a couple of cups of flour, and warm water, and set in a warm place until

much!) while the griddle is heating, adding:
1/4 cup dry skim milk 1/3 cup melted shortening
2 tsps. salt 2 eggs, beaten
2 tsps. sugar 1 tsp. baking soda

1 cup sourdough starter 3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sifted flour (scant) 2 tsps. sugar
Beat egg, add milk and starter. Sift flour and dry ingredients.

good sourdough taste, and are easy to make (no over night batter).
