  1. In a bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and ½ tsp salt. In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter, buttermilk and egg. Fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture, then mix until you have a smooth batter.
  2. Blitz the frozen bananas and milk in bursts in food processor, scraping down the sides in between, until you have
a thick, smooth ice cream. Transfer to a container and put in the freezer.

  3. Heat your waffle iron. Cook the batter in batches following the instructions, until crisp and golden. When you have 8 waffles, leave to cool for a few mins on a rack to prevent the ice cream from melting too quickly in the next step.
  4. When ready to serve, spread 1 tbsp each of peanut butter and jam over 4 waffles, then spoon a quarter of the banana ice cream onto each one. Scatter with the strawberries and extra banana slices, if using. Top with another waffle. Gently press the two waffles together and dust with a little icing sugar. Serve immediately.
