Did you know National Pancake Day is March 1, 2011? IHOP is offering a short stack of complimentary pancakes from 7 am to 10 am. Apparently, my office frowns upon me having breakfast at those hours when I’m expected to be at the office. However, in celebration of Strawberry Month (February) in Florida and National Pancake Day I made some strawberry banana pancakes this past weekend.
So get out there and celebrate National Pancake Day, but if you’re like me and you can’t… do it on another day. Here’s my recipe for Strawberry Banana Pancakes
Fresh ripe strawberries sliced and halved
2 large bananas (ripened) for batter 1 small banana for garnish
1 1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Directions: Mash bananas with a fork in bowl. Add dry ingredients. Add remaining wet ingredients. Mix well with a fork. Break up lumps of flour with fork.
Preheat nonstick pan on medium heat spray with nonstick Pam. Ladle in a scoop of batter. When it starts to bubble flip pancake. Garnish pancakes with strawberries and bananas. Serve with favorite syrup. Makes about 14-18 pancakes. Serves 4-6. I cut my ingredients in half for the two of us.
Mmmmmm the banana taste of the pancake was scrumptious. A hearty filling breakfast for sure.
