Sourdough Waffles

Any excuse to use the new waffle maker and have waffles for breakfast :) The excuse: sourdough!

So… various recipes were researched for this this:

I wanted to rely on the sourdough for leavening, so I ended up with:

  • 1 cup refreshed rye sourdough
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Mix that lot up, shove in the fridge overnight, and make into waffles in the morning!

I took the batter out about 15 minutes before using it. I was a little worried initially that it didn’t seem very active, but after a few minutes at room temperature and a stir I saw it bubbling away.


As with the previous batch of waffles a roughly 90ml ladle made each waffle, and I cooked them for four minutes. The only difference was that I sprayed the waffle plates before cooking, as there is much less oil in this recipe.


To be honest they look like they could have done with a little more batter, and another 30 seconds cooking — however I needed to get the next batch on! We served as a sandwich of bacon medallions, scrambled eggs and maple syrup.

I’m quite impressed how well the recipe worked given I just threw it together from those other recipes. The only obvious change to make it to reduce the amounts by half, as there’s enough batter for at least another 4 waffles. I suppose I might look at keeping 1 cup of sourdough and reducing the amount of milk to give and even richer rye sourdough taste.

  1. It’s a terrible measure… but so many sites I get recipes from are US sties… and it’s starting to affect me!
