  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Cup whole milk
  • 1 Cup cream
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions
  1. Banana Pancakes
    Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.
  2. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.
  4. Macadamia Nut Sauce
    Grind macadamia nuts in a food processor until fine. Place nuts into a medium saucepan and fry over medium high heat for 5 min or until fragrant. Remove from pan, and set aside.
  5. Lower heat to medium and add the butter, stirring until melted. Stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Slowly pour in milk and cream, constantly whisking the whole time. Add sugar, salt, vanilla to the pan. Cook 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in lemon juice and half of the ground macadamias.
  6. Pour sauce into a serving dish. Serve warm and sprinkle remaining ground macadamia nuts on top of each serving.
Notes
You can make the sauce ahead of time, and just warm it in the microwave before serving.
