Sour Cream Sourdough Waffles

Unlike my recipe for sourdough waffles which uses the discard, this recipe for sour cream sourdough waffles is a two day process. On day one you refresh your starter. And on day two you can make the waffles.

We have three bathrooms at home. I use the one in the cottage during the night as I can navigate the stairs in my sleep. We are still sleeping upstairs in the cottage as I refuse to move until our bedroom is complete. And to make his life easier, Dave uses the cottage kitchen in the morning to make coffee and feed the dogs. In the morning and evening we both use the one that will eventually be our en-suite. Dave uses this during the night as he is confident about crossing the walkway in the dark. I prefer not to as I sometimes do not rouse fully from sleep when I need the bathroom in the middle of the night. But mostly when we are at home we use the guest loo as it is downstairs. Our entire living area is downstairs so it makes the most sense.

However, we spend more time at work than at home during the week and it is that WC that sees the most use. Now, you are probably wondering why on earth am I telling you this. Well, it is because I am always fascinated by how often I have to replace four loo rolls in one day. Some might get changed more often than others. But I don’t always do the renewing process. But when I do, I find that all four toilet rolls run out in one day. As it is my least favourite task, we have easy to slip on toilet roll holders. There are no complicated spring systems to work and there is always a spare roll in each toilet. What is your least favourite household chore?

Sour Cream Sourdough Waffles

The sour cream creates a fluffy texture and add a rich flavour
Recipe Category: Breakfast
Makes enough for: 4 people


Day 1:

  • 260 g sourdough starter
  • 70 g flour
  • 100 g water

Day 2:

  • 70 g flour
  • 150 g sour cream, plus extra for serving
  • 15 g salted butter, melted
  • 2.5 mls baking powder
  • 50 g fructose
  • 1 egg, separated

To serve:

  • maple syrup or fruit compote


Day 1:

  • Place the starter, flour and water into a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine
  • Cover and leave to stand overnight

Day 2:

  • Add the flour, sour cream, butter, baking powder, fructose and egg yolk to the refreshed starter
  • Whisk until completely combined and there are no lumps
  • Place the egg white into a mixing bowl and use an electric whisk to whisk to soft peaks
  • Gently fold the egg whites into your batter
  • When completely incorporated test the consistency of your batter. It should easily pour off a spoon. You can thin it out with milk if necessary
  • Ladle the batter onto your heated waffle iron and cook as per the manufacturer's' instructions
  • Serve hot, with maple syrup like I did or sour cream and fruit compote

  1. As it happens, I just made the batter for sourdough-discard pancakes, which is very much like your method, using Kefir (the fermented milk product) rather than sour cream. Sometimes I make the pancakes sweet, sometimes savory.

    be well… mae at

  2. Jealous of your three bathrooms! These waffles look fantastic! We eat waffles almost everyday. I wonder if I could add a little anise or vanilla in them? Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Too funny–but that happens to me too–all the TP needs changing at the same time (I just assumed everyone else was avoiding it). Your waffles sound delicious. And oops, I think I am late feeding my starter!
