Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen invited us to share breakfast bread recipes that contain sourdough or yeast.  Let's see what everyone served up.......

#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. Follow our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated each month on this home page.  We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient.

Sourdough Crepes

I decided to make some crepes starting with my sourdough discard when I fed my starter.  I liked this recipe because you could make your crepes right away instead of letting the batter sit overnight.

Once your crepes are made you can add any filling you like.  We eat crepes quite often around here.  We like them both sweet and savory.  Breakfast crepes are most often sweet like these Palacsinta topped with berries and powdered sugar.  These lemongrass crepes filled with gingered blueberries were delicious.  These crepes filled with dark cherries made a perfect breakfast as did these mixed berry crepes with blueberry syrup.

This was my first time making crepes using sourdough but they turned out well.  I will probably make them again as I am always looking for ways to use my sourdough discard.  These crepes would work as well savory as they did sweet.  I filled them with a mixture of cream cheese and blueberries that I pureed in the food processor.
