We love Banana fosters and we love pancakes. Put those together and you have a love affair. The first time we had these our friend Griff made them for us at the beach. This was such a treat.
2 cups baking mix
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 tablespoon of vanilla
Mix all ingredients until blended. Pour about a ¼ cup onto hot greased pan. Cook until edges are golden and pancake mix is bubbling. Turn and cook until golden brown.
1 stick butter
¾ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup banana liqueur
6 bananas cut in half lengthwise, then halved
¼ cup dark rum
Ice Cream or whipped cream (optional but reccomended)
Combine the butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a skillet.
Place the pan over low heat on top of the stove, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
Stir in the banana liqueur, and then place the bananas in the pan.
When the banana sections soften and begin to brown, carefully add the rum. Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot, and then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum (if using a gas stove).
When the flame goes down, lift the bananas out of the pan and place four pieces over each pancake. Generously spoon the warm sauce over the top of the pancakes and top with ice cream or whipped cream if you dare.
