Light, crispy whole grain sourdough waffles made with active sourdough starter are a delicious weekend breakfast or brunch treat to help use your starter! (dairy-free)
Waffles always remind me of weekends as a kid. My mom always made either pancakes or waffles on the weekends, and I especially loved when she made waffles.
She always served them with sliced bananas and strawberries, blueberries, pecans, and whipped cream. The whipped cream totally made them amazing.
Now that Mr. Table and I have a waffle maker, our Saturday pancake tradition has slowly been turning into a Saturday waffle tradition. I’m not one bit mad. Because waffles.
These whole grain sourdough waffles have crispy outsides thanks to the cornstarch (and this awesome waffle maker) and light, fluffy insides. The active sourdough starter and club soda make the batter extra airy so that they don’t have that heavy, dense texture you sometimes get with whole wheat flour. Just make sure you buy white whole wheat flour for the best results.
Serve these delicious whole grain sourdough waffles with any kind of fruit you like. I still love berries and bananas. They’re also delicious with pecans, chocolate chips, maple syrup (of course), and definitely with whipped cream. Always whipped cream.
These heavenly waffles make the most wonderful weekend breakfast or brunch, and you can freeze any extras to heat up on busy weekdays for a delicious breakfast on the go!
