Liège sourdough waffle {without milk}

Gaufre de Liège

Ça y est je me suis enfin lancé dans l’aventure du levain. Et ça c’est grâce à une amie qui m’a donné une partie du sien et j’espère lui faire honneur, car son levain elle le pouponne depuis 2004 ! Alors c’est parti pour l’aventure levain et je peux vous dire que les débuts n’ont pas été simples avec Martin (oui c’est son petit nom !). Mais maintenant que je commence à l’apprivoiser, je lui fait faire pas mal de choses, et là ce sont des gaufres de Liège. Cela faisait une éternité (oui au moins tout ça !) that I had not made Liège waffles, and Martin le levain revived me in the adventure. This version is without milk and with wholemeal flour, healthier but just as tasty as the original recipe that I suggested to you quite some time ago.

Perfect for Wednesday afternoon tea (that's good it's today !), children and adults will devour them. SO, Who are good sourdough waffles for? ?!

    Tried… approved ! I was transported to the streets of Brussels, in front of one of those vans that sell Liège waffles ! 2 adjustments for me : T80 flour and butter instead of margarine.
    Thank you for this "all sourdough" recipe that I was looking for !
