Pancakes
2
cups Original Bisquick® mix
1
cup milk
2
eggs
Banana Topping
1/2
cup butter
1/4
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2
cup maple syrup
1/4
to 1/2 teaspoon rum extract, if desired
4
firm ripe medium bananas, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/2
cup 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.
