My love for bananas is well documented on this blog. From bread, muffins, crepes and cake to souffles, ice cream, pie and bars, I've got the banana theme covered. Even banana pancakes have appeared. When I saw that the theme for the Improv Challenge this month was bananas and nutmeg, I was excited! I love bananas (you already know that) and I love nutmeg, too! And I was happy to be able to expand my banana repertoire.
These waffles are a nice change from regular waffles - filled with mashed bananas and flavored with both cinnamon and nutmeg, they are delicious topped with whipped cream or with syrup (or both)! Any leftovers reheat nicely in the toaster oven.
You can throw together the batter while the waffle iron heats up - it's that fast. Start by whisking together the milk and egg in a large measuring cup or batter bowl. Then add in the flour, salt, baking powder,
Stir until combined and smooth, then add the mashed bananas.
Stir it again, then pour the batter onto a hot waffle iron.
Bake until golden brown.
(Clearly I pour a little to much batter on the iron!)
Hooray for bananas (and nutmeg, too)! See more great combinations below.
