Bananas Foster Waffles

Serves 4

For the waffles:

2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1 ½ tsp. vegetable oil
¼ cup egg whites
¾ cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt

For the Bananas Foster topping:

6 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
6 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup dark rum

Preheat the waffle iron.

In a large bowl, combine the bananas, oil, egg whites, milk and vanilla and beat until well blended.  Add the flour, baking powder, salt and mix well.

Cook waffles according to manufacturer’s instructions.   Set cooked waffles in a warm oven while making the topping.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the brown sugar and stir until the sugar completely dissolves, about 2 minutes. Lay the bananas in the pan and cook on both sides until they become slightly soft and begin to brown, about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add the rum. Tip the pan slightly and carefully ignite the alcohol with a long kitchen match or kitchen lighter to flambé. Put the pan back on the heat and shake it back and forth basting the bananas, until the flame dies out.  Spoon over the waffles and serve immediately.
