This recipe is simple, but not too sweet - and makes the waffles nice and fluffy! Makes about 8 waffles.
Ingredients for the waffle batter:
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1 3/4 cup soy milk
- egg replacer equivalent to 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
Combine the dry ingredients into one bowl and mix with a fork to get rid of any large lumps. Combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and slowly pour the wet into the dry, stirring after every 1/2 cup. The batter shouldn't have too many lumps, but on the other hand, shouldn't be over-stirred. Let this sit while you prepare the bananas.
Ingredients for the bananas:
- 2 ripe yellow bananas
- 1.5 tbsp Nuttelex
- 1.5 tbsp brown sugar
- 1tbsp Kahlua (optional)
Combine the Nuttelex and sugar and melt for about 20 seconds in the microwave, until soft. Blend together and add the Kahlua, if you're using it. Cut the bananas into slices, either lengthways or longways, whichever you prefer. Add the bananas to the butter/sugar/Kahlua mixture and coat. These should then be cooked in a frypan over med-high heat for about 4 minutes on each side, until brown and caramelised but not burnt.
While these are cooking, you can make the waffles according to the instructions on your waffle maker.
If you're making a ton of waffles like I did a couple of weekends ago at a waffle party I hosted, keep them in one layer on a cookie sheet in your oven with the heat on low to keep them warm and crispy until ready for serving.
Pile your finished waffles up with fresh sliced strawberries, the caramelised bananas, maple syrup, veg bacon and whipped cream, if you like (my Soyatoo! sadly went mouldy after being open for two weeks so I had to bin it.)
