Plantain Pancakes With Rum Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Queen Dana

This is one of my husband's recipes. You can use a banana instead of a plantain but bananas tend to be smaller than plantains so use a very large banana or 2 small bananas. ***The directions have been written by my husband, if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them.

The batter is very thin - my pancakes didn't hold shape very well, but I didn't care. They were light, almost like a Swedish plattar, and the vanilla complimented the plantains nicely. I used leftover plantains that I had already grilled, though I think very ripe (black) plantains, already cooked, would work best.
