Bananas Foster Belgian Waffles & starbucks giveaway {closed}

I have reached my first facebook milestone, I have 100+ likes!!! That may sound silly to those of you with 3,000 likes…but I am a happy camper today!

To show my appreciation for all of the wonderful “friends” that like my page, I am holding a Facebook Friends/Fan Only Giveaway for a $10 Starbucks Gift Card!

Update: the winner of the Starbucks Gift Card is Sharon Shapiro.  Congratulations, and thank you for entering!

All you have to do is; go to and click on the New Tab 1 Nuclear looking button that is next to the pinterest button!  I did not sign up for the $30/month plan, so they are apparently not going to let me change the name of the button, but I’m sure all of you can figure it out:)

When I first posted that I had hit 100 and we should party, I asked what kind of party we should have?  Marlene from Nosh My Way suggested breakfast recipes.  I was already planning on posting these waffles today, and as it turns out, she had posted Frozen Mocha Malted on her site!  The stars had aligned… was obviously meant to be!  Now I realize that Starbucks is not officially breakfast, but I cannot mail breakfast to the winner…..and some of us like mochas for breakfast 🙂

Now for the yummy waffles.  Remember my friend Carrie over at Frugal Foodie Mama?  Well she created an awesome Homemade Belgian Waffle Mix that you prepare and store until you are ready to make your waffles.  I had to give it a try…..and you know what…..they were awesome!  I will let you go over to Carrie’s site to get the recipe to create the mix, but I will show you how I made my waffles below.  First I need to show you Carrie’s photo, that’s when I knew that I had to make them.  Don’t they look yummy…..





















As for the Bananas Foster sauce on top, that was just a whim.  Every day on pinterest seemed to have photos of something with “bananas foster” in the title.  Cupcakes, pancakes, muffins, but I didn’t see any waffles.  I already knew that I wanted to make waffles, so there you have it…Bananas Foster Belgian Waffles!

Now I do have to caution you, these babies contain alcohol. If you would like to burn more of the alcohol off, then use a long lighter, you know the fireplace kind, and light the sauce on fire…..carefully!

Disclaimer: Cooking with Curls will not be held responsible for you burning down your kitchen, or lighting your hair on fire.  Please wait until after breakfast to spray the Aqua Net all over your hair!

Bananas Foster Belgian Waffles

I did have to make a change when I made my mix.  I ran out of all-purpose flour, so I used 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour.  They turned out just fine even with the changes 🙂  The coconut milk that I used in this recipe is different than the coconut milk in the can.  The can type of coconut milk is perfect as a substitute for heavy cream. The coconut milk “beverage” in the box, is a great substitute for whole milk in recipes…..



























It is thicker than almond or rice milk, and no, it does not taste like coconut! (and no, I do not know why there are huge space gaps).

So click on over to facebook and enter my contest before Friday, May 3rd at midnight.  Then click on over to Frugal Foodie Mama to get the Homemade Waffle Mix recipe.  No you’re not done yet, head on over to Nosh My Way and check out the Frozen Mocha Malted.  All of that traveling will surely burn off all of those calories that are in the waffles…’re welcome 🙂

    Congratulations on 100 likes! That is very exciting and much deserved. These waffles look delicious. I have a waffle iron that I have only used 2-3 times. Maybe I will pull it out to try this recipe!

    Wow, they look amazing! I love bananas foster-I had it for the first time a couple of years when we went to Disneyland for a family holiday. I will be trying this version for sure!

    If you have a minute to spare I’d be thrilled if you could share this recipe at my Say G’Day linky party! It’s on now and this would be a great addition.

    Best wishes,
