Chocolate Banana Waffles for Dad

A Year in Chocolate:
Four Seasons of Unforgettable Desserts

by Alice Medrich, 2001, Warner Bros, Inc.


“My dad loves bananas – almost as much as he likes kippered
herring. Chocolate doesn’t go with herring, so here’s the
compromise I found that pleases everyone.”

serves 4 to 6

4 firm ripe bananas
10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) butter
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons
(packed) brown sugar
Splash of rum (optional)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder,
natural or Dutch process
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee powder
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup crème fraîche

Large skillet
Waffle iron

Cut the bananas in half lengthwise. Cut each half into 3 or 4 pieces. Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet. Sauté the banana pieces 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until tender and browned. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar, turn once more, and splash with rum, if using. Set aside and reheat when the waffles are ready.
In a medium bowl, mix the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and
salt. Set aside.
Melt the remaining 8 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the cocoa until smooth and hot. Gradually stir in the milk until smooth. Off
heat, whisk in the remaining 1/4 cup of brown sugar, coffee powder, egg,
and vanilla, stirring until the mixture is completely smooth. Pour the con-
tents of the saucepan over the flour mixture and stir until the dry ingredi-
ents are completely moistened.
Preheat the waffle iron. Make each waffle with 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter, cooking just until steam stops rising from the sides of the iron.
Either serve immediately topped with warm sautéed bananas and a dollop
of crème fraîche, or cool very briefly on a rack to crisp before serving. Waffles may also be made in advance, cooled on a rack, and reheated on
a cookie sheet in a 350-degree F oven for a few minutes before serving.
