Pecan Waffles With Bananas

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup pecans, toasted & finely chopped
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup well-shaken buttermilk
8 Tablespoon butter, melted
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3 large firm-ripe bananas
3/4 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 250? and preheat waffle iron. Whisk together flour, pecans,
baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in buttermilk, 6 tablespoons butter, and
egg until smooth; batter will be thick. Spoon batter into waffle iron, using half of
batter for 4 standard waffles and spreading batter evenly. Cook according to
manufacturer's instructions. Transfer waffles to a baking sheet and keep warm,
uncovered, in middle of oven. Make more waffles in same manner. Halve
bananas crosswise and then lengthwise. Roll bananas in sugar to coat. Heat
remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over moderately-high
heat until foam subsides, then saute bananas, starting with cut sides down and
turn once, until golden brown. Transfer bananas with a spatula to an oiled
baking sheet, and cool slightly. Put 4 waffles on 4 plates and divide bananas
among them. Top bananas with remaining waffles. Serve on warm plates.
