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.
Thanks to Lauren for hosting this week's recipe! You can find the recipe on her blog here or pick up the book.
