Banana Pancakes

In honor of National Pancake Day I found this recipe for banana pancakes at Morning Song. The pancake batter was much too thin for me so I suggest adding additional flour or less milk if you want a thick and fluffy pancake. The banana syrup I really liked. All in all they were some pretty good pancakes.

Banana Pancakes with Banana Caramel Syrup

2 bananas
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water

Cut bananas into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Combine melted butter, brown sugar, and water in heavy large skillet. Boil over medium-high heat until mixture thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract and sliced bananas. Remove syrup from heat.

1 large bananas, mashed
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/4 cup (packed) golden brown sugar, (I used 2 tbs icing sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (as Muslim I didn't use this)
2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups buttermilk (you can make your own buttermilk out of 2 cups milk and 2 tbs white vinegar, wait for 10 min., until it thickens )
2 large eggs

Additional melted butter

Whisk flour and sugar in large bowl. Mash banana in medium bowl, then whisk in buttermilk and eggs. Stir banana mixture into dry ingredients (some lumps will remain). Mix in melted butter.

Heat griddle over medium heat; brush with additional melted butter. Working in batches, pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto griddle. Cook pancakes until golden, about 2 minutes per side.

Serve pancakes with caramel-banana syrup.
