Crunchy and golden on the outside, soft and fluffy in the middle, these easy sourdough waffles are the perfect classic breakfast dish when you have a sourdough starter on hand!
- 1 cup sourdough starter or discard
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Waffle toppings, such as syrup, butter, jam, or fresh berries
- Preheat your waffle iron as directed.
- In a medium mixing bowl, add the sourdough starter, milk, oil, sugar, and eggs. Mix well to fully incorporate all of the ingredients together.
- Add the flour and baking soda, and stir until combined. Adjust the flour or milk as needed to get the right consistency. It should be as thick as a traditional waffle or pancake batter, and your starter will play a role in the consistency.
- Pour the batter into your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s directions.
- When the waffle is done cooking, carefully place it on a wire rack to cool, taking care not to stack the waffles on top of each other. Repeat with remaining batter.
- Serve waffles hot with your favorite topping, such as buttermilk syrup, fruit, or whipped cream.
- This recipe is really easy to scale up if you’d like to make a larger batch of waffles. They freeze very well and heat in a toaster nicely.
- Feel free to adjust the flour or milk as needed to get a smoother batter; your starter or discard will influence the initial texture.
