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

How to cook


12 tbsp butter

Melt the butter.


1 1/2 tbsp Sugar

Add the sugar. Stir until dissolved.


2 cups milk

Stir in the milk. Warm this mixture of butter, sugar and milk to around body temperature. Then transfer to a mixing bowl.


3 eggs

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.


1 cup sourdough starter

Mix up your sourdough starter and then stir 1 cup of starter into the batter.


1 tsp vanilla

Whisk in the vanilla.


1 pinch of salt

Whisk in the salt.


2 cup flour

Whisk in the sugar. Stir in the flour until fully mixed.


Cover and proof

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.


Hella butter

Lube up your waffle iron.


Make some waffles.

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


Smother in butter and maple syrup.

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.
