Sourdough Waffles

In the wise words of Leslie Knope “We need to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.”

Leslie Knope is fantastic and she is a wise ( and fictional) women. These waffles are easy to put together, and as I posted yesterday I loved to put a savoury twist on most things. I like to top my waffles with cheese, green onion, bacon, hot sauce and maple syrup (cause Canada).

You do need a waffle maker for this, but waffle makers are the best because you can make a lot of things into a waffle, leftover mashed potatoes, cinnamon buns, tater tots. I could go on, but i'll save it for another blog. I feel another blog post coming on just for that.

Yes my love for all things sourdough continues. These waffles are a ray of sunshine, so you should probably make them.

Sourdough Waffles

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces (1 cup) all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 ounces (by weight) sourdough starter
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Method

  1. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk until well combined.

  2. In separate medium bowl, whisk eggs and milk until combined. Add sourdough starter and whisk until completely blended. Add flour mixture and butter and stir until combined. Depending on thickness of starter, you might need to adjust batter. It should be the consistency of pancake batter. Add flour or milk as needed to reach that consistency.

  3. Cook in waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.
