    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.
