Puffed Oven Pancake with Brown Sugar-Banana Sauce


2 tablespoons butter

4 eggs

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup fat-free milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

3 medium bananas, sliced

2 tablespoons light rum or apple juice

Powdered sugar (optional)

Whipped cream (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the 2 tablespoons butter in a 12-inch oven-going skillet or round heavy metal baking pan. Place skillet in oven for 3 to 5 minutes or until butter is melted.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl beat eggs with a wire whisk or rotary beater. Add flour, milk, and salt; beat until smooth. Immediately pour batter into the hot skillet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed and well browned.

For brown sugar-banana sauce, in a small saucepan combine the 1/2 cup butter and the brown sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until melted. Add bananas; cook about 2 minutes or until heated through, stirring gently. Carefully stir in rum; heat through.

To serve, spoon sauce over pancake. If desired, sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream. Serve warm.
