Blueberry waffles with banana and maple bacon

Serves: 6
Cooking Time: 1 hr


  • 300g cake flour
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) sugar
  • 20ml (4 tsp) baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 450ml full-cream milk
  • 125ml (½ cup) sunflower oil
  • 200g fresh blueberries
  • butter/oil, to grease
  • 12 rashers streaky bacon
  • 100ml maple syrup
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 100g pecan nuts, toasted and roughly chopped



Preheat the waffle iron and preheat the oven to 200°C on the grill setting.


Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, milk and oil and slowly add to the dry ingredients, whisking continuously, to form a smooth batter. Fold in the blueberries.


Grease the preheated waffle iron, pour in the batter and cook until golden brown, 3 – 5 minutes.


Place the bacon on a baking tray, drizzle over half of the maple syrup and place under the grill until golden and crisp, 5 – 10 minutes.


Top the waffles with the maple bacon, slices of banana and pecan nuts. Drizzle over the remaining syrup and serve.


Cook's tip: Use frozen blueberries (defrosted) if fresh blueberries are not available.
