Waffle Goodness

Recently I have been accumulating some really great recipes and I am happy to share with you these yummy dishes and sweets.Not all in one day but week but week.
You know I love food and I love to eat so when I talk about food I light up and get really excited.  
 This morning I am going to share with you Banana Bread Waffles top with Banana Foster Sauce. Yup. You heard me right.
These things were inspired by our trip to the cape. They are out of this world yummy goodness. It’s a one-waffle-per-person kind of breakfast. Eat more than one and you’ll be waddling away from the table. Don’t say you weren’t warned. These babies are dense and heavy but oh-so-totally delicious. Let's just say these waffles are a much more interesting way to eat your banana bread. Topped with that Banana Foster syrup you are going to be in waffle heaven.

Waffle Ingredients
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch of ground clove
2 eggs, beaten lightly
1 cup mashed ripe banana, about 3 whole
2 tablespoons sour cream or greek yogurt

In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, milk and vanilla. Set aside, the mixture should be warm but not hot.
In a large mixing bowl, sift or whisk together the flour, brown sugar, yeast, salt and spices. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, whisking until smooth. Stir in the beaten eggs. Cover the bowl loosely with cling-film and refrigerate for at least 12 hours, but up to 24.
About 30 minutes before you want to make waffles, take the batter out of the refrigerator to come up to room temperature slightly. It should be doubled in size and the surface will be covered in bubbles.
When ready to begin, stir the sour cream into the mashed bananas and then mix the banana mix into the batter. It will deflate, but use a light, quick hand to thoroughly combine.
Heat your waffle iron and bake the waffles as per the manufacturer's instruction.

Syrup Topping: 

1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 bananas peeled and halved, cut lengthwise
Rum Extract from the baking area. I wouldn't use but 1-2 tablespoons at the most. Just pour to taste.

 Melt butter in a large skillet. Add brown sugar and stir together. Add rum extract and mix. Add the bananas and cook until caramelized over medium-high heat. Then Serve.
Enjoy this yummy goodness.
This morning words can not describe how thankful I am. I am not at liberty to discuss details but my husbands work has some changes going on and as of now he still has a job. So today I am very thankful.

Please pray for us and his job and that we continue to have strength through whatever God's plan is for us.
