    This is a really fantabulous recipe!

    Unfortunately, you cannot wake up one morning and decide to have some – you have to have made the batter the night before.

    But these are GREAT pancakes! And sooo worth the effort. And the wait… 😉

    We finally made these today. Yes, they were as good as we remembered. So the sourdough starter has been fed and is now doing it’s thing.

    Oh, and this recipe made us 13 pancakes – the first two were a bit too large to flip properly, so the remainder were about 6 inches or so in diameter.

    Does anyone else like to make peanut butter sandwiches from left over pancakes? 😉

  3. 6-8

    Yes on the peanut butter / pancake sandwiches. I add sliced bananas – amazing!
