I have never made a sourdough pancake like this one before. This is the real Alaska McCoy of pancakes. The recipe is very simple, and the success of the finished product depends somewhat on a sense of mastery over the heat of your griddle or frying pan.

I will share a photo journey in the grasping of that mastery; something I think is important in food blogging. While bloggers do want folks to read the recipes and look at the photos of beautiful food, blogging is also a great way to share information.
But the truth is not all of these photos, are of beautiful food........no, most are what I call "real life" food!

makes 7-8 medium sized pancakes
Cooks Wisdom: Starter (only) pancakes are very tangy pancakes.
1 1/2 c sourdough
flour if needed - see note below
4 T oil
4 T sugar
1 t soda
2 t water
oil for frying - we used coconut oil
Note: I tend to keep my sourdough a bit on the wet side. In this way, I can add a bit of flour 2 or 3 times a week to keep the action working. Being a small family, we don't bake as much or as often as a larger family would. Therefore my sourdough pancake batter will have a bit of flour added.
In a large bowl, mix sourdough, flour if needed, oil, sugar, and egg together, beat well. In a small bowl, mix soda and water, set aside.
Begin heating griddle or frying pan on medium heat. When hot (but NOT too hot) add the soda water mixture to batter, gently fold the soda mixture in, do not over mix.
The following is a pictorial on pancake "baking" vs "frying".
