Buttermilk Banana Pecan Waffles
2 eggs separated
1 C. buttermilk
4 T. melted butter or oil
1 1/4 C. flour
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 T. sugar
3/4 C. pecans chopped
2 bananas diced
Heat the waffle iron. In a mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks and buttermilk.
Blend well and stir in butter.
Whip the egg whites until stiff. Set aside.
Put flour, salt and baking powder into a sifter and sift into the bowl
containing the buttermilk. Stir in the flour. Add in the bananas and nuts. Fold
in the egg whites until just blended.
Spray with oil the grids on the waffle iron. Ladle or pour enough batter to
cover two-thirds of the grid. Close the waffle grill and cook until the steam
stops, about 5 minutes. When the waffle is done, lift the lid and remove the
waffle with a fork. Repeat with remaining batter.
