BANANA FAKE CAKES
1 Tbs Flour
Pinch Baking powder
1 tsp Vanilla (optional)
Prepare hot skillet.
Mash bananas with a fork. Mix in dry ingredients and spices. Once combined, add eggs and beat together with a fork. The mixture should now resemble a typical pancake batter. Stir in any of the optional add-ins (fruit, nuts, etc) into the mixture. Let sit for about a minute.
Pour a quarter of the batter onto a hot skillet. Flip when the "cake" is dimpled and steaming (5-8 minutes depending on heat). Cook for another couple minutes. Repeat until all batter is used. This amount should make 4-6 small pancakes. Serve with warm fruit topping or jam.**
*Kathryn's favorite spices to add are Cinnamon and Cardamom. (Kathryn sometimes uses orange peel if she is adding fresh cherries to the batter mix)
**While the pancakes are cooking cut up some fresh fruit (such as strawberries) and toss in a pot with a little bit of water and a small pad of butter. Serve warm on top of pancakes!
Optional add-ins: Kathryn likes to add a small handful of chopped walnuts, coconut flakes, or fresh fruit (like blueberries) into the mix for a little added pizzazz and additional protein (from the nuts).
