We don need no steeenkin' stampede breakfast

When I get up early to make some banana pancakes!

Banana Pancakes

1 or 2 bananas (whatever is going brown and you need to use up)

1 cup flour

1 egg

3 tsp baking powder

cinnamon (a whack)

vanilla (a whack)

splenda or sugar a couple tbsp

milk. um.. like 1/3-1/2 cup maybe?

Mash yer nanner(s) in a bowl. Add the egg, vanilla, cinnamon and splenda/sugar. Whisk until nice and whisked. Add flour and baking powder. Mix, adding milk until the batter is the consistency you like. I like mine kinda on the runny side as I like thinnish pancakes. Keep 'em thick if you like, its no never mind to me. Makes about 12-18 p'cakes* depending on how thin/thick they are.

Cook in a nonstick pan over medium heat. Mmm.. pancake goodness.

This recipe is absolutely modified from my Mums basic pancake recipe which is:

For every cup of flour use 1 egg and 3 tsp of baking powder. Use any liquid you want for moisture. We used to make these for my nephew Mark with ginger ale and I have used soda water with enormous success. Add any flavourings/spices/etc to your taste. Its a great recipe as there is no added fat (besides whats in the egg) and it is light and fluffy and stupid easy. It also makes a little bit of p'cakes or a whole huge tonne. Its up to you. I have also mixed up all the dry ingredients and taken it camping and measured it out by the cup and had like my own pancake mix.
Anyways, the weather here sucks goat balls. Stupid rain and high humidity. BLECH. Is Vile I tell you. Where is my Vegas weather? WHERE?? Ugh.
*Always enough to make sure there is one each for the dogs. Dogs LOVE PANCAKES. At least mine do. They do the doggie disco dance of joy when they see those tasty cakes on the table.
