Sourdough Discard Pancakes

I have been making the sourdough starter and I have been discarding some each time and knew I could use it to make something, I decided to make some pancakes like I would if I made it with the sourdough starter. They turned out so good, everyone loved them and they are so easy to make, I use vanilla and cinnamon in the recipe and it gives that something extra. These pancakes are very light they don't feel heavy after eating them. They are a definite favorite at our house. I get my liquid ingredients mixed together and then I sift my dry ingredients together and add to the wet ingredients. Whisk together until lump free. Pour about a 1/2 cup onto your hot skillet and turn when it browns on one side. Cook until the other side is browned.

They really are light and tasty.
