The evening before I will use the "sponge", I mix in one cup flour
and a tsp. of sugar. ALWAYS use non-metallic bowls and spoons. Put in a
In the morning, in a bowl, I place one cup flour, one tsp. sugar, and enough warm water to make into a thick batter. Allow to work while you make bacon (save the drippings!).
When you are ready to make pancakes, place 3/4 tsp baking soda and 1/4 cup water in a small microwavable dish, and nuke for 10 seconds. Quickly add to the batter and stir. Your batter should become light and bubbly, and have a "ring" to it when the bowl is tapped from the side.
Quickly (the chemical reaction doesn't last long!) pour portions of your batter onto a HOT skillet which still has bacon drippings. If you have cran or blue berries, now is the time to add them by hand onto the pancakes.
Turn pancakes when golden brown, and serve hot with butter and syrup (low bush cranberry is the best!).
