Bananas Foster Shortcakes

Here’s a quick and easy dessert or breakfast for two just in time for Valentine’s day! It seriously takes less than 15 minutes! We use what we like to call our “fake out” caramel sauce since it technically isn’t a caramel sauce, but is pretty darn close and takes a lot less time. I suppose the “Foster” part of this is a play on words, too, considering there aren’t any flames involved (not that you couldn’t light a candle for fun).

Oh, by the way, if bananas aren’t your thing, try strawberries and blueberries, we think that would be delicious!

How to make Quick and Easy Bananas Foster Shortcakes

Bake or heat store bought biscuits or even croissants. Once they are ready, make this easy “fake-out” caramel sauce. You need equal amounts of brown sugar and butter. Heat them over medium heat…

… stir until the sugar melts into the butter.

Add 1-2 tablespoons of water to thin the sauce out and help the sugar and butter come together.

Add sliced bananas and heat through. (strawberries or blueberries work, too)

Top your warm biscuits with the bananas and extra sauce, some whipped cream and enjoy!

We created this recipe for Betty Crocker and are so happy we can share it with you!
