Sourdough Whole Wheat Pancakes
Years ago a friend of mine gave me this simple recipe for sourdough pancakes. They can be made with AP flour or whole wheat flour, your choice. I like mine with whole wheat flour and while cooking them, I like to drop some blueberries into the pancakes as they cook on the griddle.
The night before you want pancakes, put 1 cup starter in a large glass or plastic bowl. Add 2 cups flour(whole wheat or AP), 2cups lukewarm milk or water, 2 TBSP sugar. Mix and let stand covered overnight(at least 12 hours) in a warm place.
The next morning when you are ready to make pancakes, get the griddle heated. To the starter mix you made up last night, add 1 egg, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 TBSP vegetable oil(3 TBSP for waffles), 2 TBSP sugar and 1 tsp. baking soda dissolved in 1 TBSP lukewarm milk or water. Mix well. Use 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake and cook as you usually do for pancakes.
This is a simple recipe that my family enjoys. The recipe makes enough pancakes for 4 generous servings(about 3 pancakes each).
