Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly, plus more for the waffle iron
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  • Warmed honey, sliced bananas and chopped peanuts, for serving
Directions
  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, apple pie spice and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the buttermilk and eggs in a medium bowl until well blended and then whisk in the melted butter, vanilla and mashed banana. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and stir until just combined with a few lumps. Set aside for 10 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high. Lightly brush the top and bottom of the waffle iron with butter.

  • Fill each waffle indent about three-quarters full. Close the lid gently and cook until the waffle is golden brown and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Repeat with additional butter and the remaining batter, keeping the cooked waffles warm in the oven until ready to serve.

  • Serve the waffles topped with warmed honey, sliced banana and chopped peanuts.

Cook's Note: When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off the excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)
