Today was one of the sourdough feeding days. Instead of drying the starter out to save it, I keep it in the refrigerator and feed (or use and replenish) the starter a couple of times a week. But before I can feed it, I have to let it warm up on the kitchen counter for a couple of hours.
Our daughter noticed the starter out on the counter and asked if I could make sourdough waffles tomorrow. She had even picked out a recipe at King Arthur Flour sourdough waffle for me and got the strawberries at the store. It is not possible for me to say no to sourdough waffles (or pancakes).
The sourdough sponge is in a bowl–waiting until tomorrow morning and so is the old Griswold cast iron waffle iron.
