Traditional Sourdough Pancakes are a great way to use up excess sourdough starter. They require just sourdough starter, flour, eggs, salt and baking soda. Serve them with fruit, yogurt, maple syrup or honey.
NYT Cooking: If you have a sourdough starter, you will need to feed it to keep it alive. Many recipes call for doing so after discarding a cup or so of the starter you have, so as to maintain its equilibrium and prevent it from growing too large. This recipe takes advantage of that excess starter, using it as the base of a pancake or waffle batter that ferments overnight and yields a remarkably flavorful breakfast the next day, with minimal effort.
