In episode 1 of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back, Chef Gordon Ramsay visits a small café in the heart of New Orleans and the resulting menu includes dishes that are anything but ordinary. This recipe takes the New Orleans classic recipe for Bananas Foster and replaces the ice cream with … pancakes? The sweet cinnamon, brown sugar, and rum-based sauce makes a perfect syrup to top off a pancake breakfast.
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 bananas (ripe, medium-sized)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk (dairy or dairy-alternative)
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 pinch fine sea salt
- 2 teaspoons spiced rum
- 2 cups bananas (sliced)
- 1/4 cup walnuts (or pecans, pieces)
- Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
- Make a well in the bowl by pushing the dry ingredients along the sides. In the center, mash the banana with a fork until very smooth.
- Whisk in the eggs, milk, and melted butter and continue to combine all of the ingredients until mixed well.
- Heat a frying pan to medium heat and grease lightly with vegetable oil. Spoon on 1/4 cupfuls batter onto the hot pan while making sure the pancakes do not touch each other. Cook until bubbles begin to form and pop. Then flip and cook for 1 more minute or until that side is also golden brown. Continue to do this until batter is gone, and set cooked pancakes aside.
- Prepare the topping (see below) and serve pancakes warm with topping spooned over top.
- Melt the butter and brown sugar in a pan on medium. Stir frequently and watch carefully so it doesn't burn.
- Add in the cinnamon, salt, and rum, and stir fast and quick to combine well.
- Add in the bananas and stir gently to coat them. Remove the pan from the flame and spoon topping over prepared pancakes.
- Sprinkle with walnut or pecan pieces, if desired, and serve.
