    Sour Dough Pancakes
    1 cup whole wheat flour, unsifted
    1/4 cup fresh milk
    1/4 cup oil
    1 cup all-purpose flour, unsifted
    2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
    1/2 cup sourdough starter batter, at room temperature

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sourdough starter batter, and buttermilk; beat until blended. Cover and let stand at room temperature for about 45 minutes (or cover and refrigerated overnight),.
    Beat together the eggs, milk, and oil. Add this to the flour mixture and stir in.
    (NOTE: For waffles, increase the salad oil to 1/3 cup).
    Combine sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter, then let stand for about 5 minutes.
    Get your pancake griddle or waffle iron ready to go. Coat lightly with melted butter or margarine.

    False
  • RE: Recipes using Sourdough starter
    1-1/2 cups warm water (about 110 degrees F)
    4 cups to 4-1/2 cups bread flour, unsifted
    1/2 cup sourdough starter batter at room temperature
    1 pkg. active dry yeast
    2 Tablespoons olive oil
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon dried basil or oregano
    2 salt
    2 teaspoons granulated sugar
    2 - 14 inch diameter pizza pans

    In a large mixing bowl, combine water, sourdough starter, dry yeast and 2 cups of the flour. Mix well and cover with clear plastic wrap and let stand in a warm place (85 degrees F) 1/2 to 1 hour.
    Stir in salt, sugar, garlic powder, dried basil or oregano, olive oil, and enough of the remaining flour (about 2 cups) to form a smooth and elastic dough. Knead until smooth. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (2 to 2-1/2 hours).
    Punch down and place the pizza dough onto a lightly floured bread board or kitchen counter. Divide the pizza dough in half, cover and let them rest for 10 minutes. Form the first half of the dough into a 14 inch diameter pizza pan. Repeat the process with rest of the dough batch. This recipe will make 2 - 14 inch diameter pizza crusts. For a thicker crust, let the pizza dough rise about 30 minutes, covered, before adding toppings and baking it in the oven on 425 for 20 minutes.
