Brown Sugar Bananas

    1 stick unsalted butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 4 bananas, 1-2 tablespoons water, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Fill the center of the pancake with the brown sugar bananas and roll with a fork. Top with more sauce. Enjoy!


Tips for making this recipe:

  • Don't like bananas? The sauce works well with many other fruits like peaches and plums.
  • No buttermilk on hand? Using soured milk works just as well. To sour milk take 1 cup of regular milk then add 1 Tbs vinegar or apple cider vinegar and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  • To store: add to a covered container. Reheat in the microwave. Eat within 3 days.
