During the week, my family has staples that we stick to for breakfast. Bradley has toast/pancakes, fruit and yogurt while Chris and I have whatever we pick off the pantry shelf that day. But on the weekends it's a completely different story. We like trying new recipes and sitting down to a hearty and delicious breakfast as a family. And what sounds more delicious than taking a moist banana bread recipe and putting it in a waffle maker? Uhh, not much. Enjoy!
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 cup smashed banana (2 to 3 small bananas)
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil, plus more for brushing waffle iron
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- Soft unsalted butter and confectioners' sugar, for serving, optional
Lightly brush the top and bottom of the waffle iron with oil. Fill each section about three-quarters of the way full (there should still be some waffle iron showing). Close and cook until the waffles are golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Keep the waffles warm in the oven or covered with foil on a plate while you cook the remaining batter.
Spread with butter and dust with confectioners' sugar if you'd like.
