      My daughter had a friend sleep over the other night and the kiddies helped make these for breakfast. The kids loved them with cream cheese and jam.

      Delicious thick pancakes just the way I like them, I did change the recipe a little cause when i followed the recipe The pancake batter was very bland and wasnt enough Banana flavour. I just added 2 mashed banana's the the mix, still putting the banana's on top aswel, Add another tsp of vanilla essanceand about a good tablespoon of Maple Syrup and they turned out perfect!

      My kids loved these. These are so good. I chose to mash the bananas and add with the wet ingredients, instead of putting them in sliced. I also used orange zest since I didn't have lemon. So very good! Update: I made this today using plain yogurt instead of sour cream. I also blended all the wet ingredients with my hand blender. The batter was so smooth and the pancakes were even better!
