Bananas Foster Waffles

Today we shared a wonderful brunch with Friends of Food.  I apologize for the lack of imagery, but we were way too busy eating and wrangling tiny tots for that.  What I will share with you was the hit of the meal, Waffles with Banana Sauce, which I will call Bananas Foster Sauce.

We were off to a rocky start with the Waffles since I have no practical experience with our waffle iron.  I recklessly dove right in and learned a few valuable tips after destroying the first Waffle (forever after to be known as Waffle Bits) and mucking up the iron.

1. Use Oil Spray on the Waffle Iron.  That one I kind of knew, but forgot in my rush to waffle.
2. More batter is better than less batter.  You need enough to really fill those squares.
3. Wait until the little light on top of the waffle maker goes off before opening the iron.

Husband of Food is the master waffler and I am in his debt for making the rest of the perfectly good waffles once he cleaned out the mess I had made.

I did kick butt in the Banana Sauce department.  OK, I used a whole stick of butter, and anything tastes good when you use a stick of butter, but this simple sauce was well worth the hours of exercise I am going to do this week.

Here is the recipe for Waffles and Bananas Foster Sauce

For the Waffles

1 3/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 TBSP Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 Cup of Light Brown Sugar
2 Egg Yolks
1 3/4 Cups Milk
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
2 Egg Whites

In a large bowl mix together Flour, Baking Powder, Brown Sugar and Salt.
In a medium bowl beat Egg Yolks with a fork.  Beat in Milk, and Oil.
Add the Yolk Mixture to the Flour Mixture all at once.
Stir Mixture until blended but still slightly lumpy.
In a small bowl beat Egg Whites until stiff peaks form, I used my Kitchen-Aid mixer for this.
Gently Fold in Beaten Egg Whites to the Flour-Milk Mixture, leaving a few fluffs of Egg White.
Do not over mix.

Pour Batter onto preheated Waffle Iron.  Follow the tips Husband of Food gave above.

For the Bananas Foster Sauce

2 Ripe Medium Bananas, sliced
1  Stick of Butter cut into pieces
1/4 Cup of Light Brown Sugar
2 TBSPs of Light Rum

Melt Butter in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat.
Add Brown Sugar and cook, whisking until smooth and well mixed.
Add Bananas and Rum and stir with the whisk for a few minutes more.
Remove from heat and serve on top of waffles.

I dοn't comment, however after reading a bunch of comments on this page "Bananas Foster Waffles". I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or does it look as if like a few of the comments appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list of all of your social community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
