super awesome happy times sour dough waffles

I have a silicone mat that makes oven waffles six at a time. I’ve been experimenting with the formula, and this one has been the most super awesome happy times version thus far

Dump 2 cups of discard (use 1/2 as much water as flour to feed your starter, then again, put in 1 cup of flour to 1/2 a cup of water and wait two hours. Alternatively, you can do this the night before for breakfast time.

2 beaten eggs)

1/4 cup of whipping cream (I didn’t have butter or a lot of milk to spare. You can add 2 tbs butter to 1 cup of milk if you have to, but cannot promise super awesome happy time results)

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder (sifted or put into a small bowl and smashed about on the back of the spoon to get rid of the lumps

2 tbs honey

Add everything together fast as you can, beat the hell out of it for like 10 strokes and then stop. Dump immediately into a well greased silcone waffle maker already on a cookie sheet. If you need to cook them manually or as pancakes, divide batter in half and add 1/2 tsp of baking powder as you’re ready for each. You want these to be light and fluffy.

In a 350 degrees oven Bake 20 minutes, put parchment paper over the top, put a second cookie sheet over the parchment and flip the while thing. The silicone mold should come right off. Bake 7 minutes. Sprinkle brown sugar on waffles and broil last three.

I haven’t retested this method, but these were to die for. They were creamy centered, crisp, and the bruleed sugar on top was the best bit. The baking soda gave them a happy pretzel-y taste that I picked up.

It’s a great way to use your discarded sourdough starter, or something to just make. All told, it’s five minutes of prep and 30 minutes of waiting if you have one of these. (Not an affiliated link. Get it, don’t get it, but they make using your discard *so* easy)
