See for yourself:
I’ve always been a pancakes for breakfast kind of gal, but like brownies, I usually prefer my pancakes to be plain without anything mixed in. Instead, I choose to focus on what goes on top of the pancake to make it unique and different.
Aside from maple, my three favorite syrups are this Creamy Buttermilk Syrup, Eggnog Syrup and finally, Creamy Chocolate Syrup. I’m a firm believer that although pancakes are awesome themselves, it is what accompanies the pancakes that makes them even better. I’m constantly trying to up my pancake topping game.
Well, I think I may have hit pancake nirvana with Bananas Foster Pancakes. My husband has been on a bit of a Bananas Foster kick lately… making it as often as he can for dessert at night. One morning, I was looking at some ripe bananas and I thought…. if the mixture Bananas Foster is made up of is so good on ice cream, I wonder what it would taste like on pancakes?
I’m here to tell you, again… it’s pancake nirvana. It’s “get all your calories out of the way for the day at breakfast and not care a bit” kind of good. These pancakes are indulgent, rich and the most delicious start to your day you could possibly imagine. Don’t take it from me… try it out for yourself! Enjoy!
Bananas Foster Pancakes by Dine & Dish
- 1 Batch of your favorite pancakes (we prefer this recipe)
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup, packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup dark rum
- 2 bananas, peeled and sliced into “coins”
- 1 pinch of Cinnamon
- In a cast iron or heavy skillet with a long handle, melt butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar and stir. Add cream, and bananas and stir until mixture is thick and bubbly, 1-2 minutes.
- *Use Extreme Caution In This Step* Pour in rum and stir to combine. Using a long lighter, tip the pan towards the open flame (away from your body) until the alcohol in the pan ignites. The mixture will flame for 30 seconds or so then should die down on its own.
- Once the flame has been eliminated, remove the pan from the heat and stir in cinnamon.
- Top cooked pancakes with Bananas Foster mixture while it is still warm. Enjoy!
Thanks for bringing these pancakes to the party, Kristen! I’m a little scared I’ll light my hair on fire…but I can’t wait to try them!
