Banana Bread Waffles With Cinnamon- Brown Sugar Syrup

Banana Bread Waffles with Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Syrup

We have had a very low-key, lazy few days here in Nebraska.  The weather has been rainy which gives us a good excuse to just be indoors and CHILL!  I have loved it.  It is a holiday weekend, and also the weekend where my kids are on a high from getting out of school for the summer, so I decided to make something a bit sweet and celebratory for breakfast yesterday.

I went straight to my Breakfast Pinterest Boards and happened upon this Banana Bread Waffle recipe from A Kitchen Addiction, and it sounded just perfect.  A treat, yet hearty enough to fill up tummies, especially when adding fruit and an egg to round out the breakfast.  It smelled absolutely divine while I was cooking it, warming up this house on a rainy day.

 My girls were delighted, especially with the oowy, goowy syrup.  I tweaked the original recipe a bit.  When I read through the ingredients I thought…”oh this is gonna be good…how can I make it even better?”  Since I was already making something sugary and out of the ordinary around here, why not make it extra scrumptious?  The ingredients in the syrup reminded me of cinnamon rolls, so I decided to add butter which would make it very much like the filling of a cinnamon roll.  It was to die for!  We ended up dipping our apples in it, too!

Enjoy…just not too often!

Cinnamon- Brown Sugar Syrup
Yield: about 1 cup

3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter ( I use Earth Balance)
2/3 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

Additional bananas for garnish, optional

1. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  In a small bowl, whisk together bananas, melted butter, eggs, milk and vanilla extract until well-combined.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.

2. In a small saucepan, whisk together brown sugar & butter until butter melts.  Add water, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching.  When mixture reaches a boil, turn heat to low, add vanilla, and stir occasionally until ready to serve.

3. Pour 1/3-1/2 cup of batter (depending on the size of your waffle maker) onto hot, greased waffle maker.  Cook to your desired crispness.

4. Serve with warm cinnamon-brown sugar syrup and additional banana slices, if desired.
