Feed Me! Taking Care of your Sourdough Starter, plus Egg-Free Pancakes

Craving a loaf of sourdough bread? Make it yourself if you have a Sourdough Starter. Learn how to take care of your starter to keep it healthy in this post. And get a bonus sourdough starter pancake recipe too!

I am away on vacation this week but I prepared a quick post for you today about sourdough starters. Before you can make a sourdough bread, you will need to get your hands on a sourdough starter. You can totally make your own starter at home if no one has any to spare (see resource list below). And just like your kids, you have to feed your starter regularly to keep it alive! No one wants a dead starter on their hands 😉

Lately I have being playing around with a sourdough starter given to me by my friend Karyn this fall to make sourdough bread. Here is my basic recipe.
