Sourdough Waffles - CopyThese waffles made with sourdough starter are so good. You can add nuts, fruit, and berries to the sourdough mix to make them even better.

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 cup milk
1 cup sourdough starter (recipe for sourdough starter)
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Melt butter in milk in microwave.  Allow to sit and cool. Stir together sourdough starter, salt, brown sugar, and flour,  then add cooled butter and milk and stir well.  Cover bowl and let sit overnight.  Next morning add 2 eggs and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, cinnamon and vanilla and stir again.  Spray and heat waffle iron.  I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup for each waffle. Add your favorite syrup, honey, or molasses for a real treat.  Makes about 8 or 9 waffles.   Enjoy!

  1. My wife and I have made these waffles a few times. Definitely the best flavored waffles I’ve ever had, pretty amazing actually. The only issue we have with these is that they’re very flimsy. We’ve tried the waffle iron at different temps but that doesn’t seem to work. Do you get somewhat flimsy and soft waffles, too? Is there a way to make them with a subtle crunch on the outside and still soft in the middle?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      It could be a difference in the waffle iron but I don’t have any problem with them. Anytime, I make waffles, I just keep on cooking them if I want them to be more crisp.

  2. My Dad, a Montana sheep herder in his youth, used sourdough for bread, biscuits, and pancakes while living in a sheepwagon on the prairies. Later he made wonderful sourdough pancakes for his family. I am looking for a recipe for the pancakes, anyone have a good one?

  3. Barbara Ferrington says:

    If I forget to make bread for a couple of days and don’t feed my starter, do I have to throw it out and start over or can I feed it and bring it back?

  4. My family loves this recipe! I double the recipe and freeze a bunch for easy breakfasts during the week!

  5. Hi Judy, when I was young my mother used to make Sour Dough pancakes. Have you ever had them or heard of them? If so do you have a recipe?

  6. When and where should I add cinnamon and vanilla?

  7. You say “Cover bowl and let sit overnight.” Do you let it sit on the counter or in the refrigerator?

  8. Delicious! I have yet to try a sourdough starter, but using it in waffles sounds delicious!

  9. This makes me want to run out and buy a waffle maker.

  10. That sourdough starter keeps popping up… I’ve got to get in the kitchen and make some!

  11. These sound heavenly. I really need to get myself a waffle maker! (Now!)
