“If you don't have time to make traditional sourdough bread, this Zaar recipe that I adopted is perfect for using up your starter. I prepared the recipe and was pleasantly surprised by the taste of the pancakes. The recipe makes a super thin batter that results in a light pancake with a subtle sourdough taste. Because the batter is so thin, the pancakes cook very quickly making this perfect for those rushed, hectic mornings. My family and I really enjoyed these topped with my recipe for Hot Spiced Fruit Hot Spiced Fruit. Don't have any sourdough starter? I highly recommend using Sourdough Starter Sourdough bread and starter by Janice Boice.”
