Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you! This is a stack of wonderful Boston Cream Banana Pancakes - almost too good to be real! I really over-estimated when I picked up bananas last week, so when I saw the ripened stash early this morning, inspiration struck!
I had made up a fresh creamy Boston Cream last night, and the natives were restless for a hearty and delicious breakfast. Although I'm not sure that these can only be classified by breakfast - they would be perfect for brunch, a dessert, or just for snacking!
And as much as Skipper and the kiddos LOVE buttermilk pancakes, they absolutely DEVOURED these as fast as I could flip them off the griddle!
I started with a little stack of fresh, warm banana pancakes, slathered some cream filling and stacked with sliced bananas - looks good, right?
You could also add a dollop of fresh sweetened whipped cream to the top of this magnificent stack, but I didn't think of that right at the time!
For my crowd, they had a lot of fun building and stacking these to their own crazy specifications - which is part of the magic. The banana pancakes are fabulous all on their own - some butter slathered on top and you would have a wonderful (and lighter) breakfast treat.
If you are camping or in a hurry, you could also use instant vanilla pudding - I'll leave that up to you. If you have never made homemade Boston Cream, it really is so worth the time - the fresh and creamy texture is just so darn good!
Enjoy the lazy, sunny summer mornings while you can!
