Once I learned the knack of maintaining a good sourdough starter for making bread it's been much easier to make other recipes using it, namely -- sourdough pancakes. A loaf of bread lasts us a week or more, so I figure the starter should be used for other recipes.
This recipe makes about 16 pancakes. I freeze extras having them on hand anytime for breakfast. We have blueberry, raspberry and blackberry bushes which we pick and freeze for use during the year. I used blueberries for this recipe.
During early summer months, farmers markets sell berries for around $3.00 a pint, which is a good time to stock up and freeze. Pancakes can me made without berries and also frozen. The flavor is good old-fashioned goodness!
