Fall is in the air! I love this time of year. It makes me want to bake pumpkin rolls and drink apple cider. Instead, I’m brainstorming fall and winter cupcake flavors and attempting to come up with something truly unique. What flavors remind you of fall? I’m thinking sweet potatoes, pumpkin, gingerbread….
This morning I made pancakes using a recipe from www.AllRecipes.com. We added our own unique twist of bananas, pecans and some cinnamon. Enjoy!
BANANA NUT PANCAKES
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 bananas, chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- Preheat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Make a well in the center. In a separate bowl, beat together egg, milk, oil, and vanilla. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture. Beat until smooth.
- Pour or scoop the batter onto the hot griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Sprinkle with banana and pecans. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
***A secret to getting fabulous homemade pancakes is to let the batter sit overnight (covered) in the fridge. When you take it out in the morning, DON’T STIR! Your batter should be nice and fluffy and it will make melt-in-your-mouth pancakes!
P.S. Someone please enlighten me. What is the obsession with cake pops? Sure, they look cute and make a fun treat, but they are just downright nasty. What am I missing? I’ve had several clients suggest that I make and sell these, but I just can’t make myself sell something that I can’t stomach. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
