Great banana flavor! This is a recipe adapted from an Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa) cookbook.

I added about a tbsp or two of extra milk, as I felt the batter was too thick. When it says wipe out the pan, it means wipe out the pan...the sugar in the bananas really carmelizes and makes the pan burn the next batch of pancakes if you don't. I ran out of banana slices and had enough batter left for one pancake. It was wonderful, so if you don't want bananas in your pancake, the batter is good enough to go without. If I make this with bananas again, I'll cut them up into little pieces and add it to the batter that way. I think these are wonderful enough to eat without syrup.
