What could be better than pancakes on a slow, sunny weekend morning?Banana bread pancakes
, that’s what!
OK, and maybe a cup of coffee, too.
I don’t know why the mash-up of these two magical foods didn’t occur to me sooner. I mean, it’s like the Laurel and Hardy of breakfast. The Bert and Ernie. The Thelma and Louise. The Beavis and – nevermind. Let’s just say these two were meant to be together.
Now kick off your shoes, turn on Jack Johnson’s “Banana Pancakes” song and let’s make pancakes!
Grab your big ol’ box of Bisquick (you know you have one), some eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. And what else…BANANAS.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
Mash the ‘nanners and add them to the batter.
It’s OK if the batter is a little lumpy – we’re striving for deliciousness here, people, not perfection!
Pour the batter in quarter cupfuls onto a hot buttered skillet and cook until little bubbles form on top. Flip and cook until the other side is a beauteous golden brown.
Now make a mountainous stack of pancakes (you weren’t planning to share these, were you?), top it with chopped walnuts, banana slices, maple syrup and powdered sugar if desired (a.k.a. JUST DO IT. No regrets!). Take a moment to gaze at your masterpiece…
