You know you've been baking too much sourdough bread when...
...when you wander around IKEA examining any container made from plastic or glass and assessing whether it would make a good container for a starter or not.
You also start to think of whether there's something you can do with that stuff you throw away everyday, when you feed the starter - and today Ronny whipped up some 'American' pancakes which were delicious, because they smelled a bit yeasty and had a slightly crispy surface, but were somewhat fluffy inside. I say 'American' pancakes because 'pancakes' in Europe are like crêpes, but maybe they're not American at all...and are Samurai Viking pancakes.
Ronny's Sourdough Pancakes
2 1/2 dl All Purpose Flour
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 1/2 dl Whole Milk
2 Tbsp Melted Butter
1 Medium Sized Egg
4 Tbsp Starter (from the stuff you were going to throw away at feeding time)
Step 1: Mix the dry ingredients inside a bowl.
Step 2: Melt the butter.
Step 3: Crack the egg into the dry ingredients. Add the milk and beat-it.
Step 4: Add 4 Tbsp of your starter and beat it some more.
That's all you need to do. Now cook it like regular pancakes.
The pancakes will have a faint yeasty smell to them, will be a bit fluffy inside and slightly cripsy on the outside. Enjoy!
