Thanks for the reply Bill. That makes sense about the butter making the waffles more tender. Also I had the same thought about buttermilk shortly after posing the question; that it would take away from the sourdough flavour (especially with a more mild starter).

As for cheese on waffles, growing up my family did regular Sunday brunches, usually waffles or pancakes, and a cheese plate was always on the table. I love the combination of a really sharp aged cheddar with maple syrup drizzled on top. Everyone I've introduced the combo to loves it. Add to that a slice of savoury sausage and you've got one very delicious and complex mouthful! :)

Marscapone or a fresh chèvre with fesh fruit salad is another awesome topping combo.

Bill,

No ipad here, but I do look forward to trying your recipes in the future (going to have to get back in the culture game and take a break from the low carb thing).

Those onion rings Craig made look incredible.  have you tried a roll in panko after battering the onion rings?  Seems like the texture would be out out of this world.

I tried countless variations (including "panko" crumbs made with leftover starter) and, for my tastes, the texture of the batter by itself is just about perfect. But I'd love to hear about it if anyone gives it a try.

Did anyone get this to go on a pc using Itunes?  It is a big file and I would like to attempt it.  I now have I tunes on my pc and was just curious.

You can download it to iTunes on your PC, but then you will need to sync to an iPad. You will not be able to view it on your PC. Sorry.

No question in my mind: I will never use the Apple authoring platform again to publish an eBook.

Odd. I couldn't download on the phone. Only the iPad.

3 years later, still don't have an I-pad.  Just trolling for sourdough recipes. Will be making sd pitas today, but those waffles!

Since I already lifted this post up, here is the link to actual recipe for Bill's sourdough waffles posted elsewhere on this forum. 
The thread is specific to using excess sourdough rather than tossing it out.

Bill,
I just learned of this in the "What are you eating right now?" topic. In my short time here I already had respect and appreciation for your contributions but this is astounding.

I'm not as good as I would like to be yet with starters/cultures/sourdough but I am interested. I was especially interested in this as a tech publishing experiment as you clearly explained it. On that front, the end result is it is now on my iPad and working beautifully - exactly as you hoped it would from what I can tell. I had a little trouble getting to that point but, hey, it's been over 3 years since you put this out there. The most confusing  part in downloading it was that the store kicked me to the Austrailian store, then told me I was not authorized to buy from the US store. There is a chance that was caused by the last item I browsed in the store. This is in no way a complaint, it's information I thought you would like to have.

Very nicely done - and quite generous. Thank you.
-Tony

Thank you, Tony, for the kind words.

Sorry you had difficulties downloading, but I'm not surprised. Apple could have been the leader in eBook/multimedia compositions, but they keep making the experience for both developers and consumers less than stellar.

Bill .... WOW!!!

I couldn't wait for something to use my newly activating Ischia starter on so I tried your waffles recipe.

The only words I can think to pay partial homage are: "I can't believe I spent the first 54 years of my life missing out on this!"

Will you promise me that my pizzas will taste that much better too???   :D

thanks again

A really great recipe for leftover starter. I've made it a couple of times with different fruits and spices. The mantra in our family has long been "buttermilk pancakes, sourdough waffles". These are the first sourdough pancakes that really wowed:

I hope to update the ebook with my variations of this beauty one of these days.
