SOUR DOUGH PANCAKES
1 cup starter
1-1/2 cup AP Flour
1 cup milk
3 + 1 tbs butter (or shortening)
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp double acting baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt,
milk or water as necessaryTechnique:
In a bowl large enough to allow doubling, mix the starter with the flour and 1 cup of the milk. Stir well to get air in it. Cover with cling wrap, and hold overnight in a warm (75F-85F) place. Tip: If your kitchen isn't that warm, place a pan of very hot water in the bottom of the oven, the bowl of starter on the rack above it and close the oven door. That will do fine.
Beat the egg. Mix in the remaining ingredients with just enough water or milk so the dry ingredients dissolve.
Mix the egg mixture with the sourdough batter. Add enough milk or water to form a batter of whatever consistency you like. Thicker for fluffier pancakes, thinner for thinner. The baking soda will make the batter foam. Allow the batter to settle long enough to cook bacon and/or sausage (about ten minutes, if you can't take a hint).
Meanwhile preheat your griddle to medium. More pancakes are ruined by too much heat than by too little. Check the heat by sprinkling a few drops of water on the griddle. They should neither sit, nor spit and hiss, but dance. When the griddle is preheated, grease the griddle with the remaining tbs of shortening and make a test pancake (the first pancake always comes out poorly). Give it to the dog. 'Atta a good pooch! You may want to take a bite yourself for scientific purposes.
This is pure pancake gold, so remember it. If the first side of the first pancake was not an even golden brown, that resulted from too much grease on the griddle combined with too much heat. The first pancake itself took care of the excess grease, which leaves the heat. Again, the sacrificial pancake took a lot of heat off the griddle so get the next batch on quick -- but also lower the temperature slightly.Variation
: Use two cups of starter and omit the extra flour, milk and the overnight proof. Forgot the BP and bump the soda to 1 tsp.
