I am so excited to be working with starters. I had no idea that there were so many health benefits from using natural yeast. Eating these will lower the glycemic index of all the other things you eat throughout the day.
I recently met a man who makes bread and other things with a sour dough starter. I was so excited to hear what he knew about them! He said one of his favorites are sour dough waffles. Here was my first attempt at making anything with a sour dough starter.
I found the recipe on breadtopia.com.
Milk, eggs, salt, sugar, flour, starter and baking soda.
Heat the following in a pan until the butter is melted and then let cool to room temperature.
4 oz (1/2 cup or 115 g) butter 8 oz (1 cup or 225 g) milk
Add the milk-butter mixture to:
9 oz (about a cup or 255g) white starter 1 tsp salt 1 Tbsp (packed) brown sugar 6 oz (about 1 1/2 cups or 170 g) all purpose flour.
Mix these together to form a thick batter. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 8-14 hours. If you do this before going to bed, you’ll have the batter ready for breakfast the next day.Uncover the batter and whisk in 2 large eggs and 1/4 tsp baking soda. Pour 1/2 to 3/4 cups of batter on the hot waffle iron and close the lid. Let cook for 3-5 minutes until golden brown and crisp.
These waffles were really good! I was up all night with the baby, and my husband let me sleep in. So he made breakfast for the kids before I got up. It wasn’t a true taste test, but they were gone before lunch! I will definitely make them again.
