French Banana Pancakes Recipe

These pancakes are a real breakfast favorite in our family. Even our 8- and 10-year-old daughters make them all by themselves when they have friends spend the night. Now their friends' mothers are asking for the recipe! —Cheryl Sowers, Bakersfield, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:5-6 servings

Ingredients

  • PANCAKES:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half cream
  • 5 to 6 firm bananas, halved lengthwise
  • Whipped cream and additional cinnamon, optional

Directions

  • 1. Sift flour and confectioners' sugar into a bowl. Add milk, eggs, butter, vanilla and salt; beat until smooth.
  • 2. Heat a lightly greased 6-in. skillet; add about 3 tablespoons batter, spreading to almost cover bottom of skillet. Cook until lightly browned; turn and brown the other side. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter (make 10-12 pancakes), greasing skillet as needed.
  • 3. For filling, melt butter in large skillet. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in cream and cook until slightly thickened. Add half of the bananas at a time to skillet; heat for 2-3 minutes, spooning sauce over them. Remove from the heat.
  • 4. Roll a pancake around each banana half and place on a serving platter. Spoon sauce over pancakes. Top with whipped cream and dash of cinnamon if desired. Yield: 5-6 servings.

"I love the filling but I would suggest less butter. When it cools a little it is easy to spot pools of butter separated from the cream. I guess the flavor won't suffer much if less butter is used."

"This recipe was really easy and also good. If you want a lighter version, use no sugar in the batter and soy/almond milk instead of milk."

"Wonderful! Short on time but wanting to try this, I made the filling and served it over waffles from the freezer. It was delicious! I didn't have half and half on hand so I used the 2% milk I had. Worked fine with fewer calories. I'm going to make the pancakes the day before Easter and reheat them while making the topping, making it a quick breakfast before church."

"I made this for my daughter for breakfast and she loved it! I used boxed pancake mix (just cuz I didnt have all ingred on hand) and spread the batter thin in the pan, it worked out great and easy to make. I didnt have half and half on hand either but used the same amount of evaporated milk and worked out great also. Thanks for sharing a great recipe, I will make it again!"
