Bananas Foster Pancakes make a beautiful and sweet breakfast idea to share with someone special this upcoming Valentine’s Day! These soft and fluffy banana buttermilk pancakes topped with bananas foster sauce!
Pancakes are a common breakfast around here. Boys love pancakes and it’s pretty quick and easy for me to make. Since I make it so often, I like to play around with different flavors. There are so many different pancakes variations I’ve made through the years, some even made it on the blog. Yeap, only some! Can’t be posting pancakes every week now, can I?!
Last week, I got a great thought to make a sweet pancake breakfast that would be perfect for sharing. Hubby was excited about these pancakes because he could probably live on pancakes alone and he loves bananas foster. Little man wasn’t too excited because he doesn’t like banana but it’s ok, I made him his own (throw some chocolate chips in there and he is happy). These pancakes turned out to be one of the best ones I’ve made so far! Perfect flavor combination!
If you are a bit sick of everything pink, red and chocolate, then you will agree with me that it would make a very special breakfast for someone you love!
