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
40g castor sugar
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp milk
Melted butter for frying
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.
