Sourdough pancakes - oh, my word, how delicious!  I used around 100 mls starter, a little more (by volume) skimmed milk. about 150g plain flour and a pinch of salt which I whisked together.  I had a really black banana which previously I'd have thrown away but not now.  It was soft and luscious inside and I mashed it up and used it instead of an egg in the pancake mix.  Waste not . . .
I brushed my non stick pan with oil (yes, I did miss using butter but . . . ) and cooked the pancakes.  I served two of them folded over with pineapple inside and natural yogurt drizzled over.  Very filling and absolutely scrummy, even without the butter!
It made seven at (under) 4p a pancake.  A slightly rough working out, perhaps a little overestimated and next time I will measure carefully.
