How to Make Banana Waffles

For a hearty way to start the day, why not choose a plate of banana waffles topped with even more sliced bananas and rich chocolate sauce? How could you say no to that sweet treat in the morning? It may be slightly naughty, but it's ever so nice. Plus, bananas are healthy, right?

METHOD: Irresistibly Delicious Banana Waffles

  1. Sift the baking powder, flour, caster sugar, salt and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl and give it all a little stir to make sure everything's combined.
  2. In a jug, beat together the eggs, milk, butter and bananas. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir well until just combined. Leave for about 5 to 10 minutes to rest.
  3. Meanwhile, heat up a griddle pan over a medium-high heat and drizzle sunflower oil over. Tilt to cover and leave to heat up for a few seconds. Pour in the waffle batter and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 5 minutes until golden, then flip the waffle and cook on the other side for a further 5 minutes, until cooked through and completely golden all over.
  4. Alternatively, if you own a waffle maker, follow the directions to cook individual waffles.
  5. Turn your cooked waffle out onto a board, cut into 6 pieces and serve with extra slices of banana, a drizzle of chocolate or maple sauce, and plenty of whipped cream!
