Anstellgut waffle batter

Main wafer batter

  • Mash the bananas. Stir into the topping along with the eggs, salt and cinnamon.

Bake waffles

  • Heat the waffle iron to the second highest setting. Brush with butter or oil and place a ladle of the dough in the middle. Close the lid and bake for about 2 minutes. Take out and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Final remark

  • Anyone who cultivates their own sourdough always has something left over. I don't want to throw that away. I am always looking for solutions to use it sensibly. This is the latest proposed solution with the positive effect at coffee hour. The idea for the recipe is based on asparagus gratineé with spelled sourdough waffles and salmon, transformed into a slightly sweet variant.
