First things first

It's match day (COYS!) and that means a sensible breakfast is in order before we go hit our local. Today it's sourdough johnny cakes. I started with Simply Homemaking’s recipe but tweaked as follows:
1/2 C 100% rye sourdough starter*
1 egg
3/4 C whole milk (cow’s)
1t salt
1 C corn meal
2 t baking soda
2T sugar
2T maple syrup
2T melted bacon fat

*I don’t pay much attention to the hydration of my starter; when I feed it I don’t measure anything. I just add some rye flour & water and give it a good stir. I’d say it generally has the consistency of muffin batter: thick yet pourable.

They were tasty, really tasty!
