Banana Pancakes

What do you do with ripe bananas? I feel like I am always stuck when it comes to ripe bananas. I almost always make banana bread because that is the one thing that is always a hit. On a few occasions I have tried to make something different and it's been met with mix reviews (banana creme brulee was a hit; banana chocolate chip cookies were a miss). I came across this recipe for Banana Pancakes and they were a hit. I had to add 1/4 cup more of flour because my batter was too thin. Also, the pancakes did not rise as much as other pancakes I have made but the end result was still delicious. The pancakes had a subtle banana taste and it reminded me of an ultra moist banana bread.

Banana Pancakes
Source: All Recipes (here)

1 cup all-purpose flour (plus 1/4 cup)
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas, mashed

Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.

Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.

Yum, that's such a clever idea. I made banana bread this past weekend, it's such a dependable recipe for ripe bananas! But, these pancakes look even better!
