Blogging is so depressing. My top post is the one that got ONE view over the past week. ONE. So I guess I’ll stick to what I’m good at and post some recipes.
This is pretty much the pancake recipe my mother made when my brothers and I were growing up. Dan and Claire have a copy up over at their blog, and I modified that slightly. I guess this is my take on their take on the original.
- 1.5 c. flour (consisting of 1 c. white and 1/2 c. whole wheat)
- 1.5 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp brown sugar (packed)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 banana, mushed up
- 2 eggs
- buttermilk as needed
- Mix the dry ingredients (including sugar) in a bowl. If the bananas are frozen (see note below), thaw in the microwave.
- Add the eggs and the bananas. Mix.
- Add buttermilk until you get a batter of pancake-like consistency.
- Make pancakes in a frying pan, keeping temperature to medium-low. OR on a griddle, keeping temperature between 300-350.
- If your household eats a lot of bananas, I recommend putting the overripe ones in the freezer at the end of the week. Then when you have a couple accumulated, you can make banana bread or pancakes.
- You can sprinkle chocolate chips on the pancakes if you want to be fancy.
