Banana Bread Waffles

I love banana bread and I love waffles. So it made perfect sense to me to find this recipe over at Annie's Eats where the two were married into breakfast bliss. Hubs told me he thought that these tasted like he knows what potpourri tastes like is beyond me! But he could not be more wrong! I think he was just intimidated and thrown off by so many spices in a waffle. The only waffle he's ever known is the plain jane waffle with no spices.

This waffle is soooo delicious! It was such a nice change of pace from the regular waffle, it had a distinct banana bread flavor to it that just warmed me from the inside out! Topped with some maple syrup and banana slices....mmmmmm! Heaven! What a great change in pace to start off the day!


...4 T. butter, melted
...1 c. plus 2 T. warm milk
...1 tsp. vanilla
...2 c. flour
...1 T. brown sugar
...1 1/2 tsp. yeast
...1/2 tsp. cinnamon
...1/4 tsp. nutmeg
...1/8 tsp. ground clove
...1/8 tsp. ginger
...2 eggs, lightly beaten
...3 ripe bananas, mashed (you know. those ones that are really brown and hanging out in your freezer!)
...2 T. sour cream


In a small bowl, wisk together the butter, milk and vanilla. Set the bowl aside, and in a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, yeast and spices. Once the dry ingredients are well combined, stir in the wet ingredients until everything is moistened. Wisk in the egg until it is well incorporated. Cover with the bowl and refrigerate for a minimum of 12 hours and up to 24 hours. When you are ready to cook the waffles, remove from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. This will cause the batter to double in size and have little bubbles on the surface. Stir in the mashed bananas and sour cream, wisking lightly. Cook in a preheated waffle iron until cooked through, about 4 minutes.

Potpourri is a funny way to describe flavor :). I can tell I'd love these, the aroma and taste of the spices makes it such a nice morning treat!
