Banana Pancakes

Last Saturday night, I had no idea what to fix for supper.  I didn’t want take out, but the cupboard was pretty bare at home.  That afternoon I was catching up on a little blog reading and found this recipe.  Thank you, www.mybakingaddiction.com!  You saved C & I from a boring supper.  Just about every time I cook pancakes, I burn the first one, but not with these beauties.  Every one of them were perfect!  I even had a few left over for breakfast the next morning.

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tbsp white sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg, beaten

1 cup milk (I used 2%)

2 tbsp vegetable oil

2 ripe bananas, mashed

2 shakes of cinnamon (or a little more if you like)

1/2 tsp vanilla


Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.


In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, oil, vanilla and bananas.


For some reason, this part of the batter looked a little gross to me, but don’t worry.  It all turns out great in the end.

Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.  As Alton Brown says, we are using the muffin method.


Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.  I was lucky enough to receive an electric griddle for Christmas a couple of years ago.  Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/3 cup for each pancake.


Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides and serve hot.  Oh, and add as much butter and syrup as you can stand!
