Pancake Day Yummies & Recipe #ShroveTuesday

Tuesday, 21 February 2012

Pancake Day is a firm family favourite in our house, this afternoon I prepared our pancakes for dessert and kept them warm in the oven until after dinner when we and the children tucked in with gusto! I made two stacks of "American style" pancakes (our favourites) from my Giraffe Family Cookbook and served them with some caramelised bananas, and a selection of toppings including maple syrup, golden syrup, and toffee and chocolate sauces.

The caramelised bananas were delicious. I used a very quick & simple recipe from the BBC website which can be found here and is as follows -

Caramelised Bananas

55g / 2oz caster sugar
½ tsp vanilla essence
1-2 tbsp hot water
2 bananas
Knob of butter

1. Heat the sugar, vanilla and water in a pan, until it forms a caramel.
2. Add the banana to the pan, shaking to coat.
3. Add the butter to the pan and heat for another 1-2 minutes.
4. Transfer the caramelised bananas to a serving plate.

See, how easy is that! Nothing to it. Very naughty but very nice, especially with pancakes. A lovely treat for Shrove Tuesday.
