Pancakes are one of those items I rarely make. I don’t know if it’s because I am uber lazy on Sunday mornings or if it’s because Bob Evans, IHOP and two local diners are less than a mile away from my house. Although not a huge fan of IHOP, I have indulged in one of their “stuffed” creations on several occasions. I am a fan of Bob Evans, just stay away from their slimy blobs egg whites!

This morning I woke up super motivated: ready to do laundry, clean and, you guessed it, make pancakes! I do not have a go-to recipe for pancakes, so I found one on allrecipes and tweaked it just a bit.

These pancakes came out super delicious and were the perfect breakfast for a beautiful Sunday morning. Too bad for Brian, my motivation lapsed as soon as it was time to clean the kitchen!

Have a great day!

Banana Pancakes


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 shakes of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1. Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla and bananas.

2. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.

3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/3 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.
