Sourdough Hotcakes

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.

This brings back memories when the girls were small and I made all our bread, yogurt, etc from scratch. I had the best sourdough starter and over time slowly switched it to 100% WW flour. We'd take it with us when we traveled and use it all over the country. But alas, we ere gone once for 6 weeks and when we came back it was all red & green with wierd molds....I was sad to let it go. My family liked the sourdough pancakes & biscuits best but I loved it to top cobblers too.
