Basic Sourdough Pancake by Nancy Tay

Pancake made from sourdough starter is fluffy and yummy. Presenting - Almond Sourdough Pancakes (I've added some ground almond). Love these pancakes and I will not make them other ways. Prepare the batter the night before sleeping, next morning, add an egg and baking soda and they are ready to be sizzled on the frying pan! This pancake tastes a little tangy.

Sourdough is a “natural leavener”. It is the result from the fermentation of wild yeast in the flour and beneficial bacteria. The yeasts are primarily responsible for the leavening and texture and the bacteria for the sourdough flavour.

To make almond pancake batter, add 20g ground almond and reduce the flour amount by 20g
