Sourdough pancake I

My friend CH gave me some sourdough starter the other day and I tried making sourdough bread.  Unfortunately I failed miserably.   

So yesterday, she decided to gave us demo on making baguette and sourdough bread.

It was a long day but really rewarding.  I had so much fun that I couldn't sleep.  Will blog on my new learning journey later on.

As for now, I took home some starter and combine with what I had previously, I turned them into Sourdough pancake.  This recipe does not use additional flour so it is really interesting.


Findings: The pancake is soft and fluffy but I find the baking soda a tad to strong to my liking.  As usual, son said just to load it up with maple syrup which is his favourite.  

Not sure if I reduced the baking soda, will it still gives me the same texture.  Will experiment it later on.

What you need:

454g fresh sourdough starter
1 egg
40g castor sugar 
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp milk

Melted butter for frying

Method:

Beat egg, sugar, oil and baking soda together.

Add in sourdough starter and mix until combined.

Add in milk to thin out to pancake batter consistency.  Add a little more if too thick.

Heat pan over medium heat, brush a layer of melted butter.

Pour batter and cook until golden brown. Flip and cook the other side.

Serve with jam or maple syrup.


Enjoy!
