I've had a request to put up the sourdough pancake recipe so here you go...
2 cups active sourdough starter
sugar or maple syrup to taste
cinnamon to taste
2 tbsp. oil or melted butter
1tsp bicarb soda
2-4 tbsp. milk, coconut milk or water (your choice)
Butter or coconut oil for frying pancakes
Handy tip: mix other ingredients separately then add to the sourdough starter & just fold through so you don't knock out the air bubbles.
1. mix together egg, sugar or maple, oil and bicarb and sourdough starter,
2. add (milk, coconut milk or water) to thin the batter to a pancake batter consistency.(start with 2 tablespoons of liquid and add more if needed
3. heat frying pan and once hot, melt a slice of butter or coconut oil on the pan and spoon approx. 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. cook until golden and flip to cook other side
Handy tip: to see is your starter is active drop a small amount into a glass of water and if it rises to the top it is active.
If anyone is interested in the stewed plums (which were delicious):
(we used about 12 blood plums)
Halve and pip the plums, add 1 tsp raw sugar, a couple of star anise, 1 scraped vanilla & pod, squeeze juice of one orange and just a dash of water (enough to stop them sticking to the bottom of the pot). stew until softened.
