Quick Sourdough Waffle Recipe

One thing that I have always wanted to have and maintain is a good sourdough. I just admire the people that can have a 20 year old starter! I want to be one of those crazy people. 🙂

I started a batch 2 weeks ago now almost and she is coming along well. *yes, my sourdough is a she* I would like to see a little more activity but it is bit cold in the house so its understandable that she isn’t getting the rise and fall I want to see. There are still lots of bubbles and a nice ripe smell. I am just going to stick with it a little longer before I start keeping it in the fridge and feeding it weekly.


If you have ever started and fed a sourdough you will know that lots of it gets discarded. When you do this you can make bread with it, give it to friends or a variety of other things. Those other things are what I want to search out. This is the first trial recipe from my sourdough starter. Waffles!! And they were delicious and a great way to use up discarded starter if you don’t just want to toss it. 🙂

Most of the recipes I looked up has you make the batter up the night before, which I will be trying in the future, but I wanted waffles immediately so I made this one with a few changes.

They came out beautifully! Crispy and flavorful. My husband and I both really loved them. It is defiantly added to my list of sourdough wins.

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 TB sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 8 oz sourdough starter, unfed
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 3 TB butter, melted


  1. Add flour, baking powder, sugar and salt to a bowl and mix lightly to mix together.
  2. Separate eggs (you can put the egg yolks in the bowl with the flour and the whites in a separate bowl). Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form and set aside.
  3. Melt butter and set aside. Also, turn on waffle maker to preheat.
  4. Add almond milk, sourdough starter and vanilla to flour and mix until lightly combined. It does not need to be 100% smooth.
  5. Fold in the egg whites as gently as possible. Then fold in the butter.
  6. Once your waffle maker is preheated, measure enough batter to fill the waffle iron and cook as directed.
  7. Keep waffles warm in oven on the lowest temperature that it will go. You don’t want to cook them anymore, just keep them warm and crisp.
