Anyways - let's get back to the breakfast: Chocolate Banana Waffle Napoleon. Layers of waffles, banana slices, whipped cream and melted chocolate. It really was sinfully delicious and very easy to make. I wish I could eat a breakfast like this every morning!
Chocolate Banana Waffle Napoleon recipe: adapted from Martha Stewart - Living
Ingredients: Serves 2
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups buttermilk
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- Vegetable-oil cooking spray
- 1 large banana, sliced ¼ inch thick
- ½ cup melted bittersweet chocolate (3 ounces)
- Whipped cream (optional)
- Heat a Belgian-style waffle iron. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in buttermilk, melted butter, and eggs until smooth. The batter will be thick.
- Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Ladle about 1/4 cup batter into each section of the waffle grid; spread batter almost to the edges. Close lid; bake 3 minutes, until no steam emerges from waffle iron.
- Transfer cooked waffles to a baking sheet; place in an oven set to low heat, about 200 degrees, while using the remaining batter.
- Split waffles in half. Place a half on each of two plates. Spoon one-quarter of the banana slices over each waffle half. Top with whipped cream and remaining waffle halves. Spoon another one-quarter of the banana mixture over waffles. Dust each with confectioners' sugar and then drizzle with chocolate.
