In honor of National Pancake Day ... or Fat Tuesday ... or just really good pancakes, I made bananas foster pancakes tonight. I used the oatmeal pancake linked below, using a little less sugar, and added half a mashed banana to the batter. Then, for the sauce I melted some butter, added a couple tablespoons of brown sugar, and goodly amount of rum, and let it cook down a bit. I then sliced one banana into the sauce, let the banana heat through, and then spooned it onto the pancakes. The remaining sauce was cooked down a bit more and then drizzled over the top. Note: I made 1/4 of the oatmeal pancake recipe (and came out with eight pancakes), so if you make more, add more banana.
