Banana waffles

I made waffles for breakfast this morning (well, there’s only one in the house now, so it’s looking like lunch as well). It’s a simple thing, here’s the recipe, transcribed from my late wife’s hand.

Dry ingredients
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
Liquid mix
1 1/2 cups milk
3 tbsp shortening (or oil)
2 tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
mashed banana
  • Sift flour, measure and resift twice with the other dry ingredients.
  • Beat eggs, add liquid and stir in sifted dry ingredients.
  • Add melted shortening and mashed banana.
  • Continue beating all together with a rotary beater until the batter is free from lumps.
  • Bake on hot waffle iron until golden brown.
