Banana Split Pancakes

(originally made 3/2011)

Huge hit with both Jake and myself.    Added pineapple topping to mine since it's my favorite part of a banana split.    Found these on the HeatOvento350 blog, lots of great stuff.    Check out her pic, the ice cream melted and made a mess of mine  :)

Banana Split Pancakes

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1                cup  all-purpose flour
  1         tablespoon  granulated sugar
  2          teaspoons  baking powder
     1/4      teaspoon  salt
  1                     egg -- beaten
  1                cup  milk
  2        tablespoons  vegetable oil -- (used canola)
     1/2           tsp  vanilla extract
  2                     ripe bananas -- mashed
                        Vanilla ice cream
                        Chocolate syrup -- (used Dark Chocolate Sea Salt caramel sauce)
                        Maraschino cherries

1. Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder 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-low heat. (These pancakes turn out better when cooked slower on lower heat that regular pancakes so the insides get a chance to cook before the bottom burns.) Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides.

4. Serve pancakes hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and maraschino cherries on top.  

Yield: 8-10 pancakes
