I found this recipe in a magazine for fun things to do in the kitchen with your children (a Martha Stewart publication). A definite pleaser for banana lovers because it's got whole slices of banana right in the center! Make your own sauce to go over these and you'll be in breakfast heaven!
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 bananas, sliced into rounds
- butter (for pan) or cooking spray (for pan)
- powdered sugar (optional)
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon sugar (can add more to taste)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat your oven to 175 degrees. This is so that when you finish making the pancakes, they will stay nice and warm without having to microwave.
- Whisk sugar, baking powder, salt, and flour in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, milk, and 2 tbsp butter. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients.
- Whisk wet and dry ingredients togehter until the batter is just slightly lumpy.
- Heat pan over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray or use butter to coat the pan.
- Slice bananas into rounds and place onto the pan, then pour 1 tbsp of the pancake batter over the banana slice.
- Cook for 1-2 minutes (until there are big bubbles all over the surface of the pancake), then flip and cook another minute or so (until done).
- Put the pancakes onto a baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm.
- Serve with the sauce (cooked in the same pan as the pancakes after the pancakes are done. You should get a hint of banana flavor in your sauce if you cook it immediately aftetrward). You can also serve with just powdered sugar.
