I recently bought a stovetop cast-iron waffle iron from Rome Industries, and I have been having so much fun making beautiful crispy sourdough waffles. This is a delicious way to use up your sourdough starter. Because the flour is fermented, most anti-nutrients are eliminated and digestibility is greatly improved. And did I mention it’s delicious?
2 cups sourdough starter
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp baking powder
A few dashes cinnamon (optional)
Mix all ingredients together and make waffles according to instructions for your waffle iron.
If using the cast-iron waffle iron from Rome Industries, heat both halves of the iron on medium-low heat for 3 minutes. Rub both sides generously with butter. Add 1/3 cup of batter, and cook on medium-low heat for 2 and a half minutes on each side. You will have to experiment a bit to see what the best cooking times are for your stove.
Serve and enjoy! I love to eat these crispy waffles with sour cream and a bit of maple syrup or jam.
