Don't waste your sourdough discard. I usually keep my sourdough discard in the freezer and it can last for months.  There are so many ways to use it and turning it into waffles is just one way.  These Sourdough Discard Waffles are crispy outside, soft inside and just delicious.  

Please click "Sourdough Discard Recipes"  to find out how I use my sourdough discard.

How To Store Waffles:

Store the waffles in the refrigerator in an airtight containers or ziplock plastic bags once it is completely cool.  You should try to consume them in within few days (3-5 days).  Just reheat the waffles in toaster oven, toaster, regular oven or an airfryer when you want to enjoy it.

If you want the waffles to last longer.  Please store the waffles in the freezer.  It'll be the same as storing in the refrigerator, keep the waffles in airtight container or ziplock plastic bags.  Waffles can be kept in the freezer for several months (up to 3 months)

Recipe:  Sourdough Discard Waffle

Yields:  5 waffles (4.5" square waffles)


90g all purpose flour
10g wholewheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder or double acting baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda

200g sourdough discard (100% hydration, cold from the fridge)
100g full cream milk or fresh milk
1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
2 egg (M size, about 60g)
70g butter, melted
15g (1 Tbsp) brown sugar

  1. Preheat your waffle maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. In a bowl, mix together ingredients A.  Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl or jar, add in all the ingredients B.  Mix with a hand whisk until all well mixed.  
  4. Add in dried ingredients A to wet ingredients B.  Mix until just incorporated.
  5. Ladle or pour the batter onto the preheated waffle maker until just full. Don't over fill.  Cook for about 4 - 6 minutes until golden brown.  The longer you cook, you will get more crispy crust.  Repeat the same with the rest of batter.  
  6. Transfer the waffles to wire rack.
  7. Continue to cook the rest of the waffles.  
  8. It is best to serve immediately while the waffles still crispy.  Top with sauce or fresh fruit at your choice.  If the waffles lost its crispiness, just toast in the airflyer, toaster oven or oven.
  9. Store the leftover waffles in an airtight container in the fridge.  Toast before serving.


  1. Yum! Will definitely try this recipe this week. I am just needing to use up my starter. Thanks for the recipe! BlueWren.

  2. Looks so good! Am very tempted to try it, just have to ask if it tastes sourrr?

    1. Hi, thanks for your interest in this recipe. Not sour at all because I added baking soda. When baking soda is added, it neutralizes those acids/sourness.

      I hope you will like it too.

      Cheers :)
