The Ingredients

The Flour, The Cornstarch, The Leavening & The Salt

A few items from the cupboard will have you well on your way to making pancakes. All purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda & regular table salt is all that is need in order to get started. You’ll have more control over the flavor if you blend your own ingredients as opposed to using self-rising items which are too salty for this cooking application.

Buttermilk grounds the recipe so be certain to always use whole or full fat for a richer taste while the bananas along with the vanilla impart distinctively good flavor. The egg yolks provide richness & the oil contributes to a crisp waffle exterior.

When sugar is added to egg whites, they create an incredibly stable mixture that holds peaks well. The key to this step which provides the majority of the crisp texture in this particular waffle recipe is to be certain not to add the sugar too soon or they will not whip to their maximum volume. Beat the eggs with a hand mixer & just when soft peaks begin to form, slowly add the sugar.
