How to make it
- Waffles: Use 2 waffle irons -- 1 regular and 1 heart-shaped.
- Spray each waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray before heating.
- In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix, egg, oil, and club soda.
- Sprinkle heavily with bacon bits and bake in waffle irons until golden brown and slightly crispy.
- Note: The club soda doesn't permit the batter to be stored, but this recipe freezes very well. Also, you can keep one batch hot on top of the iron while preparing a second batch.
- French Pecan-Praline Cream Topping:
- Combine dessert topping, pecan-praline liquid mix, and powdered sugar and mix together.
- Pan-fried Apples and Bananas:
- Sprinkle both sides of fruit well with cinnamon.
- Saute over medium heat.
- Maple-Peach Syrup:
- To every 1/2 cup of your favorite Maple syrup, add 1/2 cup of homemade or favorite peach jam or preserves. Mix well and heat in microwave until bubbly.
- Plate Arrangement:
- Arrange waffles like a butterfly on plate.
- Top with hot Maple-Peach syrup. Arrange pan-fried bananas and apples at top in "head" area. Top with French-Praline Cream. Create the lower "body" part of butterfly out of heart-shaped waffles and top with fresh bananas. Dribble the strawberries over entire waffles. Using a sifter, sift powdered sugar generously over the entire plate.
- Yield: 8 to 10 small sections of 3- to 4-inch regular or heart-shaped waffles
