You know that feeling when you get so excited about something that you almost want to vomit? That’s a good feeling.
OK, I understand that you shouldn’t really talk about vomiting when you’re trying to convince people to try a new recipe, but now that I’ve mentioned vomiting
two three times I think it’s too late to worry about it anymore.
Anyway, today has been a good day for me. I don’t know why, but I’ve just been really excited about everything. Happy. My entire day has been like a terrifying roller coaster of happiness.
These amazingly tasty, thick and fluffy banana pancakes can also make a person very excited and happy (but hopefully won’t upset your stomach as much). You might want to double the batter if there’s a big bunch of people at the breakfast table, because these babies will go fast!
Ingredients: (for 6 pancakes)
½ cup yogurt
½ cup milk
2 bananas, mashed
3 tablespoons canola oil
a pinch of vanilla
1.5 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
a pinch of salt
plus: sliced bananas, blueberries, maple syrup
Start by mixing the milk and yogurt. Add mashed banana and mix thoroughly. Add eggs one by one and follow with oil, vanilla, and the dry ingredients. Add more flour one tablespoon at a time if the batter seems to runny.
Let a small piece of butter melt on a hot pan and then pour a ladleful of batter on to the center of the pan slowly. Push the batter back into the center from the sides if it starts to spread. Cook for about a minute and a half, carefully flip over and continue cooking for a minute.
Enjoy warm with your choice of accompaniments!
