It's finally sourdough time for me. I've got some refreshed starter and am ready to churn out some pizza dough and Cheeseboard Collective Zampanos. And I have enough leftover for some pancakes. Anyone have a good recipe? Preferably one that doesn't need an overnight sit? Thanks in advance. Also any other interesting sourdough recipes would be appreciated!
Well, I got this recipe for waffles from a thread here on Chowhound (can't remember the poster). They are really good and could probably be converted into yummy pancakes. Since you already have the starter you probably might not need to do the overnight step. They were amazingly crispy.
Good Night Waffles
1/2 cup lukewarm water 105°F
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
2-1/4 tsp. active dry yeast (one packet)
2 cups whole milk, warmed to 105°F
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled until tepid
1 tsp. salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, beaten lightly
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking soda
The Night Before or at least 8 hours before baking, combine the warm water, sugar and yeast. Let stand 10 minutes, until foamy. Stir in warm milk, melted butter and salt. Beat in flour until smooth; use a hand mixer on low speed. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let sit on the counter overnight. DO NOT REFRIGERATE.
In the morning, preheat your Waring Pro Belgian Waffle Maker on setting #4. While it is heating, stir eggs, vanilla and baking soda into the batter. Pour onto waffle grids. Close cover, rotate 180° to right; bake until it beeps, rotate 180° to the left. Remove when indicated, repeat with remaining batter. Waffles may be kept warm in a slow oven 200°F on a rack on a cookie sheet (makes six Belgian waffles) *Note: These waffles have a sourdough flavor which is surprising at first, but they are really wonderful with sweet toppings like powdered sugar, jam, syrup, or apple butter.
Gee, I don't have a Waring Pro Belgian Waffle Maker. I hate it when that happens! :-( I have a 60's Looney Tune Waffle Maker. It's Sylvester's head on the outside and when you open him up Tweety Bird's inside his mouth. Poor Tweety. The kids eat dozens of him when ever they can.
I mean they don't even know who Sylvester and Tweety Bird are. They get the joke though. :-)
Happy Thanksgiving, Roberto
Thanks. Not only do I not have the Waring Pro, but I have no iron to speak of whatsoever. Thanks for the link. I see one recipe for pancakes. Do you agree that it is pretty much standard? Thanks again!
Yeah, I know, I don't have a Waring Pro either-- I think the point of specifying the WP is that it takes a lot more batter than your regular old Loony Tunes waffle maker. I should probably take that part out-- just copied it from C-hound right into my recipe file.
