Hey it's Friday the 13th.  I love Friday the 13th mostly because I can usually find a Jason (Friday the 13th) movie marathon on TV and I love slasher/any horror films.  Tonight is even more special because it's also a full moon.  That means even more strange things may happen tonight...cool.

Anyway...

I had never had bananas foster before this breakfast.  I thought of the idea when I saw someone make crepes with bananas foster, on another blog.  I decided it would also be good on pancakes.  I searched online for bananas foster recipes and found a general consensus of brown sugar, butter, bananas, and dark rum.  The amounts all varied depending on how many servings the recipe made so I just made a small batch for two.  The pancakes can be your favorite recipe I used my whole wheat pancakes to make this a little bit healthier (and they are my favorite). It was good but I still prefer maple syrup on my pancakes.  I wonder if you could do all of this in maple syrup....hmm I've got something new to try (but my husband hates warm maple syrup; maybe it would be ok in this instance).

Bananas Foster Pancakes


Ingredients:

1 recipe of Whole Wheat Pancakes
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
4 small bananas, sliced thick
1 oz dark rum
toasted pecans, chopped

Bananas Foster Pancakes:  Whole wheat pancakes topped with sweet bananas in syrup.

Make pancakes according to directions.  Set aside to keep warm.

Meanwhile heat a skillet over medium heat.  Add the butter and brown sugar mixing until it becomes syrupy and starts to bubble.

Add the bananas to they syrup and stir to coat well then add the dark rum and flambe.  I just lit the rum with a long lighter and stood back until the flame died (be careful make sure there is nothing flammable near your stove).  You probably don't have to flambe this just let it cook for a few minutes to burn off the alcohol but it's so much fun.

Pour bananas and syrup over pancakes, top with chopped pecans, and serve.

Makes 2-3 servings.

Enjoy.
