sourdough pancake with caramel irish cream sauce

sourdough pancake with caramel irish cream sauce

I’m 22 years old and I’m starting my Sourdough Starter! Hoorah for that! So basically, sourdough starter is a wild yeast, its sour and has a weird, but nice smells once you’re using it in a baked goods. I started mine five days ago and sure I will keep feeding it forever and passing it to my future daughter when I die. Okay, too much future talking. After 5 days of starting and the sourdough has finally ready. Its all bubbly and frothy with strong fermented smell, just like alcohol. I used the first ¼ cup for sourdough pancake. Remember, that sourdough pancake is not your usual light and fluffy pancake. Sourdough pancakes are dense and chewy and that tangy taste from the sourdough is very addictive.

I paired the pancake with caramel Irish cream sauce, because I’m in the mood for caramel sauce. But the pancake is just wonderful by itself, okay, well, maybe a tablespoon of butter on top and a drizzle of maple syrup would be wonderful also.

Good luck with your sourdough starter Hun - I'm 34 with two failed sourdough starters under my belt ;0( so I'm interested to see how you go.

We made sourdough pancakes once and really enjoyed. With an Irish cream caramel sauce, that'd be even better. Possibly even something make for dessert.
