1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups buttermilk  

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil, melted, cooled

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs, beaten

Caramelized Bananas

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 (2 cups) firm, ripe bananas, sliced lengthwise and cut into 2-inch pieces


 *Substitute 2 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar and enough milk to equal 2 cups. Let stand 5 minutes.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Beat cream cheese and maple syrup in medium bowl with hand mixer until well mixed and no lumps remain. Add whipping cream; beat at medium speed until soft peaks form. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.

  2. STEP 2

    Place 13x9-inch baking pan in oven. Heat oven to 200°F.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat griddle to 350°F or until drops of water sizzle on surface.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and salt in large bowl. Add buttermilk, melted Butter with Canola Oil and eggs. Whisk just until combined. (Batter will be thick and lumpy.)

  5. STEP 5

    Lightly grease or butter griddle.

  6. STEP 6

    Using 1/4 cup measure, spoon batter onto griddle. Cook 2-3 minutes or until bubbles form on surface. Turn pancake over; continue cooking 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Place finished pancakes in warm baking pan in oven; cover with dry tea towel. Continue cooking pancakes in batches for total of 16 pancakes.

  7. STEP 7

    Combine 1/2 cup Butter with Canola Oil, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in 12-inch nonstick skillet. Cook over medium heat until bubbles begin to form. Add sliced bananas; cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thick and bananas are heated through.

  8. STEP 8

    Place 1 rounded tablespoon banana mixture onto each of 6 pancakes. Top with another pancake. Repeat with banana mixture and pancakes, using 4 pancakes per serving. Top each serving with 1/4 cup maple cream cheese mixture and spoonful of banana mixture. Serve immediately.
