Pancakes from the Pet in the Jar

Note: A key ingredient in this recipe is sourdough. Go meet Herbert.

Sourdough Potato Pancakes

Get your sourdough out and feed it the night before. It should be the texture of stirred sour cream. If it's low, feed it for a couple of days ahead of time. You'll need 2 cups of good active sourdough for this recipe.

In addition to your sourdough, will need:
  • 1/2 cup cold mashed potatoes (cooled is fine)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp melted butter or oil
  • 1 1/3 cups self-rising flour OR 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour and 1tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda, dissolved in a little bit of warm water

Mix the potatoes, sourdough, milk, eggs, sugar and salt thoroughly until creamy. Add the flour (or flour and baking powder). Mix until incorporated. Grease the pan and heat until hot.

When the griddle is hot, add the soda/water and stir well. IMMEDIATELY begin cooking pancakes. Serve as they come off the griddle, with your favorite pancake treatment.

Feeds 3-6 people, depending on level of hunger. Number pancakes depends on size of cakes you make.
