Golden Sourdough Starter Waffles

I got 9 WafflesπŸ˜‰πŸ˜šπŸ˜Ž

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! πŸ˜†
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.πŸ˜‰!

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 😎 πŸ’•
 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...
