Home » Food » Love Pancakes and French Toast? Then Try This Banana Sauce….

Many years ago, I was making pancakes and realized that I didn’t have any maple syrup in the fridge. I then had a “MacGyver Moment” and pulled out three ingredients that would replace the need for maple syrup: a banana, some brown sugar and butter.

Not only did it work, but I swear this sauce has totally replaced the need to have Maple Syrup in my fridge.


one banana

1/4 cup brown sugar

2-3 tablespoons butter

cinnamon (optional)


1. Melt the butter and the brown sugar.

melt 1

2. Add the sliced banana. *the hotter the pan…..the better, so take your time to ensure that everything will caramelize  (this is a good thing!!)melt - 2


melt - final

Sprinkle with cinnamon if you want!!

I serve this sauce with french toast or pancakes and without fail it’s always a hit.

Happy Cooking.
