05Apr2013 Bananas Foster Waffles & Giveaway! #EggoWaffleOff A while ago I asked my fabulous Facebook fans to help me along with this Eggo challenge. I was not feeling the creativity that day, and boy did they give me some great ideas for waffles! I settled on fruit, specifically bananas because that’s what I had on hand. O.M.G. I’m not even sure how I could put into words these waffles were. I had once used rum extract in a copycat Butterbeer recipe and man, that was a total recipe FAIL. In this recipe, though. Don’t skip the rum extract, it totally brings the sauce to a new level! This is an amazing dessert, you need to try it this weekend! Bananas Foster Waffles adapted from All Recipes 4 Eggo Homestyle waffles, toasted 1/4 cup butter 2/3 cup brown sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 teaspoon rum extract 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 cup chopped pecans 1/2 cup pancake syrup 3 bananas, cut into 1/2 inch slices Breyers vanilla bean ice cream Melt butter over medium heat in a saucepan. Stir in brown sugar, vanilla, rum extract, and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer, then stir in pecans and syrup and continue simmering for about 1 minute. Stir in bananas and cook for 4 minutes, or until bananas are soft. Remove from heat, cool slightly. To serve, pour bananas and sauce over waffle and top with a scoop of Breyers ice cream. Serve immediately (makes 4 servings). I actually stacked two waffles and Silas and I shared. So fun and SO delicious!
