Banana Pancakes

photo by potafeu

Last night Kevin wanted to make pancakes for supper and we were out of the regular pre-made mix stuff. So instead, he whipped up these babies. Not bad for an 11 year old, and I must say, they were really yummy!

Recipe is from Crazy Plates, by Janet and Greta Podleski

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups buttermilk (if you don't have buttermilk, sour your own milk by adding 1 tsp lemon juice)
2 tbsp butter or margarine, melted
1 egg
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup mashed bananas

Whisk the flours, baking powder, soda, and salt together in a bowl. In a separate bowl combine the milk, egg, honey, banana, and vanilla. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir, adding the melted butter.
The mixture will be quite thick.

Oil up your griddle and pre-heat it to about 300 F. Spoon the batter onto the griddle to make pancakes approximately 4-5 inch circles. When the batter is bubbling and the edges look browned, flip over and cook the other side. Don't push down on the pancakes with the spatula, that lets out all the air that keeps 'em fluffy! Keep warm in a pre-heated oven set at the lowest possible temperature. (we set them on a oven proof plate, but you could also use a cookie sheet).

Makes about 10-12
