With Christmas just two days away, you may be planning your Christmas brunch menu. My mom always had coffee cake, quiche, cinnamon rolls, eggs, waffles, fruit and maybe more. Christmas was out of control at my house a child – and it was the best.

I will probably be making my Cinnamon Pecan Babka Coffee Cake, because I have finally perfected the coffee cake from my childhood and it’s this. I highly recommend adding it to your brunch menu! But, we made these Eggless Sourdough Waffles the other day, and they are also amazing.

Can I make waffles ahead of time?

Yes, absolutely! You can prep waffles anytime and then freeze them. You can reheat waffles in the toaster or toaster oven, and they taste amazing!

Can I freeze homemade waffles?

Yes, you can absolutely freeze waffles. I put them in a Tupperware in the freezer. But a zip bag will also work!

What toppings can I add to sourdough waffles?

Sourdough waffles are amazing with butter and maple syrup, just like traditional waffles. We also have had some of my Brown Butter Butterscotch Sauce around and we’ve been using that as a dipping sauce, it’s amazing! You can also drizzle with Homemade Caramel Sauce, Homemade Whipped Cream, Chocolate Ganache, fresh fruit such as bananas, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and more!

Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

Eggless Sourdough Waffles

Recipe by MimiDifficulty: Easy



Use up extra sourdough discard with this easy recipe for Eggless Sourdough Waffles!


  • Waffles
  • 284 grams (2 1/4 cups) organic all purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons organic cane sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking power

  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon

  • 1 cup (226 grams) organic salted butter, melted

  • 1 1/2 cups organic milk

  • 113 grams (1/2 cup) organic sourdough starter

  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

  • Topping
  • organic salted butter

  • organic maple syrup

  • organic cranberries


  • In a large bowl, add the flour, cane sugar, baking powder, sea salt, and cinnamon and whisk together.
  • Add in the melted butter, milk, sourdough starter, and vanilla extract. Whisk together to combine until you have a smooth batter.
  • Allow waffle iron to get warm, I cooked these on setting 4 on my waffle iron that I linked above. But, medium on any iron will do! Measure 1/2 cup of batter into the waffle iron as I only let these fill the middle portion of my iron (if you have a smaller iron, may have to do less). Cook until golden brown, about 2 to 4 minutes, depending on your waffle iron.
  • Serve with butter, maple syrup, or whipped cream and fresh fruit.
  • Store extra waffles in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
