Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: dependent on waffle maker
Banana Cream Waffle Ingredients:
Yield: 4 6-inch waffles
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 eggs, separated
2 T granulated sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
Sweet cream (loosely whipped cream)
Roast your bananas at 350°F for 20 minutes until the skins are entirely black (the insides will still be luscious and white!). Allow to cool completely. To see the inside of my bananas and see the texture, head to the 6:08 mark.
Put your butter into a saucepan over medium heat and allow it to brown. You'll see the butter melt, then fizz and bubble, then it will foam. Beneath the foam your milk solids will be browning! Give it a stir regularly enough to make sure it browns evenly. Remove from heat and allow to cool a little before using.
In a separate bowl, whisk together your all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
Separate your eggs into two large bowls..
Whisk your granulated sugar into your egg yolks until they lighten in color.
Add your vanilla extract to your egg yolks and whisk to combine, then add in your buttermilk.
You can either put your banana meat into a bowl to mash a little, or put them directly into your egg yolk mixture and just mash as you stir. If you want larger chunks of banana, don't pre-mash!
Very carefully add your browned butter to the banana mixture, pouring a little at a time and stir as your incorporate.
Gently stir in your dry ingredients.
Whisk your egg whites until they reach stiff peaks (you don't have to do this by hand, you can use a stand or hand mixer. I promise it really doesn't take that long!).
Fold your egg whites into your batter. To see my process head to the 8:07 mark.
Check out my waffle stack at the 13:14 mark.
Load with all of your favorite toppings and enjoy!
You can totally make substitutions in process here! You don't have to roast the bananas, separate your eggs, or brown the butter. Those are just some tricks to enhance your banana waffles. You can also sub in a different dairy, whatever your have on hand!
