Amazing Banana Pancakes
Source of Recipe
These pancakes are rich, sweet and comforting. Easy to make with things you likely have on hand, they'll turn breakfast into something special!
List of Ingredients
2 1/4 cups Bisquick (or your favorite brand of baking mix)
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (regular milk works fine if you don't have buttermilk on hand)
2 T melted butter or oil
2 tsp sugar (white or brown sugar, either is fine)
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 C chopped pecans (optional)
2 to 3 large bananas, sliced (about a quarter inch thick)
1 C white chocolate chips
In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the Bisquick, milk or buttermilk, butter, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and pecans (if using).
Slice the bananas and set them aside.
Place a griddle over medium heat, spray with cooking spray. When it's nice and hot, reduce the heat a little to about medium-low.
Use a soup ladle to spoon out batter onto the hot griddle (I find this makes perfect sized pancakes). Immediately sprinkle a few white chocolate chips onto the batter, then place banana slices onto the batter, pressing them in just slightly.
Cook until the edges of the pancakes start to look dry and they are golden brown on one side. Flip the pancakes over and cook for another minute or two.
DO NOT try to move them around once you've flipped them. The bananas will caramelize and stick just a little bit.
When the second side is nice and golden, remove the pancakes to a serving platter (if you're making a lot, you can keep them warm in a low oven, 150-200 degrees).
Wipe the griddle with a paper towel between batches, as the bananas will leave a small amount of stickiness on the griddle. Re-spray with cooking spray before cooking the next batch.
Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
