Pancakes are one of our favorite breakfast foods. We have them almost every weekend or so. At first, we just had regular pancakes, and while they were delicious, after a while, they got boring. So we started making different kinds of pancakes. We added fruit and we added whipped cream. We even coated breakfast sausage in pancake batter – it’s delicious, by the way.

The recipe we’re really enjoying right now is our delicious banoffee pancakes. They are practically dessert for breakfast, and they are absolutely amazing.

Banoffee Pancakes Tips

These pancakes and the caramel sauce that goes with them are both so easy to make. If you follow the directions and do nothing more than that, you’ll have something delicious. That being said, we have some tips that will help you take your pancakes to the next level.

Don’t Overcook the Pancakes – The key to delicious pancakes is not to overcook them. You want a golden brown color, not dark brown. Be careful, however, that you don’t take them off too soon, or they’ll be doughy.

Extra Ripe Bananas – To get the most delicious banana flavor in these pancakes, use extra ripe bananas.

Go Slow with the Caramel – When making the caramel sauce, keep the heat on medium-low. It pays to take your time with caramel sauce to get the best flavor and avoid scorching.

What is banoffee?
Banoffee is an English pie made from bananas, cream, and a thick caramel sauce. These are added on top of a biscuit or biscuit and butter base.

How ripe should bananas be for baking?
VERY ripe. The skin of the banana should be almost all brown. For extra rich banana flavor, use banans that have skins that are on their way to black.
