We've passed on our sourdough starter to many a friend. And many have wanted to know how to turn their precious "sludge" into hotcakes (or bread, or anything else yummy and sourdough related). Here it is for everyone out there carrying on the Saturday morning tradition of yummy sourdough hotcakes.
The night before:
Add 2 cups water and 2 cups flour to your "sludge".
Let sit out overnight at room temperature (the longer the better)
The morning of:
Take out a dollop of sludge to go back into fridge for next time.
Add 1 egg, 1 tsp. salt, 1 Tbs. sugar, 1/3 c. oil, stir.
Mix 2-3 tsp. of baking soda in a little bit of water, add.
