Banana Buttermilk Waffles

Banana Buttermilk Waffles

Hey y’all! I’m still in the thick of redecorating my apartment, so no theme this week, and probably not one next week either, but I’m getting back to *planning* my themes, so there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and now I can actually see it. Woohoo!

In the meantime, there’s something I’ve wondered for a bit, but hadn’t tried my hand at figuring out: could you essentially take a banana bread batter and make pancakes or waffles out of it? And basically have banana bread pancakes/waffles? Because wouldn’t that be the best thing ever? Well, turns out yes you can, and yes it is.

Very, very awesome little breakfast I’m showing you here. Or dinner. Or hey – top it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and a little caramel or fudge sauce and call it dessert! Why the heck not? Enjoy!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 overripe bananas
2 large eggs
½ cup sour cream
1 ½ cups buttermilk
1 stick (8 tbs) unsalted butter, melted
Toasted pecans and maple syrup, for serving

Preheat your waffle maker to manufacturer’s instructions. Grease with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a smaller bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until they are very smooth. Add the eggs, sour cream, and buttermilk. Whisk to combine. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and whisk until just combined. Add the melted butter and whisk again until just combined.
Ladle the batter into the waffle maker, working batches if necessary, and cook according to manufacturer’s instructions.
To serve, sprinkle some pecans on top of each waffle and drizzle with maple syrup.

  1. Julie,
    All the more reason to pick up some plain yogurt or sour cream because I’ve got everything else and these look wonderful.
