I knew a lady in Post Falls Idaho who made sourdough pancakes that she raved about. She basically made a biga of sourdough and cooked it up as pancakes. They were so sour as to be nearly inedible.

My advise is to make your sourdough biga, and add it to a standard pancake batter, sans baking soda, or baking powder. Let it rest for ten minutes to allow the yeast to get working. Then make a test pancake and see if the flavor is right. Adjust as required.

If you want it, I can post my from scratch pancake recipe. Most everyone who has used it loves it.

For the standard batter to be mixed with sourdough, try this:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbs. sugar
1 large egg
3 tbs. cooking oil
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sourdough biga

Whisk together the oil and egg. Whisk in the milk. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk together. Fold in 1/2 cup of the sourdough biga.
Let rest for 10 minutes. Cook and serve with honey, and cheddar cheese. bacon or sausage on the side wouldn't hurt either.

Just in case you haven't heard of biga, it's a yeast starter for making many Italian breads. Here's a link to a good biga recipe - Biga Recipe - Allrecipes.com

I also linked to that recipe in my post above. However, it calls for a commercial starter which may not be available in the poster's area.

Have mixed my pancake dough ready for the morning. If you don't hear from me soon, you know I made a mistake.

Sourdough pancakes

Good news, I'm alive and well. Tried the pancakes on hubby first (he survived) and now they have become our new favorite breakfast. Served them with golden syrup, a staple in Australia, yummy. Next problem will be a new wardrobe of clothes for summer. Así es la vida.

We used to make sourdough starter from the Field and Stream magazine. I might have the recipe still. Otherwise, my dad probably does. It was really good for everything from pancakes to San Francisco style sourdough bread....

Thanks CWS4322, would be interested in another recipe so I could try it and compare. When you locate it, could I have a copy please?
