I have been learning something new to me: sourdough cooking! My sister sent me these recipes and they are great! (I have only made the waffles so far, but she made us the pancakes one day and they were delish!) Thanks, Becky! These are so yummy! And healthy. :D :D (Especially if you use whole wheat. But I don't know how to do that...yet.) Here is what she sent me.
Here are some really easy fun things to do with your sour dough starter, especially when you have too much of it.Natural Yeast Waffles
*note: if you add flour to your starter it will need to sit overnight so the natural yeast can proof(?) again. You can do that, but just know you need to let it sit. (I think in the fridge and not on your counter, but you will have to research that more to be sure.)
1 cup starter
1 tbsp oil or melted butter
1/4 tsp salt
mix eggs, oil and salt. add egg mixture to yeast. gently fold ingredients together until just incorporated. Pour into waffle iron. Enjoy!
You can also make Natural Yeast Pancakes with your starter:
Natural Yeast Pancakes
1 egg1/4 cup milk3 tbsp oil1/4 tsp salt
1 cup starter
1 whisked egg white
Mix up the first 4 ingredients (egg, milk, oil, salt.) Add 1 cup starter. Mix softly and briefly. Fold in a whisked egg white.
Then it says pour into waffle iron, don't know why since they're pancakes... but whatever floats your boat! (You could probably turn these into pancakes or waffles.)
Sour Dough Flap Jacks
You can also just throw the starter itself onto a pan and cook it up in a pinch. Just cook them on medium low (lower than normal pancakes) they cook slowly.
Thank you for stopping by to read this post! Let me know how your waffles, pancakes or flap jacks turn out. Let me know if you tweak the recipe and how it turned out. I have though of adding chocolate chips or bananas to the waffles. (And honestly, I probably will some time.) I would love to read your comments.
