BANANA PANCAKES

Banana Pancakes
Pancakes were one of the first things I ever learned how to cook, back in middle school home economics class. The basic ingredients are cupboard essentials and there’s an endless number of variations with fruit, nuts or chocolate.

Somehow, I always have bananas in my freezer. This recipe from Allrecipes.com, with the addition of cinnamon, is a perfect use for them and makes a dozen moist and fluffy pancakes, perfect for soaking up maple syrup. A dozen pancakes is a lot for one or two people. I like to make them on a Sunday morning, eat my fill and store the rest for the week. They keep well and make for an easy breakfast heated up in a toaster.

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

  3. In another bowl whisk the egg and add in the milk, oil and mashed bananas.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix them all together into a wet batter.
  5. Keep your pan at medium heat, adding a small pat of butter between each set of pancakes.
