  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • ¾ cup flour whole grain or white, wheat or Einkorn
  • ½ cup buttermilk or regular milk
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 TBSP melted butter
  • 1 TBSP sugar optional
  • oil for greasing the waffle iron I prefer avocado oil


  • Have your fed sourdough starter ready. 
  • In a medium bowl, combine the wet ingredients.
  • Add the flour and sugar, if using. You can use this batter immediately or let it sit (ideally overnight).
  • When you're ready to make your waffles, preheat your cast iron waffle maker over medium heat. 
  • Once your waffle iron is hot, grease it with oil.  Allow the oil to become hot.
  • Add your batter to the waffle iron.  Bake your waffle, flipping the waffle iron after a few minutes. Resist the temptation to try to lift the upper part too soon.  When the waffles are done, they will not stick and come out easily.
  • Keep warm until ready to eat. Serve with a dollop of soft butter and maple syrup of your favorite toppings.


  • Feel free to use cow's milk or any plant-based milk instead of buttermilk. 
  • To make gluten-free waffles, you can use a GF sourdough starter and GF flour mix.
