This recipe comes from Williams-Sonoma. It is delicious for brunch or scale the servings down to serve 8 for dessert. My addition to this recipe is using green tipped bananas. They are firmer and will hold their shape when cooked. I also tossed in the pecans and have listed them as optional.
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 3⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 3⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 cup dark rum (optional) or 1⁄4 teaspoon rum extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 bananas, green tipped, peeled and cut diagnoally into 1/2 inch slices
- 1⁄4 cup pecans, coarse chopped (optional)
- 4 large waffles, warmed
- sweetened whipped cream
- In a large saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter with the maple syrup; stir in cinnamon, rum if using and vanilla; simmer 1 minute.
- Add the sliced bananas to the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
- With a slotted spoon, remove the bananas from the syrup mixture and place in a serving dish.
- Sprinkle the pecans over the syrup and allow to warm and glaze.
- Pour the syrup and pecan mixture over the bananas and stir gently.
- Serve immediately over warmed waffles and top with whipped cream.
GREAT TASTING Waffles !! I did use the rum extract, though. Loved the addition of the cinnamon too, and so easy to prepare too. Made for a perfect breakfast for the 4 of us. Made with Upside-Down Banana-Walnut French Toast, and made for a great combo. Made for Recipe Swap 42.
Absolutely fabulous! I made it just as written and used the bananas to top buckwheat pancakes. The hearty pancakes were perfect with this delicious and flavorful topping:-)
I made this for our Sat. supper, and put it on French Toast. I cooked the maple syrup and butter with cinnamon no rum flavouring, and added the bananas and cooked only two minutes, then removed, I was afraid that they would go mushy. This made with the nuts and maple syrup is a lot better than the one my grandma makes with brown sugar. She said we will make this recipe always from now on. Who knew you would teach my grandma to cook better than she already does. Thanks for the good recipe, my brother loved it too, he eats a lot of waffles and pancakes.
