I thought there was an error in the recipe. No flour? For pancakes? I was skeptical and almost added flour as other reviews suggested, but I reminded myself of my personal rule for internet recipes -- follow the recipe EXACTLY so I know if the recipe is bad (as opposed to thinking it's bad because my modifications didn't work out). So I did that -- made this exactly as instructed (note that my sourdough starter seemed pretty thin when I used it for this recipe). The pancakes turned out to be quite thin and flag (closer to a crepe than a pancake) with a nice (but mild) sourdough taste. EXACTLY what I was looking for. EXACTLY like the sourdough pancakes we enjoyed when we were growing up in Alaska. These are authentic Alaska Sourdough pancakes. If you don't like that, toss in a little flour to thicken them. They'll turn into a slightly sourdough tasting pancake that is also wonderful (I did that after putting the first THIN one in the skillet for a "test pancake"). After I added some flour (not much!), my husband and I both agreed that the original thin pancake (this recipe EXACTLY) was far more authentic and far more delicious. Either way (with added flour or as written), this recipe makes a nice pancake (delicious!!). Just make it as YOU like it. :)
