Sourdough Pancake

What can I do with the discard starter??? I goggled and found Lizzy's blog. She has a recipe for using sourdough starter for her pancake and from her photos, the pancakes do look fluffy and soft.  So I followed her recipe and true enough, the pancake was not a disappointment.  And the wonderful thing is the discard starter is not a waste after all. There are lots of goodies we can do with it, which I will be sharing from now on to those who loves eating sourdough bread.  This is a keeper and I have made this pancake many times since I have started my own sourdough starter.  Great breakfast food. Healthy and sourdough is good for our digestive system. Sourdough can help regulate blood sugar levels which helps ward off diabetes. Sourdough is also a prebiotic, which helps to support the gut micobiome. A lot of goodness eating sourdough bread.
