Add to dry ingredients and whisk just until smooth. Pour batter by ¼ cupful onto greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown.
Meanwhile, to make sauce, melt butter in a large skillet. Add bananas and pecans and sauté 2 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together lemon curd and water. Add to skillet and cook 2 minutes or until sauce is bubbly. Serve sauce over pancakes. Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
