I'm posting twice today... first, because I just have to rave about these fabulous pancakes I made the other day! ...and second, well, you'll see!
This is more-or-less the pancake recipe from The Better Homes and Gardens red plaid cookbook. You've ALL got one of THOSE in your kitchen... right?!
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar (you could leave this out...)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
4 tablespoons veggie oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 bananas, mashed
Combine the dry ingredients, stir to mix and then set aside. Combine the wet ingredients through the vanilla--you'll add the bananas and chocolate chips later. Mix the dry and wet ingredients, stir sparingly... and yes, the batter will be a bit lumpy, just like all pancake batters. Stir in the two mashed bananas.
Pour the batter into your pan just like you would for any other pancakes. Grab a hand full of chocolate chips and sprinkle them into the batter before you flip the pancakes, and then finish cooking them.
These were SO good... I had leftovers, so I froze them between sheets of waxed paper and I'm currently eating a couple of them hot out of the microwave. Syrup just sounded like TOO MUCH, in terms of sweetness, so I ate mine with a little bit of butter... Ryan had his with syrup.
