Banana Bread Waffles with Bourbon-Raisin Syrup
Waffles on the weekends are always a treat. Fluffy, tender my kids always request waffles on the weekends. Lucky me, waffles are a super tasty breakfast idea and with this recipe they are a snap. Seriously, today’s recipe could not be any easier and in less than 15 minutes you will be serving your family a piping-hot pile of delicious waffles.
I took a weekend shortcut and used banana bread box mix to make my waffles. All I simply had to add was mashed bananas, an egg and I was ready to ladle the batter on my preheated waffle griddle. Now, just because they are easy to make doesn’t mean they lack flavor or are not brunch worthy, these waffles are insane good. I’ve made waffles before using cake batter before, so this recipe is very similar.
I served up these waffles with a rich, warm syrup spiked with bourbon and plenty of juicy raisins. These waffles would be perfect for relaxing weekend breakfast, perfect for Valentine’s Day or even a great brunch item.
- For the waffles:
- 1 (13.7 oz) box of Chiquita Banana Bread Mix
- 1 cup mashed bananas, approx. 2
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup water
- For Bourbon-Raisin Syrup
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup Bourbon
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ½ cup Sun-Maid raisins
- For waffles: Pre-heat your waffle griddle. Stir contents of banana bread mix with mashed banana, egg and water until smooth. ladle batter on pre-heated waffle griddle and cook until golden and fully cooked, about 3-5 minutes. Serve warm with syrup.
- For Syrup: In a saucepan bring maple syrup and Bourbon to a boil. Reduce heat add raisins, butter and gently simmer until ready to serve.
