Put the banana, tablespoon of butter and ¼ cup of the brown sugar in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat. Once the mixture begins to simmer, carefully add the rum. Let mixture reduce, about 5 minutes, and then remove from heat; reserve. Put the buttermilk, eggs, butter and vanilla into the jar of your Cuisinart® PowerEdge® 1000 Watt Blender. Auto Pulse Low for 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the jar with a spatula. Add the dry ingredients, including remaining brown sugar, to the blender jar and Auto Pulse on Low for 20 to 25 seconds. Add the reserved banana mixture and blend on Low until incorporated, about 5 seconds. Preheat a Cuisinart® Griddler® fitted with the griddle plates to 375°F (or use a stovetop griddle). Coat the griddle plates with nonstick cooking spray. For each pancake, pour ¼ cup batter onto the preheated griddle. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until bubbles have formed on top and bottom is lightly browned. Turn pancakes and cook other side until done, about 3 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
