It's so FLUFFY!

I continue to use my Azure Standard Wild Yeast Sourdough Mix in a number of things. This last weekend  it was another version of pancakes, but a much fluffier version than the flour free recipe made a couple of weeks ago.  These were incredibly light and fluffy, and though they used a bit of white flour, they still had a nice dose of nutrients and probiotics from the whole wheat sourdough.

In a cereal bowl mix 1/2 cup milk and 1 tablespoon Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
Let sit 10 minutes
In a separate bowl mix:
2 Tablespoons of sugar
3/4 cup white flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

In a larger bowl mix

1/2 cup Azures Standard wild yeast whole wheat sourdough starter
1 egg
dash of vanilla extract
the curdled milk mixture
2 Tablespoons of butter, melted.

Mix wet into dry ingredients, blending, just until mixed.  Batter should be fairly thick, depending on your sourdough mixture, just enough to drop on the griddle with a spoon and spread out only slightly. If it is runny, add 2-3 Tablespoons more flour, if it is too thick, add a Tablespoon of milk.  Cook on an oiled griddle set to medium heat.
Although I normally don't use products with ingredients that are more man made than nature made, I will make an exception for syrup.  Maple Grove Farms makes a great low calorie (12 calories per serving) maple flavored syrup that has NO funky aftertaste.  It's the best diet syrup I've tried and it's not expensive either.
