One downside to making banana pancakes? That damn Jack Johnson song that one simply cannot escape. So while I'm sure that everyone is humming it now. I will not mention it again for the duration of this post. It is not fair that such an innocent food is now forever doomed to be associated with a song. I will end by saying that these pancakes are not a gimmick, they are actually delicious in their own right.
the recipe warned me about runny centers. This is why I need to stop listening to recipes.
1 cup all purpose flour
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg beaten
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 Tbsp applesauce
1 cup milk
(chocolate chips would be excellent in these)
1. In a small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients-- flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl mix together the egg, banana, applesauce and milk. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture, the resulting batter will be slightly lumpy.
2. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan or griddle to medium high heat. Add pancake batter by the 1/4 cup full. Cook on both sides until golden brown. Serve immediately.
