Sourdough Belgian Waffles


Belgian waffles are different from other types of waffles in that they are made with a yeast-based dough instead of using a quick-rising agent such as baking powder.

This recipe uses an overnight souring process to create rich, tangy, light waffles that are simply delicious.


  • 1 cup active sourdough starter
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¾ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda


  1. Combine the sourdough starter, water, and flour in a medium bowl. Cover and leave on the countertop overnight.
  2. In the morning, whisk the melted butter, honey, salt, vanilla, eggs, and baking soda together. Fold this mixture into the sourdough mixture.
  3. Preheat and grease a waffle iron. Pour batter into the center of the iron. Close and bake until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes.

Serve warm with butter, syrup, jam, or your own favorite toppings.
