Recipe by Marjorie M. Bishoip, Corvallis OR.
This is my favorite Sourdough Hotcake Recipe. Add/replace Citrus Salt for regular salt for a more sour flavor.
Copied from "The Oregonian" newspaper.
Mix about a Tablespoon of water in the baking soda and add to mixture just before making pancakes..makes them really light and the batter bubblier.
