Chilebrown at home

There is nothing like laying a foundation of Sourdough Pancakes in your stomach to start the day. I eat three or four and my stomach expands to Homer Simpson proportions. I also include another food group to this meal. Of course, the food group is named Bacon. Today's bacon just happens to be Nueske's bacon. It is the smoke bomb extravaganza. I take these two ingredients and put a huge slab of butter and drown them in Pure Maple Syrup. It is a simple guilty pleasure. Man, Oh Man!, I am going to take a nap before I have to get up to start lunch.

Sourdough Pancakes
  1. 1 cup of sourdough starter
  2. 1 cup of water
  3. 1 cup of flour
  4. 1 tablespoon sugar
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  7. 1 tablespoon oil
  8. 1 large egg

Take the starter, flour and water and mix together. Let sit covered on counter overnight. The next morning add remaining ingredients. Mix everything well. Cook on hot oiled griddle.

What hydration do you keep your starter at?

I usually keep it equal parts flour and water. I store it in the refrigerator and try to use it every two weeks. If not, it gets fed. It is pretty forgiving. Thanks for asking Ryan.
