blueberry cinnamon sourdough waffles

blueberry cinnamon sourdough waffles
There is nothing I love more than the morning ritual of breakfast. My breakfast routine doesn't vary greatly from week to week- breakfast at my desk during the work week,  on Saturday a quiet breakfast in the garden after a morning at the gym and a big lazy breakfast with my better half on Sunday.
With my love of breakfast, it is surprising that homemade waffles haven't been in my weekly rotation more often. The things is, I had a horrible experience/meltdown the few attempts I made at making waffles and never went  back to try again- that is until recently. My problem, come to find out was not letting the waffle iron heat up correctly, combined with rushing the cooking process lead to a disastrous waffle making experience. Once I  learned to be a bit more patient, waffles have been a great success, and that is such a good thing- it makes me very, very happy indeed.

I have grown to love waffle making almost as much as I love making pancakes- the best part of my newly acquired skill is being able to make a big batch of waffles to freeze for the week. Using my sourdough starter for waffles has been amazing, especially with the warmer months ahead of us I definitely do not want to be turning on my oven to bake loaves of bread. This is where recipes for making sourdough waffles and grilled sourdough pizza come in handy.

The batter base is versatile- simply sub in the cup of blueberries for your favorite berry or chocolate chips. Almond extract and other spices  for the cinnamon can easily be swapped in and out- customize to your liking. Justin is very traditional and prefers pure maple syrup on his stack of waffles- I on the other hand love a variety; fruit compote or more fresh berries with coconut whipped cream - both options are amazing!

I do consider myself lucky to be able to enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the weekends, I am not sure how that plays out when you have a family. Growing up we always had a big Sunday morning breakfast and on Saturday's my Dad would sometimes surprise us with donuts from Goody Good Donuts. I am not sure if my Mom would consider those mornings leisurely, but as a kid growing up they sure were fun!
Do you have the luxury/opportunity to enjoy a leisurely breakfast at least once a week,or a morning routine that you just couldn't live without?

Blueberry Cinnamon Sourdough Waffles
makes 6 waffles

you will need:
1 cup sourdough starter - room temp
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup Almond milk or other non dairy milk
1 cup blueberries
coconut oil spray or vegan butter for greasing the waffle iron

maple syrup, berries or coconut whipped cream for serving

assembly:

Turn on waffle iron to pre heat.

Place sourdough starter through almond milk in a medium mixing bowl- stir until well mixed.  
Fold in blueberries.

Spray pre heated iron waffle and pour just under 1/2 cup into each waffle square (my maker has 2 side x side) close cover and cook according to your waffle maker.

Remove cooked waffles from iron and place on a wire rack to cool before freezing or serve immediately. Waffles can be held in the oven at 170* until your batch is complete.

Serve with maple syrup, fresh berries or coconut whipped cream.

Enjoy!
Yum

  3. Wow those are simply beautiful! I really need to get down to making a breakfast ritual for myself. I just always end up being lazy or having to work early. I will make this my goal and use your beautiful waffles as my inspiration :)

  6. It has been way too long since I made waffles. My best friend is coming into town for a few days later this month, and I know it's the perfect time to break out the waffle iron. Guess I need to work on my sourdough starter now!

  7. Yummy! I love waffles! Do you know what a good sub would be for no sourdough? Can you use just flour with some baking powder or soda?

    1. I think that would be a safe substitution - maybe like 1 tsp of baking powder & 1/2 tsp baking soda

  9. We don't usually have time on the weekends for leisurely breakfasts, but these waffles are enough to remind me to MAKE the time. And make these! Thanks for the inspiration and reminder of my childhood Saturday morning breakfasts when my dad would always make us chocolate chip pancakes.

  11. Ooh, those waffles look perfect! I wouldn't change a thing. We always go out for coffee and a pastry on Saturday mornings, so that's our weekly luxury. I look forward to it all week long, and we're definitely lucky to be able to do it. :)

  12. Sourdough waffles are a brilliant idea! I love sourdough bread but have never thought to make sourdough waffles! I love this! Don't even get me started on how much I'm drooling over those blueberries...

  13. Those Waffles stole my heart ! They look so seductive, so luscious that I willingly gave my heart away :(

    Why do they have to look and smell soooooooooooooooo incredibly good?

  14. Those look like perfect little waffles! I think the only time I've had blueberries in my waffles is the Eggo variety...I tend not to order them when I go out for breakfast because they always sound so plain on menus...if I could order sourdough waffles with blueberries and cinnamon, topped with fruit, syrup and coconut whipped cream like these then I would be eating them more often!

  15. i love blueberries in waffles!! these look so perfect.. on the days when i do crave something sweet for breakfast it has to have some fruit and the sourdough is taking these waffles to my favorite breakfast list!

  16. Oooh, these look fantastic! I've been meaning to start another sourdough starter and recipes like this have me thinking I should do it sooner rather than later! I love mornings with easy relaxed breakfasts, but with a little ones it's not all that relaxing for me having to get breakfast ready for everyone else. Maybe when the kids are bigger. Or maybe when I get motivated to make and freeze waffles beforehand. Now that I think of it, I really need to do that! :D

  17. I totally agree, that is why I love love breakfast the ritual! Waffles don't hurt either!

  19. Mmmmmmm....waffles!!!! These look delicious. I adore blueberries as a garnish for waffles. Even better when they are baked right in!!! :)

  20. A waffle iron has been on my "I want!" list for a long time now, and I keep saying I'm going to follow your lead and jump on the sourdough starter bandwagon... I just haven't yet. Maybe this is the perfect opportunity to combine the two? If I do it, get ready for some serious waffle-makin'! :)

  21. I want a waffle iron very badly. But my kitchen is microscopic. So, I'm just gonna come over and have you make these for me instead. Cool?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Another reason to buy a waffle iron. I recently started making sourdough pancakes with my leftover starter and I'M NEVER GOING BACK! :) So flavorful and with amazing texture...I can only imagine how they would be as waffles. Even my pancake-hating boyfriend (seriously, what planet is he from?) had to admit that he liked the sourdough version. Next, I'll prove to him that waffles are where it's at!
