would probably not retard  with the BS and BP  added since they go in right before you put the pancake batter in the pan..

I just take the SD batter out of the fridge and let it warm up to room temp  - about an hour or so - Add the BS and BP and into the pan they go.  It might rise a little bit as it sits but I haven;t noticed it doing so.
