Golden Sourdough Starter Waffles

I got 9 Waffles😉😚😎

My take on a morning waffle of course incorporates a bit of my sourdough starter, and these “golden sourdough starter waffles” come out a crispy golden brown at just the right ratio of sweetness to savory (with a welcome slight tang to them at the end).
I decided to make a little change and added 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour, absolutely amazing.

Simply delightful and delicious! 😆
Here I'm coking the waffles. .
Next morning added the baking soda, eggs and salt and mix it until all Incorporated..
Added some stater and two kinds of flours,  a couple of eggs, some 1 % buttermilk, unsalted butter, water, turbinado sugar, salt, and some baking soda , mix altogether except the baking soda the eggs and salt and let it set at room temperature overnight. ...
Made the starter...
 Absolutely Delicious indeed.😉!

Croissants, doughnut and Brioche waffles

Liege waffles air tiny, rich and intense, stretchy, layered and faintly crunch within from  embedded pearls of sugar and firm on the outside from that same sugar melted and trickling about the waffle iron's grids to from  a caramelized shell. They're an extra-buttery brioche dough given a luxurious rise before studded with coarse sugar and scooped in doughy mounts onto a waffle..

By the way, did you know that the 1964 World's Fair was where It's a Small World was introduced? I actually rode the ride at the World's Fair! (It was just as annoying then as it is now).

I love waffles and have been making these for some time and these are beat with whipped cream or for breakfast and eggs on top with some home fries.. (I got 16 waffles).

           Absolutely Delicious! 😉
 They taste good with eggs and home fries..
  Making them in the iron waffle..
Now you divide them into 16 mounds and place the in the fridge, while you start to cook them one to two at a time. .
 Next day you are ready to knead the dough with pearls sugar..
 Here it is doubled in size, deflate and cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight..
 Into a large bowl and wrapped with plastic wrap, let raise for 2 hours at room temperature..
 All most ready..
 Got the yeast , milk, water and sugar ready.
Whisked the eggs and vanilla together, in a stand mixer added the flour minus one cup of flour and added the butter one spoon full at a time , until done..
 Have all the ingredients ready. .
 So delightful and delicious! 😆

Sour Cherry, Toasted Pecans and Buckwheat Levain

I love bread that has levain, so I decide to make sour cherry, toasted pecans and some buckwheat with levain../  the tartaine experience bread...

In addition to these two complementary flavors I knew cherries and buckwheat would also work well together — the earthy buckwheat grounds the sweet and sour cherries, it mellows their strong flavor and provides balance..
So I decide to make two loaves..

          Look at those lovely clumbs 😎 💕
 Absolutely Beautiful!/ out of oven to cool.
Toke them out of the fridge the next day and made some slashes and into the oven and have my pan with clothes damped with hot water ready in the oven for steam.
Covered them with plastic bag and into the fridge for 14-15 hours....
Cut the dough into two parts and Shaped them both and placed in baskets...
After the second set of stretch and folds add the nuts and cherries...
add the nuts and cherries. ...
Now mix the levain and flours and water / did 3 sets of stretch and folds...
Made the levain and add some starter....
Made the starter....
Beautiful! 😎
