Recipe: Whole wheat sourdough pancakes
January 30, 2008
About 15 pancakes
Note: This recipe calls for "ripe" starter -- starter that has been fed the night before (see recipe for whole wheat starter).
- 9 ounces (about 1 cup) "ripe" whole wheat starter
- 5 ounces (1 cup) flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly, plus a little for the pan
- 2 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- In a large bowl, mix together the starter, flour and milk along with one-half cup water until smooth. Let stand 30 minutes while you melt the butter and prepare the other ingredients.
- Whisk the melted butter, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, salt and baking soda together until smooth, then stir the mixture into the bowl with the starter. Blend only until combined.
- Heat a skillet or cast-iron pan over medium heat and add a nub of butter. Pour in about one-fourth cup of batter, and cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Flip and cook until the bottom of the pancake is slightly browned, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Repeat, adding more butter to the pan if necessary. Serve immediately.
