This is one of those recipes that just sounds like heaven on a fork… well if you are a banana person that is…. hope you enjoy!!!
Banana Pancakes with Caramel-Banana Syrup
3 large bananas, peeled, divided use
1/2 cup butter, melted, divided
3/4 cup brown sugar, tightly packed, divided use
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
Additional melted butter
For syrup, slice 2 of the bananas into 1/4″-rounds. Combine 1/4 cup melted butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 cup water in a large skillet. Over medium-high heat, boil the banana mixture until it begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and sliced bananas.
Whisk flour and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a large bowl. In a separate medium-sized bowl, mash remaining banana. Add buttermilk and eggs and whisk until thoroughly combined. Stir banana mixture into the flour mixture just until combined. A few lumps will remain. Add remaining melted butter and gently stir until incorporated.
Preheat griddle to medium-high heat and brush the griddle with additional melted butter. Drop batter by 1/3-cupfuls onto heated griddle and cook until pancakes are golden, about 2 minutes per side. Pancakes can be kept warm on a baking sheet in a preheated 200-degree oven.
Serve with warm caramel-banana syrup.
