When I was in Las Vegas last month I ordered a breakfast of salted caramel and banana french toast from the restaurant in my hotel my first morning there. Oh my goodness, it was good! It took everything I had not to go back and order it every morning there after. So when I got home and was remembering what a great time I had I started to think about that breakfast. Yes, I do daydream about food. . sometimes. . . ok, quite often. . . don’t judge.
So yesterday I decided to give the recipe a try. I don’t usually get up early enough to do morning food trials, so we decided to make these for dinner. First try and they were fabulous! They tasted exactly like the french toast I remembered from the Flamingo hotel in Las Vegas. . but we made them into pancakes.
There are two ways to make this. . the easy, fast way and the completely homemade way.
We, like most families, are pretty rushed in the mornings so I wanted to show a version that was quick to make but would still offer your family a great tasting, healthy breakfast (that looks like it took you forever to make. . teehee). So for this recipe, we used boxed pancake mix. If you have the time and want to cook from scratch you can find a great recipe for homemade pancake mix here: Smashed Peas and Carrots Blog.
What you will need:
Werthers baking caramels
Begin by preparing your pancake mix as directed. Before you put the pancakes on the griddle, mush up 1-2 bananas and add them to your mix. Continue cooking as directed.
In a glass dish, add one package of Werthers baking caramels and one tablespoon of milk. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute, stir. Continue cooking for one additional minute.
When the pancakes are ready, top with additional sliced bananas and drizzle the melted caramel over the pancakes instead of syrup.
Now it’s time to enjoy this delectable, fancy breakfast. Even if you can’t make it to the Flamingo in Las Vegas you can now say you’ve eaten a meal from there. Well. Sort of. 🙂 ( just close your eyes and pretend. That’s what I do most of the time)
