The George Foreman that we registered for and received is amazing. It practically does everything except my laundry. It's so much better than my old single gal apartment version. If you're in the market for an appliance, it's the George Foreman G5, and then you can get rid of your griddle, panini maker, waffle iron, etc. It's the best.
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup to 1 cup (1/2 to 2 sticks) butter, melted (I used 1 stick of butter.)
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk (I used light buttermilk.)
Preheat a waffle iron. Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Thoroughly blend eggs, butter, and milk in another bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Combine with a few swift strokes of the whisk.
While last batch is cooking, heat 2 tbsp butter in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides, then add 1-2 bananas, sliced, in 1 layer and cook until golden, about 1 minute per side. Remove from heat and add syrup to skillet.
Spoon bananas over waffles, then drizzle with warm syrup before serving.
We sprinkled the tops with cinnamon.
