This week’s SMS was chosen by Lauren of Fried Pickles & Ice Cream: raised waffles with warm brown sugar bananas. These yeasted waffles take a bit of planning as the batter must be made and left to sit overnight before they can be cooked. I’m actually a big fan of waffles but I rarely have the motivation to make them normally. I might make an exception for these waffles though. I thought they were really good – crisp on the outside and tender inside!
I didn’t have bananas on hand for the warm brown sugar topping so I substituted apples. I also left out the rum the recipe called for. I found that I actually preferred the waffles without this topping. I have a major sweet tooth but the topping was just too sweet and sugary for me. I froze most of my extra waffles and found they were perfect when I toasted them and topped them with just maple syrup.
