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!
BANANAS FOSTER PANCAKES
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!

Bananas Foster Pancakes
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 3 Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup low fat buttermilk
- 1 ripe banana chopped
- 2 bananas sliced
- 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp dark rum
- 3 Tbsp banana liqueur
- Pancakes: Whisk together the wet pancake ingredients until combined.
- Whisk in the dry ingredients until smooth and mix in the bananas. Let the batter stand for about 10 minutes. (This is a good time to preheat your cooking pan on medium heat and start the topping.)
- Cook the pancakes, in the preheated pan, for about a minute or two on each side. Check the pancakes by pressing lightly in the center, if its firm the pancakes are done.
- In a separate pan, make the bananas foster.
- Bananas Foster: In a medium pan, melt butter on medium-high heat, add sugar and stir well. Add banana slices and saute for about a minute. Add the rum and liquor, saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring often.
- Top off the pancakes with warm bananas foster.
What could I use as a substitute for the dark rum and banana liqueur to make it non alcoholic?
Bananas Foster is typically made with alcohol. I can recommend using banana and rum baking extracts for similar flavor but in much smaller amount. May be try adding some pure maple syrup to make up for the lost amount of liquids too. Good luck, sorry I wasn’t too much help 🙂
