These using-up-the sourdough hotcakes got mixed reviews. Kids didn’t eat them, and Ted said it “tasted like pancakes a hundred years ago.” Great.
My reaction? Different. Interesting. Tangy. The texture is good – a tad rubbery, in a good way. Quite nice with brown sugar sprinkled on top (as suggested). Perhaps an acquired taste.
I mixed in blueberries to sweeten it, but next time, I’d probably make some significant changes:
- Less starter
- Use at least some milk, not all water
- Add some sugar to the batter
While they were frying, I started thinking this batter might make nice crumpets, but I couldn’t find metal rings to go in the cast-iron skillet to test my theory. But who knows… maybe I’ll try sourdough crumpets next time!
