These may be the easiest overnight sourdough waffles you will ever make. Not only does the batter come together quickly, but they make the fluffiest waffles that will please a crowd.
The Story Behind Overnight Sourdough Waffles
I love sourdough bread. However, I’m not talking about any sourdough. When I talk about sourdough bread, I am talking about my Potato Flake Sourdough Bread. If you haven’t heard of it or had the privilege of tasting it yet, please go make a starter and get on it! You will for sure be thanking me later.
I was watching an Instagram story from Amber’s Kitchen a few weeks ago and saw her talking about her easy sourdough waffles. Granted, her sourdough starter/discard are completely different from mine, but I wanted to try it.
I’ve actually been wanted to experiment with my sourdough starter in making more recipes. So with that, I pulled out my Potato Flake Sourdough starter and gave it a feed. Before going to bed that night, I mixed together my sourdough starter with Kodiak Power Flapjack and Waffle Mix. As soon as it was mixed together, I covered it up and went to bed.
The next morning I pulled out my Dash mini waffle makers and made the waffles. The smell was the most incredible breakfast smell. In fact, several of my kids came down begging to know what the smell was.
Not only do these waffles produce a delicious smell, but they produce the fluffiest, thickest waffles you’ll ever have. The sweetness of my sourdough starter brings just the right sweetness to the waffle mix and really enchances the flavor of the Kodiak mix. I also believe it helps produce a better texture as well. My daughter who hates anything I make with Kodiak mix raved about these. I truly believe that the sourdough start helps break down the wheat overnight which in turn creates a softer texture on your palate.
If you are nervous to get into the sourdough game, don’t be. My sourdough bread, starter, and now these waffles are easy to make and hard to mess up. Don’t let it overwhelm you because you will be so glad once you get going!

Easy Overnight Sourdough Waffles
