These Belgian-style waffles start with an optional overnight ferment. They can be savory or sweet. For a healthy option, skip the sugar and use wholegrain flour! See the sections above for other ways to adjust this recipe.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup active sourdough starter
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter (or vegetable oil)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar (optional, see section above for other flavors)


  1. Mix the sourdough starter, milk, butter, and eggs in a large glass measuring cup or mixing bowl. Stir in the flour, salt, and sugar (if you want sweet waffles).
  2. The waffles can be cooked right away. Alternatively, put the batter in an airtight container and leave it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Overnight waffles will be more bread-like. See the section above for more details on each of these options.
  3. Cook the waffles according to the directions for your waffle iron.
