Banana Pancakes

Extended Shelf Life for: Red Bananas and Orange Juice Growing up, I began to equate Mardi Gras with pancakes. Our church always hosted a pancake dinner on the Tuesday night before Ash Wednesday so occassionally, I do my own little flashback to the tradition and end up with severe pancake cravings the week of Mardi Gras. This year, I celebrated by whipping these pancakes together, serving them with a homemade apple-strawberry syrup and enjoying them with our dear friend Mark and a lovely CouchSurfer, Julia.


1 3/4 cups Flour
2 Tbsp. Sugar
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
Shake of Salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cups Orange Juice
3/4 cups Yogurt or Milk
3 Tbsp. Oil
3 Mashed Bananas

Combine Ingredients, dry first, add liquids. Plop by the spoonful on a hot griddle until bubbles begin forming, then flip the cake over and cook on the other side. Serve with favorite jams or syrups.
