How to make: Sourdough Waffles

How to make sourdough waffles from scratch sounds super complicated but it really is just another way to incorporate fermented foods into your diet and use that starter you have sitting on your counter.

One of the number one requested breakfasts in our house are waffles and one day I just figured why not throw some starter in there.

The best part is that while adding a bit of nutritional value to your waffles the flavor is outstanding. The  tang you will get from the starter in combination with the maple syrup is so delicious. I hope this one becomes a favorite in your house. 

 What You Will Need:

 2 cups fed starter

¼ cup all purpose organic flour

2 tbsp raw honey

¼  cup melted coconut oil

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp ground nutmeg

1 egg

A bit of melted butter to season waffle iron

Directions:

Start by melting the coconut oil.  Combine two cups of fed starter, the flour, honey, coconut oil, nutmeg and the egg. Add the baking soda last. Your batter should be almost foamy and bubbling.

Heat up a waffle iron. Make sure to use a bit of melted butter to generously season between waffles. I like to use a cooking brush to make it easy.

I use a heaping ½ cup measuring cup to scoop each waffle. Using this you will be able to make approximately 6 waffles for this batch. Serve with maple syrup or dress them up by adding a few chocolate chips to the batter. Enjoy!

FAQ

What is fed starter? 

“Fed” starter refers to a sourdough starter that has been given more flour and water approximately 12 hours prior to use. A tip is to take your starter out of the fridge if you know you are going to make these for breakfast and just feed it the night before and let it sit overnight. Honestly I have used starter that was only fed 4 hours prior so it all just depends on the amount of sour taste your going for. 

Can I freeze them?

You can. I have done so a few times since the amount of batter is way too much for just two people. Of course making and having them fresh is preferred. I am no food waster!  Plus I don’t buy prepackaged foods a whole lot so having these in the freezer is a nice option every once in a while.

Just use a one gallon ziplock freezer bag, make sure to push out any air that’s in the bag before folding it over and placing in the freezer to store. When you are ready simply take them out, allow them to thaw and we pop them into our toaster oven but a microwave will likely work too.
