A crispy outside with thick softness within – my family won’t stop enjoying them every week! The fact that this recipe is simple to remember and asks for minimal amounts of perishables makes it great for camp-outs or fund-raising breakfasts. This recipe is from a friend who used it to make fantastic pancakes: Thanks Mr. Hannula!

  • 1 cup sourdough starter
