Making sourdough waffles is incredibly fun, all you need is a mixing bowl, and a trusty waffle maker, and you’re halfway there!

  • Total Time: 3 minutes


  • 240 grams sourdough discard 
  • 230 grams of buttermilk 
  • 120 grams of all-purpose flour 
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, maple syrup, or honey 
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter (salted) 
  • 1 large egg 
  • ½ teaspoon unrefined sea salt 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. First turn on your waffle maker so it can heat up. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 200°F and place an oven-safe plate inside. This is to keep the cooked waffles warm while you finish making the rest.
  2. In a large bowl combine your wet ingredients: buttermilk, sourdough discard, eggs, warm melted butter, and honey.
  3. In a separate bowl add flour, baking soda, and salt. Then add your wet ingredients to the bowl, and mix till there are no lumps or fragments of dry batter.
  4. Spoon ½ cup of batter into the waffle maker. It’s important to note that the amount of batter you use will rely upon the size of the waffle maker. For instance, in a regular American waffle maker, you can use around ½ cup of batter per waffle. But in a deep Belgian waffle maker, that tends to create thicker waffles, you should use about ¾ cup of batter.
  5. Furthermore, the cooking time will also depend on your waffle baker and the amount of batter you are cooking. In an American waffle maker, these waffles will be ready in 2 minutes. On the other hand, a Belgian waffle maker will transform your waffle batter into large, thick sourdough waffles in 3 minutes!
  6. Serve and add your favorite toppings!
