Recipe: Sourdough Waffles

Here's another sourdough recipe - sorry to those of you who aren't sourdough fans.

We've come to love these waffles. It took my kids a few tries to get used to having the sourdough flavor be in their waffles but they eat them right up now. As for me, I love the taste and smell of these 100 times more than compared to the waffles we used to make.

Here's the recipe:

Sourdough Waffles
(makes 12 waffles)

Step One:

(first recipe we used)
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup kefir, yogurt or buttermilk
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup starter
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sucanat/rapadura

(recent version we always use - it's simpler and creates very light and fluffy waffles)
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup kefir or yogurt
1 cup luke warm water
1 cup starter
1 1/4 tsp sea salt
few drops liquid stevia

Step Two:
3 cups whole wheat flour

Step Three:
4 eggs
1/2 tsp baking soda

1. Combine all of "Step One" ingredients.

2. Mix in the ingredient from "Step Two".

3. Allow to sit out, covered, overnight or up to 12-24 hours.

* * the next morning * *

4. (Turn on your waffle iron.) Mix in the eggs until well incorporated.

5. Add the baking soda and let sit a couple of minutes.

6. Place 1/2 cup of the waffle batter onto (buttered) waffle iron.

We like to top our waffles with a peach or strawberry fruit "syrup" or with pure maple syrup.

If, for whatever reason, you don't get around to making the waffles in the morning remember that you can place the batter into the fridge to slow down the leavening process - make the waffles the following night or the next morning instead.

Here's why I make sourdough breads.
