The sky is filled with graying clouds from a fog that lingers in the absence of current rain. What was last week’s snow has become mud puddles amidst the natural green. The air is moist on a Friday in March.
And Spring begins.
That bunch of bananas that was crisp while the snow was falling has begun attracting freckles. Soon the little yellow wonders will be nothing but a ripened brown. And what are you to do?
Turn on some Jack Johnson and get your banana pancake on!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas (somewhat mashed)
- Combine and stir your dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt) in one bowl.
- Combine wet ingredients (egg, milk, oil, bananas) in a second bowl. I put these in a mixer to blend them evenly.
- Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and gently blend.
- Heat your griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour batter onto griddle/pan. Cook and flip them.
I found this recipe on AllRecipes and was pleased with how effortless they were. They’re best served hot with a good dollop of butter. I also like honey and a sprinkle of sea salt on mine for a nice contrast. So fluffy!
Enjoy, guys! I hope you have a great week!
