In the olden days, when our blog was young, I posted a post on how to make waffles. And then… in the year of 2020, we had this crazy thing called lockdown. In the spirit of making the best of an extremely horrible situation, we needed to lift our spirits… and my kids initiated second supper.

Second supper has become a waffle show down around here, when I started making sourdough bread, because yeast simply wasn’t available in the stores anymore… One thing led to another and sour dough waffles where an instant win. So today, on World Waffle Day, according to our calendar… I thought I would post a quick and easy recipe for making waffles, with your sourdough starter.

  • 1.5 cups of water
  • 1.0 cup starter
  • 2.0 cups of flour

  1. Mix the water and starter together in a large bowl.
  2. Add the flour to your mixture.
  3. Add all the other ingredients into the mixture.
  4. Leave to stand for about twenty minutes.
  5. Pop them into your waffle iron one by one and serve piping hot.


Sourdough Pancakes are just as Easy

At this stage you can add any and every topping to your creations, we serve ours hot with cinnamon sugar and occasionally a scoop of ice cream. Everyone has been enjoying these for the last few weeks… something to remember lockdown life by… in years to come.
