I concede there may be a slip-up or two before we go. A month is, after all, a long time to go without a treat. But I figured we’d go out in style, and celebrate our nearing vaca with something really worth it.
So, we made pancakes. Big, fluffy American pancakes. With buttermilk and golden, caramelized bananas. Lots of honey. Nuts. Cinnamon. Piled into giant stacks, 2 forks at the ready.
The batter will be thick, almost like a tea cake’s, so dollop the it onto the pan then into circles with the back of a spoon. Let them cook for 1 minute or so, then top with the sliced bananas. I usually find that whole wheat flour gets a bit stodgy when cooked. Not so here. The pancakes were perfectly fluffy and light, with a slight nuttiness from the wheat.
Looking back I guess they’re not hugely unhealthy – whole wheat, fruit, nuts and honey aren’t exactly bad for you. The number that we ate? Questionable. I have a feeling you’ll have a hard time holding back on these, too.
