Banana Cinnamon Pancakes With Butter Rum Sauce

"This is one of my favorite pancake recipes. The butter rum sauce provides a grown-up, Carribean flavor to this childhood favorite. You can leave out the rum or use rum extract, however, the dark rum provides a nice flavor."

    The pancakes have a great texture. I thought I would have to add milk but no it was perfect. The maple syrup with the butter and rum is great, but me and DH would have liked maybe a bit more rum :) Thanks Swissms :) Made for Zaar Star Game

    I love making brekky for supper. This recipe fit the bill nicely. I also love using bananas that I have in my freezer for just such recipes. The banana taste comes through nicely. I think I'll up the cinnamon next time, but that's just me. A cinnamon lover. As a previous reviewer stated, nutmeg would work nicely as well. :-)
    These are very delicious! Made for our "breakfast dinner" that we have once a week. They tasted similar to a banana bread, but not as heavy. The butter rum sauce was outstanding!! Just a couple spoonfuls was all we needed on each serving; was good because it omitted the extra butter and syrup we usually add to the pancakes. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag January 2010.

    Wonderful pancakes!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe and served it along with bacon. I also made the wonderful syrup!! It is a little more work for the pancakes, but worth it for the wonderful flavor!!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag.


I love cooking for family and friends. I especially enjoy is like combining art and science to create something extraordinary. I am most known for making desserts like Recipe #336060. My pet peeve: when people sign-up to bring dessert to a pot-luck or dinner party and they bring something pre-made from the store. My friends and family now know to always let me bring the dessert. :) I enjoy traveling and believe that one of the best ways to experience a culture is through food. I have lived in Germany, Spain and Switzerland, and currently live in the US. My rating system: 5 stars - Excellent! Delicious! Could not be better...will make often. 4 stars - Very good! May tweak slightly. 3 stars - Good base recipe. Will need to tweak. 2 stars - Ok. Will keep looking.
