Sourdough Waffle Recipe

Sourdough Waffle Recipe

Bondi Harvest Sourdough At Home

I would say time to dust out that old waffle iron and grease it up in quick fashion for this epic sourdough waffle recipe, but I’m sure in light of the isolation circumstances the waffle iron has become a permanent part of that kitchen decor, it has for us here at Bondi Harvest, perfecting what we think is the worlds best waffle recipe, even better than Mumma used to make, and we don’t use that term lightly. This recipe has been carefully adapted from a traditional waffle we took from the home of waffles to a fantastic, sour, crispy waffle. Just like Guy says, weekends, are for coffee, sleep’ins, and sourdough waffles! Maybe because everything has slowed down a notch we should make that every day is for sourdough waffles… Why not, we have the time.
