Waffles with Natural Yeast

It's been a really big week.  You totally deserve waffles this weekend.  

Make them.   Make them soon.

Soon!   They're easier than you think.

I get up a couple of hours earlier than everyone else in the house.    I make the batter for these as soon as I get up, then I let it sit for a couple of hours and do its thing until everyone else starts to stir.  Perfect waffles every time!

Waffles with Natural Yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups natural yeast [or whatever is left when you feed your start]
  • 1 1/2 cups hot milk
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tb sugar
  • 2 Tb oil
  • spices if you want them:   1/2 tsp cinnamon or nutmeg or cardamom
My natural yeast start loves hot liquids, so I heat the milk in the microwave until it is steaming all the way through.    Mix all ingredients together well.   Let it sit and rise for a couple of hours before you make your waffles.    Makes 7 waffles. 

Tip:   You can thin this batter and make pancakes.

Tip:  My yeast likes a HOT pan to get the best rise.   Make sure your griddle or waffle iron is good and hot before you start. 

Tip:   Put jam on your waffles!   The photo shows plum jam and white nectarine jam on the waffles together.   Mmmmm.

  1. This is great, thanks! I don't have any natural yeast at the moment, but must remedy that soon. I feel like I've been perpetually in search of a go-to waffle recipe, so I'm hoping yours will be the one!
