Bananas Foster Pancakes


  • 9 prepared pancakes (you could make your own or use commercial ones like Aunt Jemima's, who sponsored the dinner)
  • 2 bananas sliced into 1/2 pieces
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum optional
  • 1/4 stick of butter chilled and cubed
  • powdered sugar optional


  • Heat a medium saute pan over medium heat.
  • Gently stir the brown sugar, orange juice, vanilla, cinnamon, and rum together.
  • Simmer until reduced by a third or when the sauce appears syrupy, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add bananas and stir for a minute until the bananas are well-coated.
  • Turn off the heat and add the chilled butter, stirring constantly until the butter is completely incorporated in the sauce.
  • Heat the pancakes and pour hot sauce over them.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
