Levi was in charge of pancakes this morning and he is getting better every time. He used to specialise in making ‘pancake rollups’. A name he came up with to give his failed flipped pancakes some dignity. Essie thought they tasted better then normal pancakes – so sweet! But now he is mastering the art of the perfect flip.
We like to make Julie Goodwin’s Buttermilk Pancakes and occasionally we indulge in her caramel sauce with bananas. This morning we felt like indulgence. I did the saucepan of caramel sauce and the girls got the bananas ready. A group effort.
buttermilk pancakes with caramel sauce and bananas
(from Julie Goodwin’s ‘Our Family Table’)
1 batch of buttermilk pancakes
sliced bananas to serve
125g cold unsalted butter, cubed
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pouring cream
Combine all the caramel sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan and sit over a low heat. Stir until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until thickened. Set aside to cool slighlty.
