Banana Pancakes With Caramel-Banana Syrup

"How many more sleeps until school ?" that what my little kid keeps asking me every days, the whole holiday. Yeah we have 2 weeks break, after 2 months school time. School programs are in full swing and Nadia (my younger daughter; 5,6 yo) settled in extremely well. She is in prep school, and so excited about it all. She makes friends very quick even with her older sister's friends.

As we don't have plan for trip, kids quite busy at backyard. Cleaning backyard is such fun for them ^____^ , not to mention the dirts on their clothes, and even I found some small rocks on little one's hair before shampoo. Other activity is just simply play in local playground, they were showing off their new skills.

And now... 3 more sleeps before school, sweety.. ^____^

Their most favorite breakfast during holiday is this pancake, on school day I'd never make time to make this, as I always prepare their lunch box.

The syrup was simple to make and a great complement for this fluffy pancake. I didn't add up whole sugar on pancake, as with syrup it's just right .

Banana pancake with banana syrup



Banana Pancakes With Caramel-Banana Syrup
original recipe from :Bon App├ętit

Syrup:
2 bananas
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water

Cut bananas into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Combine melted butter, brown sugar, and water in heavy large skillet. Boil over medium-high heat until mixture thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract and sliced bananas. Remove syrup from heat.


Pancake:
1 large bananas, mashed
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/4 cup (packed) golden brown sugar, (I used 2 tbs icing sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (as Muslim I didn't use this)
2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups buttermilk (you can make your own buttermilk out of 2 cups milk and 2 tbs white vinegar, wait for 10 mnts, until it thickens )
2 large eggs

Additional melted butter

Whisk flour and sugar in large bowl. Mash banana in medium bowl, then whisk in buttermilk and eggs. Stir banana mixture into dry ingredients (some lumps will remain). Mix in melted butter.

Heat griddle over medium heat; brush with additional melted butter. Working in batches, pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto griddle. Cook pancakes until golden, about 2 minutes per side.

Serve pancakes with caramel-banana syrup.
