In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
Next, crack the eggs into a medium-sized bowl and beat lightly.
Add the sourdough starter and mix well.
Next, add the milk.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix, but do NOT over-mix! A few lumps are o.k.
Set the timer for 10 minutes. Melt the butter while you are waiting.
When the timer goes off, add the melted butter.
Waffles: Follow the manufacturers instructions of your waffle maker. For my ceramic waffle maker, I set the timer for 5 minutes and have my waffle iron set to medium. Makes 5.
Pancakes: Put only a small amount of butter in the pan. I use my non-power burner at a 4, but your stove may be different. Makes about 15-20 depending on the size. (We like small pancakes in our house.)
