Makin’ (Caramelized) Banana Pancakes, Pretend Like It’s The Weekend…

Who doesn’t love something sweet in the morning?  These pancakes hit the spot with the fluffiness of the pancakes and caramelized creaminess of the bananas. ( If you are making this for adults, spoil them and add the rum to the sauce for a real treat!) 
Whenever I make pancakes with bananas I can’t help but think of the song by Jack Johnson, “Banana Pancakes.”  This happy and soothing song is perfect while eat this delicious, fluffy and sweet breakfast.

Pancakes with Caramelized Bananas  

1 Box of OSEM Passover Pancake Mix
3 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Milk
2 Tbs. Oil
3 Bananas, firm but ripe, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 Tbs. Butter
3 Tbs. Sugar
1/4 Cup Orange Juice or Apple Juice
1-2 Tbs. Rum (optional)
Pomegranate Seeds (optional)   

Place OSEM Passover Pancake Mix in bowl and mix in the eggs, milk and oil as indicated above,
and follow preparation instruction on box.

In a large pan over medium high heat, melt the butter. Add the banana slices and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Gently turn each one over to the other side to brown, 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cook until it melts, about 1 minute. Gently stir in the juice. Move the pan away from the heat and add the rum if desired. Place pan back on the stove and cook until the sauce reduces slightly, about 1 minute. Serve over pancakes.

Tip: For a no mess pomegranate deseeding experience, cut the pomegranate in half (width) and immerse under a bowl of water to pop out seeds. Strain the seeds from the water.
