    How To Make Banana Foster Pancakes

    Mix the sifted flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda in a deep bowl. Use a whisk to stir.

    Mixing dry ingredients in a bowl

    Pour the buttermilk into another bowl and add the eggs, vanilla extract, half of the cinnamon, and melted butter. Whisk.

    Mixing liquid ingredients in a separate bowl

    Now carefully pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir with a whisk until you get a thick homogeneous dough without lumps.

    Heat up the pan. Pour the batter into a large glass and pour a small amount onto the hot surface. Fry pancakes for 2 minutes over low heat.

    Sliced bananas and pecans on a plate

    Put sugar, ground cinnamon and butter in a saucepan. You can also add some coarse salt. Heat over low heat for a few minutes until you get caramel.

    Cooking caramel in a pot

    Place bananas and nuts in a saucepan, stir, and remove from heat.

    Mixing bananas and pecans with caramel

    Top the pancakes with the caramel sauce and serve warm.


    • Use a ripe banana. It’s softer and will soak up the sweet caramel sauce better.
    • Use brown cane sugar to make the sauce tastier.
    • To make pancake dough faster, you can use a hand mixer, especially if you’re making a large batch of these. If you don’t have much dough, then a hand whisk will do.
    • Try making salted caramel using coarse sea salt or salted butter. Besides pecans, by the way, any nuts will do. You can even use nut mix.
