A long time ago, I remember weekly pancake suppers at a church. Very fond memories, because I really wasn’t sure how the women in the kitchen were creating such luscious pancakes. They didn’t taste like ordinary pancakes. Perhaps it was the love they put into their pancakes? That’s such a good thought, I may just keep thinking that!
I was trying to think of something different for dinner, or rather, supper. So I decided on pancakes. Then, when I mixed the pancake mix with water, per package instructions, I saw a banana on the counter (going bad) and a light bulb went off.
Such an easy ingredient to add and SO GLAD I DID! I mashed the banana and added to the mix. Plus, I added a few other ingredients to make them more heavenly. I sprayed the griddle with non-stick cooking spray, heated to 375 degrees and then cut it down to 350. I find that it helps to not burn the pancakes. Poured the batter and the rest was HEAVEN!!These pancakes were scrumptious.
I added, a little butter, syrup and sliced some strawberries and placed them along side the tower of goodness! I could have made a huge tower, but I didn’t want to over do it!
Can You Say YUMMO!!?? Enjoy!
Yields: Approx. 10 pancakes
2 cups boxed Pancake Mix (this recipe used Aunt Jemima, Buttermilk)
1 1/2 cups water
1 very ripe banana, peeled and mashed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar
1/4 cup of butter
Syrup for drizzling (optional)
Sliced fresh fruit for garnish (optional)
Prepare electric griddle. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat to 375 degrees.
Mix first 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl (with pouring spout/lip preferred). Test griddle with sprinkles of water. Once griddle is hot, pour batter onto griddle creating pancakes. Turn heat on griddle down to 350 degrees. Flip pancakes when dough is bubbling and bottom is lightly browned. Cook in batches with remaining pancake batter.
Place pancakes on plates with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon butter on top and in between pancakes. Drizzle with syrup and place fresh fruit on top and/or on side pancakes. Serve immediately.
