Number 54: Banana pancakes

First off, these are awesome.

Secondly, I've been itching to try banana pancakes ever since I tried some at Eggsperience with Boyfriend, so here they are. I woke up at noon and made these for lunch-ish, and seeing as I've never made pancakes before, it took quite a while. Nevertheless, they came out well - make these for a sweetheart a la Jack Johnson's love song.
Banana Pancakes
adapted from
1/2 cup flour
1.5 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
dash of salt
3 tablespoons beaten egg
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 ripe banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Sift flour, sugar, powder and salt
2. Separately, mix the egg, milk, butter, vanilla extract and banana
3. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture until just combined - it will be lumpy, which is fine.
4. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan. Drop in two tablespoons of the batter, waiting for it to spread into the circle. Let cook until bubbles pop and do not fill on the sides. Flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
5. Serve with powdered sugar and slightly caramelized banana slices.
Makes about eight small pancakes.
