Another pancake recipe? I know, right?!?
I don't know why it's the baked goods that seem to always make it to the blog. Maybe it's because it's something we make when we aren't hurried? I don't know.
These pancakes came about due to necessity. COVID19 has really changed how we do things it seems. Bread has been scarse. I've always wanted to make my own sourdough starter but until now, I didn't have the motivation to make it happen. In an effort to save money, make fewer trips to get groceries, and for enjoyment, I finally made my own sourdough starter from scratch. It's so easy. It's really been an exciting experience for me.
Did you know that many people throw away half of their starter for days in a row while they establish a good starter? I hate waste. I especially hate waste when resources are hard to come by. Stores have been wiped of flour and bread. I suppose everyone else had the same idea of making bread. While scrounging for recipes that use discarded sourdough starter, I found one for pancakes. Simple enough!
Holy moly smokes!!! That's Ellie's term. HA HA. The texture of these pancakes is amazing. They don't fall! They stay fluffy and puffy. As long as I have sourdough starter in my house, I won't be making pancakes without it anymore.
Let me know how yours turn out. What are your favorite pancake toppings? Did you try the little freezer PBJ sandwiches?
