Sourdough pancakes

The experiment to raise my own sourdough is ongoing. My first trial failed but in the second I have great hopes. The excess of the sourdough remaining form the feedings and considered "to be thrown away" I kept it in the fridge to use it for other recipes. Simply I cannot stand the idea of throwing it away. So, here is a recipe of pancakes with sourdough (not mature enough yet). The sourdough play here a role in taste so it doesn't show the raising properties.
The pancakes are very thin, without big holes (I like this because I hate seeing the filling going out through them) and they are very delicious !

Ingredients (for a bigger quantity of pancakes, ~20-30)
  • 240g sourdough (100% hydration) taken straight from the fridge
  • 960g milk
  • 240g all purpose flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • oil for the pan

  1. Beat the eggs in a bigger bowl.
  2. Add the sourdough, milk, four and salt and mix them all well.
  3. Let it rest for 1-2 hours.
  4. Heat the pans ( I use 2 to speed up the process).
  5. Oil them just a bit and pour 1/2 cup of the mixture.
  6. Turn them over when they have caught some brown spots on one side.
I chose to fill them with strawberry jam  made by my mother with her own crop of last year.

This is a recipe with which you can easily play. For example, another time I have used 500g of sourdough and 720ml of milk, keeping the same quantities for the rest of ingredients. In the end, it is essential to obtain a mixture that looks like a heavy cream.
