Last Saturday night, while talking to my MIL on the phone, somehow we got on the subject of sourdough pancakes and waffles.One of my husbands friends had recently given him a brand new Oster Waffle Maker for me. I immediately tested it out the following weekend on a batch of waffles made with the recipe on a box of pancake mix.They turned out really good. I was very impressed with the waffle maker. This being the first time I have ever used one. I didn't know what to expect.
So when I was talking to my MIL on the phone I told her I would make her sourdough waffles on Sunday morning if she wanted to come over.All I needed was to find a recipe.
So off to Google I go and type in sourdough waffles.
One of the first websites that comes up is for King Arthur Flour Sourdough Waffles or Pancakes
I should have known I would find a recipe there. I have made a few of the recipes posted on the King Arthur Baking Banter blog. All of the recipes I try always turn out awesome. One of my favorites is for Gordita's. You can find that recipe here.
So, when I cook breakfast it is like cooking for the army. I have a LARGE family. Between my house, my daughters house and my sons house I am cooking for and serving 11 people, big and small. Add the MIL and that's twelve for breakfast.So that's a lot of waffles. I made up one batch of the sourdough and one batch with boxed pancake mix. Not everyone loves sourdough like I do. Crazy huh??Begin the recipe the night before by mixing up your sponge.Overnight sponge.
- To make the overnight sponge, stir down your refrigerated starter, and remove 1 cup.
- In a large mixing bowl, stir together the 1 cup starter, flour, sugar, and buttermilk.
- Cover and let rest at room temperature overnight.
- In a small bowl or mixing cup, beat together the eggs, and oil or butter. Add to the overnight sponge.
- Add the salt and baking soda, stirring to combine. The batter will bubble.
- Pour batter onto your preheated, greased waffle iron, and bake according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- Serve waffles immediately, to ensure crispness. Or hold in a warm oven till ready to serve.
We had plain sourdough waffles, blueberry sourdough waffles, regular waffles and sourdough waffles with whipped cream and strawberry jam.
They all turned out great. I know because as the cook I had to sample each one.
I'm think banana sourdough waffles the next time.
I didn't get a picture of the blueberry waffles because they didn't last long enough for me to get a picture.
My family makes fun of me as it is each time I cook something and they have to wait to eat for me to take a picture.
