Are you looking for an amazingly delicious gluten free waffle? Or perhaps you have a very active sourdough starter and need to keep feeding it? Either way this gluten free sourdough waffle recipe is perfect. It can be savoury or sweet.
Why I like sourdough waffles:
- 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 gluten free sourdough starter. If you are looking for an overnight waffle mix that doesn’t require a starter, then I recommend making overnight buttermilk waffles.

- 1 cup active GF sourdough starter
- 2 cups of milk
- 2 1/2 cups of gluten free flour
- ¾ cup of melted butter

- Let the mixture sit out at room temperature to ferment for 6-10 hours.
- When you are ready to cook the waffles, 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.
- If you want to make a savoury waffle, omit the sugar and add in other flavours. I like a 1/4 cup of finely chopped spring onions, grated cheese or fresh herbs.
- This recipe works with any wholegrain gluten free flour. I usually use buckwheat or oat flour. For a light and fluffy “white flour” waffles I recommended a mix of flour and starches.
- I own this waffle maker (affiliate link) and love it!
