    Everyone here loved these! I love bananas so these were an extra special treat!

    Lots of banana taste, with not too much sugar. I used lime instead of lemon since that's what we had fresh. Either way, a nice little tang for the finished pancake. I did get a fairly thick batter, which cooked into a thick pancake, so there wasn't really any way to fold them into quarters. Perhaps the batter should have been adjusted to be thinner, or else a spoon used to spread the pancake in the pan?

    Loved these, the banana flavour is really evident which is nice... I used whole wheat SR flour and Splenda in lieu of sugar...served with cream cheese...4 yr old DD and I both enjoyed them. Thanks Syd!

    We loved these yummy pancakes and I certainly loved how quick and easy they were to make - so they're a great week night recipe! :) We love bananas, cinnamon and lemons and it was wonderful how they came together so deliciously in this recipe. Thanks for sharing it! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

    these are great, I only had 4 ripe bananas in my freezer so that is what I used, I served them with homemade buttermilk syrup, thanks for sharing Syd!
