banana pancakes


This is probably my favorite breakfast dish.  I remember days spent sleeping over with my cousins at my Grandma and Grandpa’s house, and in the morning (which was usually around noon) we would get up and find a breakfast feast before us.  One of the things my Grandma would make was warm banana pancakes.  Now if you happen to be at our house on any given Friday night, you might find me making these.  Every Friday night at our house is Breakfast Dinner Night, which is a fun change (and an easy night for the cook)!

These are really simple.  All you need is your favorite box of pancake batter and any ingredients it requires, and one ripe banana cut into slices no more than 1/4″ thick.

How to make:

Mix the pancake batter and heat a greased skillet over medium low heat.  Pour the pancake batter into the skillet and immediately set 3 0r 4 slices of banana into the batter.  Wait until the edges are set and you start to see bubbles forming.  Flip the pancake and cook until golden brown.  The warm banana slices will be nestled inside.  Finish with butter, warm maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.

Yum!  Enjoy!
