A light pancake with a sweet and creamy banana sauce


Total time




  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter (or margarine, melted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter (or margarine)

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup light cream
  • 6 bananas (firm, halved lengthwise)
  • 6 whipped cream

Combine flour and confectioners' sugar; add milk, eggs, butter, vanilla and salt; beat until smooth. Heat a lightly greased 6-inch skillet; add 3 tablespoons batter, spreading to almost cover bottom of skillet. Cook until lightly browned; turn and brown other side. Remove to wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter greasing skillet as needed.


Melt butter in large skillet. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in cream and cook until slightly thickened. Add half of the bananas at a time to skillet; heat for 2–3 minutes, spooning sauce over them. Remove from heat. Roll a pancake around each banana half and place on a serving platter. Spoon sauce over pancakes. Top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon. Makes 5–6 servings.
