My Little Corner of the World

I have been planning to make sourdough pancake for a while but my non stick pan has already lost its on stick layer. Recently I bought a new pan and decided to try it out.

Most recipes I requires using large quantities of sourdough starter discard but I don’t have that much discard. I only feed my sourdough starter weekly in the fridge or three times a week if I happen to bake.

So I used a basic pancake recipe and did some conversions. I happen to have 120g sourdough starter discard with me. This is an instant one that does not taste too sour. If you would like it to be sour, you can mix the sourdough starter discard, flour and water then keep it overnight and mix the rest of the ingredients the following day.
