Bananas Foster for Belgian Waffles

I think I may have mention that I got a Warning Pro Belgian Waffle Maker for Christmas. It’s fabulous! It makes a really good crispy, golden waffle.

But, when it comes to toppings, I wanted to start playing around with different recipes because as much as I love maple syrup, it gets boring. Here is a simple  bananas foster that I whipped up the last time I made them.

It takes minutes to make, and is not too sweet, so it lets the banana flavor come through. Just be careful when you add the rum because it can bubble up quickly. You will also notice I don’t do anything fancy like use a lighter to make the dish flame — very frankly, I wanted something quick and easy, so I skipped that.

Bananas Foster for Belgian Waffles
by Michelle Maskaly, The Adirondack Chick 
2 ripe bananas sliced
2 tablespoons butter 
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg {increase to 1/2 teaspoon for added flavor}
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon rum

In a medium size pot melt the butter. Add the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir and cook until the sugar is mostly dissolved. Mix in the tablespoon of rum and stir for a few seconds.

Gently fold in the bananas, making sure they are getting fully coated. Cook for about a minute — just until the bananas are warm and coated.

Remove the bananas from the pot and add the remainder of your rum to the sauce. {Be careful with this part!}

The burner with the bananas isn’t lit, I just put it there, because it was the only free spot.

Cook the sauce over a medium to low heat until you reach your desired consistency and then pour it over the bananas.

Spoon over the waffles and enjoy!
