9.6 Banana waffles

I promised Sylvia a recipe, so (only a month later) here it is:

Banana Waffles

4 eggs, divided
2 cups milk
4 T melted butter
2.5 c flour
.5 c nut flour (I usually use almond or walnut)
2.5 tsp baking powder
.5 tsp salt
2 large or 3 small bananas, coarsely mashed

Mix eggs yolks, milk and melted butter together. Stir together dry ingredients, then add gradually to wet ingredients. Add bananas when the dry ingredients are mostly incorporated. Stir just until blended.

Whip egg whites to moderately stiff peaks. Fold into batter.

Bake in waffle iron until golden brown.

This is the version I currently make, with two teenagers (one being a boy). We have two waffle irons: one takes .5 c batter, the other takes 1.5 c batter. This recipe makes three large waffles and three or four small waffles. The recipe scales well down to either 2 or 3 eggs.

After many years of making waffles, the irons are still good, but the non-stick coating is not quite as non-stick as it used to be. A small touch of spray oil works wonders.

Correction: Sorry - baking powder not baking soda. You could possibly use baking soda with the bananas in the recipe, but then it probably should be about 1.25 tsp soda and I've not tried it that way.
