While we love making bread, we don’t love throwing away some of our sourdough starter every time we have to feed it. We have tried using the sourdough discard for everything from pancakes, to tortillas, to english muffins, and you guessed it – waffles! Here’s one of our favorite recipes to make the most of your sourdough starter. 

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter discard
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • Butter & syrup, for serving
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk 1 cup flour, sugar, baking soda and salt until combined.
  2. In a separate medium bowl, whisk eggs and milk until well combined. Whisk in sourdough starter.
  3. Add flour mixture and melted butter; stir until combined. The batter should be the thickness of pancake batter. If mixture is too thin, add a little more flour as necessary.
  4. Cook in heated waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions. Serve with extra butter and maple syrup.
