Bananas Foster

Bananas Foster

My son, Andrew, is just as passionate about food and flavors as I am. This makes it very satisfying to create something extra special for him to oooh and ahhh over, and then enthusiastically scarf down.

One day he asked that I make him pancakes, and so I whipped up this recipe for Bananas Foster to serve on top. He loved it! Now it’s a tradition for us to enjoy this on lazy weekend mornings.

It’s also a wonderful topping for ice cream!
