Pecan Waffles Banana Syrup

Pecan Waffles and Banana Syrup

1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup ground pecans
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup + 2 tbl. melted butter
2 egg whites
1 cup pecan pieces
2 whole bananas, peel and cut 1/2″ slices
2 1/2 cups maple syrup

In a mixing bowl combine flour, pecans, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl beat the egg yolks and vanilla slightly. Beat the milk and oil into the egg mixture. Fold the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Stir until combined yet still slightly lumpy. In a small bowl beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold beaten egg whites into batter, leaving little fluffs of egg whites.

Pour 1 cup batter onto grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle iron. Close lid quickly: do not open during baking. Bake according to the manufacturer’s directions for the waffle iron. In a saute pan, melt the remaining butter. Add the pecan pieces and saute until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the banana slices and syrup and bring the liquid to a simmer. Yield: 4 servings
