The Best Sourdough Waffles
If you love waffles, this sourdough whole wheat waffle recipe for you. Even if you don’t love waffles, I can almost guarantee you will love these. This recipe is one I am super proud of – it took a long time to perfect and I haven’t had anyone complain. There is a reason I named these the best sourdough waffles! I love that this recipe makes a bunch, because leftovers are never turned down around here. If you eat them plain you can get that slight sourdough taste, but it’s completely masked when you put anything on them.
If you done have a waffle iron, this recipe makes for great pancakes. You can find the pancake recipe here.
