Banana & Pecan Waffles
Our waffle maker has been put to very good use.
If you've been to our home on a Saturday morning, you know we love our waffles. Dessert for breakfast? Yes please!
I don't think there is anything better than fresh, hot, slightly crispy, sugar infused waffle.
This is my favorite recipe as each bite is loaded with bite size pieces of banana and crunchy pecans.
Drizzle (or bathe) your waffles in maple syrup, butter and icing sugar and you are in a for a delicious breakfast!

2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
2 ounces butter, melted (1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons cold water
Beat egg whites until you get firm peaks. Beat egg yolks and milk lightly together.
Add sifted dry ingredients and beat until smooth.
Add melted, cooled butter and the water. Blend well. Fold in the firmly beaten egg whites.
Heat the waffle iron. Brush both top and bottom surfaces of waffle iron with a bit of oil. Spoon approximately 4 tablespoons of the waffle mixture into the center of the iron. Close the iron and cook until golden brown.
Note: For fruit waffles, add 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind to the sifted ingredients. Before adding egg whites, beat in 1 cup thinly sliced and chopped banana or 1/2 cup drained crushed pineapple or 1 cup of blueberries.
