My jar of sourdough discards is close to capacity, so it’s time to use up some of the Monster Mash with a yummy weekend breakfast of pancakes topped with buttery caramel apple slices.
My old sourdough is mostly lievito madre, and once it’s a certain age, it’s sometimes difficult to dissolve. I don’t bother with a whisk and just use the blender to make the pancake batter.
- 200g sourdough discards
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda (cuts the acidity and gives some lift)
- milk (the amount depends on the hydration of your discards. with the lievito madre, it’s about a cup / 240g)
- 150g flour
- a bit of vanilla or cinnamon if you like
Mix everything into a pourable batter and bake pancakes, turning them once the top side starts to bubble. I had my batter really thin, but the pancakes puff up a lot.
For the topping, slice up an apple and melt a bit of butter in a pan. Add some brown sugar, a bit of vanilla and cinnamon, and cook the apple slices in the caramel until they start to soften.
Top the pancakes with the pieces of apple and then drizzle some of the buttery caramel over it.
