A sourdough starter isn't just for making loaves of bread,
In a large bowl, whisk the sourdough starter, egg, milk, melted butter and vanilla pod seeds until a thick but fluffy batter has formed.
Next whisk in the flour, baking soda and sugar making sure that no lumps form.
Brush your pan with a little oil.
Pour roughly an eighth of the mix into your pan (see note 1) and cook for 2-3 minutes or until bubbles start to appear on the top side of the pancake and set.
Flip and then cook for another 2 minutes or until the pancake is cooked through.
Repeat until all of the mix has been used.
Serve with your choice of fruit and syrup.
Wonder how I manage to get perfectly round, equally sized pancakes every time? I use an ice cream scoop! It's the perfect way to measure out your pancake batter and pour into your pan.
