Banana Pancakes


Right now it is 12 degrees outside. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of seasons but once it dips below about, oh, I don’t know, 33 degrees or so, I’m wishing I was closer to the equator. My coping mechanism? Denial. I stay inside where it is warm and cook up something tropical. Like Hawaiian quesadillas. Or Pina Coladas. A Hawaiian Sunrise. Or one of my favorite childhood recipes: banana pancakes! Serve them up with some incredible coconut syrup and you will feel like you are having brunch on the beach in paradise.


1 c milk

1 egg

2 T vegetable oil

½ t vanilla extract

2 ripe bananas, mashed

1 c flour

1 T sugar

2 t baking powder

¼ t salt


In medium bowl, mix milk, egg, vegetable oil, vanilla and mashed bananas. Add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and stir just until combined. Pour ¼ cup onto hot griddle or skillet and cook both sides until golden.
