Sourdough Waffles

  • Prep Time
    5 Minutes
  • Total Time
    45 Minutes
  • Difficulty
  • Servings
  • ½ cup leftover starter (100% hydration, meaning it is equal weight water and flour)
  • 1 cup milk or almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp Mike's Hot Honey
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
For serving
  • 2 large bananas
  • Mike’s Hot Honey for drizzling
  • Greek yogurt or whipped cream

In a medium bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk until everything is thoroughly mixed.

Crack the egg into another medium bowl, then whisk it well. Add the milk, starter, Mike's Hot Honey and whisk gently to break up the starter until combined, little lumps are okay. Do not whisk vigorously, as intense stirring activates gluten and the waffles will be tough. Stir in the melted butter then set the batter aside for 15-20 minutes.

After the batter has rested, preheat your waffle iron. Once the waffle iron is hot, grease it lightly, then ladle some batter in. Do not fill the iron fully with batter – as the batter expands during cooking, it can run over the sides of your waffle maker. Cook each waffle for a few minutes, until golden and crispy. Enjoy right away with a few slices of banana, Greek yogurt, and a drizzle of hot honey.
