Banana-Pecan Waffles with Brunost

Banana-Pecan Waffles with Brunost
Yields 2
Made by slowly and carefully caramelizing milk, cream, and whey over several hours, Brunost cheese is fudge-like with a slight sweetness. Two versions of this traditional Norwegian dairy staple, Ski Queen and Caramore, are readily available stateside; they add a perfect layer of complex sweetness to breakfast dishes like French toast or waffles. Shaved onto these waffles, the cheese adds a slightly tangy layer with brown-butter flavors that play off sweet bananas and crunchy pecans.
  1. 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 tablespoon sugar
  3. ½ teaspoon baking powder
  4. ½ teaspoon baking soda
  5. ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  6. ¼ teaspoon salt
  7. ¾ small banana, mashed
  8. 2 eggs
  9. 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  10. 1 cup buttermilk
  11. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  12. ½ cup finely chopped pecans
  13. 3-6 thin slices Brunost cheese (Ski Queen or Caramore)
  1. ► Heat nonstick Belgian or standard waffle iron.
  2. ► Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. ► With a fork, mix the banana and eggs in medium-size bowl. Beat in butter, buttermilk, vanilla and pecans.
  4. ► Make well in center of flour mixture. Add banana mixture to well, stirring quickly, until just blended.
  5. ► Coat waffle iron with cooking spray. Spoon a slightly-rounded ⅓-cup batter per 4-inch waffle onto hot iron, quickly spreading to cover entire surface. Cook per waffle maker’s instructions.
  6. ► Using a knife, shave several thin slices off a block of Ski Queen or Caramore. While waffles are warm, top each with 1-2 slices. Serve immediately.
