Cinnamon Chip Pancakes with Bananas Foster Topping

Big breakfast slurge this morning! Nothing like a jolt of sugar to wake you up. I finally made it through the semester and classes are over so I am hoping to have more time to try new recipes and blog more. I combined two different recipes for breakfast this morning. I used Harried Housewife's Cinnamon Chip Pancakes recipe and topped it with Barbara Bakes' Bananas Foster Topping. Barbara has a delicous sounding coconut pancake recipe with her topping, but since I'm the only coconut lover here, I didn't try them yet.

The Cinnamon Chip Pancakes uses cinnamon chips that are like chocolate chips, but with a smooth cinnamon flavor. They are sold right next to the chocolate chips, but not every store carries them. This recipe only uses 3/4 cup of the chips so if you need another recipe to use the rest of the bag, check out my older posts of Cinnamon Chip Crescents, Cinnamon Fudge, or Banana Cinnamon Chip Cake or just throw some into your muffin, cake or cookie batter or dough.


Cinnamon Chip Pancakes with Bananas Foster Topping
2 c. flour
2 T. sugar
2 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 c. milk
2 eggs
6 T. butter, melted
3/4 c. cinnamon chips
Bananas Foster Topping
1/4 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 t. cinnamon
Pinch of salt
2 T. water
1/2 t. vanilla extract
4 firm ripe bananas, sliced
 
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add milk and eggs; whisk just until combined. Stir in butter. Heat griddle to 375 degrees or set a heavy skillet over medium heat. Lightly brush griddle or skillet with vegetable oil, if necessary. Gently fold in cinnamon chips. Working in batches, ladle 1/4 cup batter onto griddle. Cook pancakes until tops are covered with bubbles and edges are slightly dry, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn pancakes over; cook until bottoms are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with maple syrup. Makes 6 servings.
 
Topping:
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, water and vanilla stir until smooth. Add the banana slices and stir to coat evenly. Allow to cook for 1 minute (don’t overcook the banana.) Remove from heat.
