Sour Dough Waffles for Ceilidh

Sough Dough Waffles

2 cups flour
2 cups water

Place this in a plastic container and let it sour by leaving it slighty uncovered and stirring it occasionally (ever four hours) with a wooden or plastic spooon, not metal.

In a day or two you will see it bubbling and know that it is sour.

Take out most of the dough into another bowl.
Add 1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tablespoons of sugar

Let sit for 10 minutes.  The mixture will get twice as big so let that be the judge of the size of bowl you use.

Add 1 egg well beaten and 1/4 cup oil.

Let the waffles cook for 2 minutes each, at least, and perhaps three.
Oil the waffle iron well with a brush

For the next day, add 2 more cups water, 2 cups flour and with what was left in the container, it should sour in a day.

Ceilidh and I would usually triple the recipe to feed about 12 people.

The whipping cream and sliced fruit on top of the waffles also helped to feed them.
