Waking-Up to the Smell of Maple Bacon on a Cool Autumn Morning... Can You Say YUM??

Its early on a Saturday morning the roosters crowed and the sun has just begun to rise over the horizon. The coffee begins to perk and bacon sizzling -what could be more fun than surprising the whole family with mouth watering Klondike style sourdough pancakes. Warming a little maple syrup on the stove will drag even the deepest sleepers from slumber to find the Klondike style sourdough pancakes covered in warm maple syrup you are about to take all the credit for.

Make the yeast sponge first

  1. Prepare and combine 1 cup starter, 1 cup warm kefir w/ yeast, 1 cup flour.
  2. Let it rise for up to 12 hrs prior or overnight.
  3. Combine and whisk together 1 large grade A egg, 2 Tb sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  4. Combine yeast sponge and egg mixture with 1 tsp baking soda. Some lumps are ok if you like a light and fluffy pancake.
  5. Cook over medium heat on a griddle or other evenly heated cook surface. When edges and top form solid bubbles its ready to flip.
  6. If you smell it flip it its likely to late or maybe the flame is to high. If your timing is just right and its golden brown with the perfect chew. That's a perfect Klondike style Flap-Jack.
  7. Try adding fresh blueberries or even bananas and chocolate chunks to add fun and variety to your recipe.

"the best gift is breakfast in bed"

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tb sugar

As this video demonstrates how the same batter cooked at similar temperatures in different ways gives the pancake its unique texture. If there is a certain way you like your pancake to look try these methods.
