It's Valentine's week which means everything has to be pink! Sorry to all those people who are repulsed by pink. I'm honestly not a huge fan of Valentine's Day, BUT I do love the colour pink and I'll use any excuse to make pink food.
My partner and I have recently started experimenting with gluten-free sourdough and have a starter bubbling away (we named her Serita). Now with any sourdough starter, there's always lots leftover and rather than throwing it away, why not use it up in other tasty ways!
So, in comes these pretty pink pancakes! Not only are they a great way to use up any extra sourdough starter, but they are also a fun breakfast to make your loved one or yourself (love yo' self hunny) on Valentine's Day.

Sweet or Savoury?
So, I know pancakes are traditionally dressed up sweet (hello maple syrup, fruit and whipped cream) BUT you have to try these savoury! I topped the leftovers I had with garlic aioli, fried egg and little grated parmesan and I loved them even more than with sweet toppings. The savoury toppings complement the beet and sourdough perfectly.
