Banana Pancakes

It's been an interesting culinary experience around our house this week. After we've all been on vacation, and trying to get back into a schedule of meal planning, we've had some random nights of "I'm not in the mood to eat this!" And last night was one of those nights where the meal on the schedule didn't sound all. And since it was just me and my son for dinner, I thought why not make some good comfort food like pancakes, but with a twist. I found this Banana Pancake recipe on

When we sat down to eat, these tasted like pancakes with some banana in it. Shocking deduction, I know! But in a nice, subtle, yummy way. I only had the lone ripening banana that I threw in the batter or I would have jazzed up my photo of the stack of pancakes with some banana slices. But as a pantry raid recipe goes, this came up aces.

Banana Pancakes

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas, mashed (I used one big banana)

Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.
Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.
