Topped with caramelized bananas, these Bananas Foster Whole Wheat Pancakes will become your favorite breakfast!
This is going to sound crazy, but the amount of Bananas Fosters I’ve made in my lifetime probably amounts to over a total of a thousand bananas worth. The reason is that I worked at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, home to the second largest brunch in the US (first place is the Bellagio in Las Vegas). And nothing says “brunch dessert” more than Bananas Foster, which was the live action station I worked every Sunday.
The classic Bananas Foster is the composed dessert of caramelized bananas and vanilla ice cream, but I decided to top pancakes with the bananas instead! Originating in New Orleans, Bananas Foster has become a signature dessert for many places in Louisiana and all over the world; patrons love watching the servers and chefs caramelize bananas and ignite them with the rum!
So what better way to start the week then with a stack of pancakes that not only taste good, but are made with King Arthur Flour’s Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour? Milled from hard white spring wheat, instead of the usual red wheat, this flour makes 100% whole wheat products lighter and fluffier, making these pancakes a great way to start your mornings!
