There's a lot you can do with a sourdough starter. Bread obviously, but biscuits, pancakes, i even made a short crust once and made some killer sourdough pasties. But waffles, man, waffles are by far my favorite sourdough application. Sweet and sour. Maple syrup and sourdough are a wonderful combo.

What you will need

12 tbsp (170g) butter

1 1/2 tbsp (30g) sugar

2 cups (500ml) milk

3 eggs

1 cup sourdough starter

1 tsp vanilla

1 pinch salt

2 cup AP flour

Extra butter for lube

Whisk the three eggs into the warm milk. Work quickly. If your milk is too hot, or the eggs sit in the milk too long, they will start to cook.

Let the batter sit, lightly covered at room temp for a couple of hours. Then, cover it and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, it should be thickened slightly, and a little bubbly.

These cook kinda slow, so you should give them a solid 10-15 minutes in the iron.

When they're nice and toasty, load them up with butter and syrup. Grade A maple syrup is highly recommended. The combination of maple and sourdough is magical.
