Bananas Foster Syrup

I love traditions, and have been known to go all out for some of the "minor" holidays, like Mardi Gras.  Being Catholic and celebrating the beginning of Lent just adds fuel to the fire.  When I saw this recipe, I couldn't resist.  It's Pancake Tuesday with a decidedly New Orleans flair.  Perfect for Shrove Tuesday dinner! If you like sweet, you'll love this syrup!  Serve it over your favorite pancakes, waffles, or french toast.

3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons banana liqueur
1 tablespoon dark rum
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of salt

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan.  Boil over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring often.  Serve warm, over pancakes.

Makes 1 cup.

  2. I'm going to have to disagree that Mardi Gras is a minor holiday LOL! I need this syrup in my life. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I totally agree! My poor husband thinks we have too many traditions, but I love holidays and being festive, so we celebrate EVERYTHING! :-)
