Servings: 10 large waffles

  • 1 cup sourdough starter (unfed or fed, either works)
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 cups nondairy milk
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp flaxmeal + 6 tbsp warm water, whisked)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil (optional)


  • Make the overnight sponge by mixing together the sourdough starter, whole wheat pastry flour, sugar, milk and vinegar in a very large bowl. The dough will expand by morning as all those good bacteria and yeast go to work, so make sure you have enough room in the bowl.
  • In the morning, just before making your waffles, mix the baking soda, salt, oil, if using, and flax eggs into the overnight sponge.
  • Use a ½ cup measure to pour the batter on a preheated waffle maker. Bake according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Serve hot with some fruit and maple syrup.
