Bananas Foster Dutch Baby Pancakes Recipe
Sunday Morning Bananas Foster Dutch Baby Pancakes
For the Dutch Baby
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp butter
For the Bananas Foster
- 1/4 cup butter 4 tbsp
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tbsp dark rum
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 bananas sliced
- 1/4 cup pecans chopped (optional)
- Whipped Cream optional but highly encouraged!
Make the Dutch Baby
- Place a 10” cast iron pan in your oven. Preheat the oven to 425F (with the skillet inside).
- In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, and eggs until combined.
- Next, add the flour, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk until no lumps remain.
- When the oven is preheated, remove the skillet (careful, it will be hot!). Add the butter to the hot skillet and swirl it around until it has melted and fully coats the bottom of the skillet.
- Pour the batter into the middle of the skillet (all of the butter will be around the outside— that’s okay!) and place the skillet back into the oven.
- Allow the dutch baby to bake for 12-15 minutes, or until it is puffed and golden brown around the edges.
Make the Bananas Foster
- Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter, brown sugar, and rum and stir until the butter has fully melted.
- Once the butter is melted and the mixture is starting to bubble, whisk in the vanilla, cinnamon, and pecans and cook for another minute— whisking continually so the caramel doesn’t burn.
- Next, add in the sliced bananas and stir to make sure the banana slices are fully coated with caramel.
- Pour the bananas and caramel into the dutch baby and serve immediately.
- This bananas foster recipe does not have to be lit on fire. The alcohol will have time to evaporate during the bubbling period.
- Light or dark brown sugar will work in this recipe.
I used Captain Morgan Spiced Rum to enhance the caramel and cinnamon flavors but any dark rum will work.
- Look for bananas that are bright yellow. Green bananas will be too hard and brown bananas will be too soft.
