Are you looking for a delicious gluten free waffle? Or perhaps you have a very active sourdough starter and need a way to keep it going? Either way this gluten free sourdough waffle recipe is perfect for all your waffle needs, whether savoury or sweet.
I like sourdough waffles because:
- I like to wake up in the morning and discover that my waffle batter is already mixed.
- Sourdough fermentation improves the taste and texture of gluten free flours.
- The savoury sourdough flavour is perfect for making fun waffle recipes like these chicken stuffed waffles.
This gluten free sourdough waffle is based on a traditional Belgian-style waffle, however, the sourdough flavour means that it can be either savoury or sweet. The only trick is that you need to have an active sourdough starter. If you are looking for an overnight waffle mix that doesn’t require a starter, then I recommend my buttermilk waffles.
- 1 cup active sourdough starter
- 3 cups of milk
- 4 cups of flour mix (see notes)
- Remaining Ingredients
- ¾ cup of melted butter
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ cup sugar (optional, see notes for savoury options)
- Mix the milk with the flour and sourdough starter.
- Let the mixture sit out at room temperature overnight to ferment (6-10 hours).
- In the morning, mix in the remaining ingredients.
- Cook the waffles according to your waffle iron directions. I find that the sourdough batter requires slightly longer to cook than other waffle recipes.
-Here’s the instructions for creating an active sourdough starter.
-If you want to make a savoury waffle, omit the sugar and add in other flavours. I like spring onions, cheese and fresh herbs.
-This recipe would work with any wholegrain gluten free flour. For light and fluffy waffles I recommended this mix of flour and starches.
-I own this waffle maker and love it!
