There's nothing like Sunday brunch with family and friends, and there's nothing like waffles to make brunch something really special. If you are a regular reader, you may have seen this photograph before. It was taken on our holiday in Canada, at my cousin Esther’s house. She made an amazing brunch on the Sunday morning featuring three delicious kinds of waffles. So far I have only shared the recipes for Esther's Lemon Blueberry Waffles and her Orange Pecan Waffles. There were Banana Walnut Waffles too! So, just in time for your Sunday brunch, let me share yet another one of Esther’s wonderful waffle recipes with you.
Banana Walnut Waffles
(Makes 10 waffles)
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup low-fat vanilla or plain yogurt
¾ cup milk
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 to 5 bananas, depending on size)
½ cup chopped walnuts
Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and oil. Stir into the flour mixture. Stir in the yogurt, and then the milk, until you have a smooth batter.
Add bananas and walnuts and stir until just mixed through. Let the batter rest for 5 to 10 minutes before cooking.
Preheat your waffle iron and cook the waffles according to manufacturer’s directions. Serve immediately or cool completely and freeze between layers of waxed or greaseproof paper.
