White Chocolate Banana pancakes with White Chocolate Syrup ~ Series 2 of the Ultimate Chocolate Lover's Breakfast

After last week's ultimate chocolate lover's breakfast of chocolate pancakes with Nutella syrup, different ways to add chocolate to breakfast have been running through my mind all week long. When this coming week’s breakfast came to me, I knew I just had to try it. For this week’s ultimate chocolate lover’s breakfast, I am catering to all white chocolate lover’s out there, we’re having white chocolate banana pancakes with white chocolate syrup!

Now this is NOT a coconut or a cream cheese based syrup, which are the only recipes I found for a white syrup. For some reason, a simple white chocolate syrup isn’t very popular, nothing like Nutella syrup. So after searching for quite some time, I thought pure white chocolate syrup definitely couldn’t be that difficult to make, could it? To my surprise, no it was not. {smile}

I just used a little creativity in the kitchen and came up with a smooth, delicious, vanilla, white chocolate syrup to pour over pancakes, waffles, or ice cream. The idea behind the making of this syrup is I wanted a creamy, white syrup with a rich vanilla taste that would enhance the white chocolate banana pancakes that were to be served with it. And boy, did I do it! I think you will be amazed with how good this syrup is over pancakes and just how simple it is to make. You’ll wonder, why didn’t I ever think of that?

If you’re not a lover of white chocolate, you definitely will be after having this syrup poured over some white chocolate banana pancakes!

White Chocolate Banana pancakes


Pancake mix

1 banana, sliced

¾ cup white chocolate chips

1 cup buttermilk


Make as directed, using 1 cup of buttermilk instead of milk or water. You want pancake mix to be pourable, not too thick. Add buttermilk to desired thickness. For thinner pancakes, add more buttermilk.

Fold in sliced banana and chips until mixed completely.

Cook as directed.

White Chocolate Syrup

Servings - 2

Prep time – 8 minutes


2 Tablespoons half & half

1 Tablespoon sweetened condensed milk

½ cup Karo light corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup white chocolate chips


In a small saucepan, add all ingredients. Over low to medium heat, stirring continuously, cook until mixture becomes smooth, all chips are melted, and mixture is warm enough* to serve over pancakes.

Once mixture becomes warm, remove from heat and serve over pancakes. Enjoy!

*Be careful not to let mixture boil, as you do not want it to burn.
