Waffles with Banana and Rum Caramel Sauce

This is a deliciously sweet breakfast treat, it makes for the perfect weekend breakfast. When time permits we like to make our own waffles as well, store bought waffles just don’t taste as good as their homemade counterparts (see “Our Alterations”). The origin of this recipe is left to be debated, but we found this beautiful version at Australian Good Taste and the waffles are a pretty standard recipe that can be found just about anywhere but we got ours from Food Network

Step 1

Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (to keep cooked waffles warm). Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the milk, butter, shortening and eggs in another bowl. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and gently stir until just incorporated (it’s okay if there are some lumps).

Step 5

Lightly brush the top and bottom of the waffle iron with butter. Fill the waffle iron about three-quarters of the way full (some waffle iron should still be showing). Close the lid gently and cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp, 6 to 7 minutes. Keep the cooked waffles warm in the oven or covered with foil on a plate while you make the remaining waffles.
