The ultimate Sunday morning breakfast in bed! Gorgeous banana waffles, doused in sticky caramel sauce and topped with crunchy pecans.



  1. 3 eggs
  2. 1 3/4 cup milk
  3. 125g unsalted butter, melted
  4. 1 tsp Queen Organic Vanilla Bean Paste
  5. 2 cups self raising flour
  6. 1/4 cup brown sugar, plus 1/2 cup extra, to sprinkle
  7. 2 large bananas, thinly sliced
  8. 1/4 cup chopped, toasted pecans
  1. 300mls thickened cream
  2. 60g butter
  3. 3/4 cup brown sugar
  4. Optional: ice cream and chopped pecans, to serve


  1. Step 1

    Preheat Waffle maker. If using a Breville model, select CLASSIC setting and dial up 6 on the browning control dial. Preheat until orange light flashes up and the word HEATING disappears.

  2. Step 2

    Whisk together the eggs, milk, butter and vanilla in a jug and set aside.

  3. Step 3

    Combine flour and sugar in a large bowl, make a well in the centre and whisk in milk mixture to form a smooth batter.

  4. Step 4

    Pour just under ½ cup of batter into each waffle square. Sprinkle 1–2 teaspoons of brown sugar over each waffle square and top with 4 slices of banana. Close lid and cook until timer has finished and ready beep has sounded 3 times. Repeat with remaining batter, banana and sugar.

  5. Step 5

    To make caramel sauce, combine cream, butter and brown sugar into a small saucepan. Stir over medium heat and bring to the boil, reduce to low and simmer for 2–3 minutes or until thickened.

  6. Step 6

    To serve, drizzle over caramel sauce and top with ice cream and pecans, if desired.
