Sourdough Pancakes with new starter

Sourdough Pancakes with new starter

I started up a new starter culture last week using Sourdo's Polish Rye. It is now working well enough that I'm starting to have extra levain, so the first thing I made with it were sourdough pancakes. I really liked Knead_Love's "Meditation on Sourdough Pancakes" blog entry (, so I used that as my base recipe with the following mods:

* Tripled the batch size, except for the brown sugar, which I just doubled (4 T total)

* Instead of AP flour, I milled 90% hard red spring wheat and 10% rye (the same ratio in the starter)

* Melted butter instead of oil

* I make them huge

They came out delicious!

Add blueberries on the raw side

... three days later, after the remaining batter has gotten really, really sour :)
