Recipe: Bananas Foster Waffles

Believe it or not, I thought of this recipe after finding the picture and seeing the title and thought… wow… I have to make this…. The picture was deep in a photo album on a site I was looking at… so there wasn’t a recipe… so I just combined a classic Bananas Foster recipe with waffles and voila!

Just make your favorite waffles and use the sauce recipe…oh… and by the way… there is absolutely nothing wrong with ice cream for breakfast… is it not dairy??!

This recipe ignites the pan….and uses quite a bit of alcohol ….banana liqueur and dark rum… but remember the alcohol is burned off…. but…. I will publish another version that uses only a little alcohol and doesn’t ignite for those of you that prefer not to handle a flambé.

All I can say… this is sinfully good!

Bananas Foster Waflle Recipe

All you need:

Vanilla ice cream
¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup banana liqueur
4 bananas, sliced
¼ cup dark rum
Powdered sugar
Whipped cream

All you need to do:

Combine the butter, sugar and cinnamon in a skillet. Place the pan over low heat.
Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves.

Stir in banana liqueur.

Add bananas to the pan.

When the bananas soften and begin to brown, carefully add the rum.

Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot.

Then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum.

When the flames subside, take the bananas out of the pan and place on the waffles.

Place 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream on each waffle.

Spoon the warm sauce on top of the ice cream and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered sugar.
