SOURDOUGH WAFFLES

Spoil your family with these delicious Sourdough Waffles!

 

These waffles made with sourdough starter are so good. You can add nuts, fruit, and berries to the sourdough mix to make them even better. Very versatile and absolutely delicious. You could also add chocolate chips too. My family has loved sourdough for years and we make all kinds of fun things with it. If you love these you may love our Sourdough Pancakes!

  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?

    1. 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?

    1. Hi Nora, The next morning when you add your eggs and baking soda. Sorry about that. I have corrected the recipe. Have a great day and thank you for bringing this to my attention.

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

      1. Thank you! I thought so but wanted to make sure.

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

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