i think it must be my instinctive surge toward waffles. the ones i make at home are quite healthy - bran and whipped bananas and stuff (and brandy and ...) but the ones at the Ex ... <slobber>

whipped bananas? *all kinda images runnin' through my head on that one!* *L*

How do you whip 'em up? You must mix 'em with stuff...otherwise I imagine them to just be rather gloppy?

I luvs bananas!

I hang onto a couple of bananas til they're fairly soft, then use my multipractic to liquefy them. i use the liquefied bananas to replace some of the liquid in the recipe, replace some of the flour with bran (about a quarter cup usually) ... and toss in a capful or two of brandy. The banana bran waffles are pheeeeeenomenal with toasted pecans and whatever other stuff you like on waffles. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Whisky was the secret ingredient a friend of mrs. hamburger's taught me about. It seems the alcohol helps with the rising action from the eggs etc. I'm not really a drinking type either, caprice. I buy a mickey of Remy Red (brandy) or Peach Schnapps, or something similar, about every 18 months - it's for baking only. The brandy/schnapps are also nice for soaking dried fruit in before putting them into muffins or breads.

The brandy is not a necessary part of the recipe, but the waffles will be a bit less light and fluffy without the alcohol. In terms of flavour, you could just toss in a shotglass of cranberry juice to your sweet waffle batter.

peach schnaps in the muffins ? no wonder i'm so relaxed after having one of them. i've got to watch it, next time we are into toronto "no muffins before getting in to the car to drive back home" ! i understand some italian housewifes like putting a bit of mariujana seed into the batter; supposed to "spice it up"; personally i like poppyseeds in the batter. poppy-seed cake (mohn-kuchen) is one of my favourites. in german the expression "mohn-doof" is used about someone who is acting slow and stupidly (a bit high and absent-minded). hbg

just checked on the origin of the word "mohn-doof" . "in the good old days" small children were often given a spoonfull of poppyseed (wrapped in a piece of cloth) to suck on -kept them nicely quiet ! (note to self : must remember). hbg

growing up in hawaii, you get used to seeing tofu everywhere. in addition to the above, i like to just cube it, add chopped green onions, grated ginger, and sprinkle soy sauce over the top and eat.
