Banana Topping

  • 1/2cup butter
  • 1/4cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2cup maple syrup
  • 1/4to 1/2 teaspoon rum extract, if desired
  • 4firm ripe medium bananas, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1/2cup chopped toasted pecans or walnuts, if desired


1 In medium bowl, stir Bisquick™ mix, milk and eggs until blended. Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375°F. Grease griddle with vegetable oil if necessary (or spray with cooking spray before heating). For each pancake, use slightly less than 1/4 cup batter. Cook until bubbles break on surface. Turn; cook until golden. Serve immediately, or place on cookie sheet in warm oven until ready to serve.
2 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, mix butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup and rum extract. Cook mixture over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly with wooden spoon, until sugar dissolves and mixture is thick.
3 Reduce heat to medium; add bananas, gently spooning sauce over each piece. Cook about 3 minutes or until bananas are glossy and coated with sauce.
4 To serve, place 2 pancakes on each individual plate; spoon about 1/3 cup bananas and sauce over pancakes. Garnish with chopped nuts, and serve immediately.

German Oven Pancakes

Watching this skillet-baked pancake magically puff up in the oven is almost as much fun as eating it.
  • Prep 10 Min
  • Total 25 Min
  • Servings 4


  • 1/2cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 3eggs
  • 1/2cup milk
  • 2tablespoons melted butter
  • 1tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4teaspoon of salt
  • fresh fruit of your choice, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • whipped cream


1 Preheat oven to 450°F. If you have a convection oven, set it at 425°F (the pancakes rise even higher on the convection setting).
2 In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs with a whisk or fork. Stir in the milk, melted butter, salt and sugar. Add the flour to the egg mixture, a big spoonful at a time as you continue to whisk. Be careful not to over-mix, to keep the pancake light and fluffy.
3 Lightly spray a 9″-11″ oven-safe skillet with cooking spray.
4 Pour the batter into a heated skillet (this will yield a more golden brown, puffier pancake). Bake 12-18 minutes, just until the edges are golden. Check your pancake at the 12 minute mark. Top with the fresh fruit and whipped cream just before serving.
