Thanks to good ‘ol social media, I’m sure you’ve seen this Buzzfeed video being passed around:
And if you hadn’t seen it before, well, you saw it now. You’re welcome.
So, the other day, when Little Moo asked for pancakes I figured… What the heck? Let’s try these bad boys out.
I did this from memory.
C’mon… how hard could it be to remember THREE simple ingredients?
Well… I just plain forgot the cinnamon… 1/3 of the ingredients. But I promise, they were still yummy. But I do think the cinnamon would have made it taste more “pancake-y” and less banana omelette-y.
The video starts with the mashing of the banana. Which I get. It’s much easier to to mash it without the eggs glopping up the works. However, I thought that trying to pull out potential shells from mashed banana wouldn’t be too fun. So, I opted to crack and mix the eggs first.
Then I did some banana mashing.
“I did the mash… I did the ‘nana mash… the ‘nana mash. It was a kitchen smash…”
I mashed it until the “batter” had tiny lumps. I started with a fork, but realized I could schmoosh (totally a word) it better with the back of the spoon.
Each pancake consisted of about a tablespoon of batter which was put into a lightly greased non-stick fry pan set on medium heat. You may need to play around with the amount and heat level a bit if you try this at home.
After about 2-4 minutes, I flipped ’em and let them cook another 2-4 minutes on the other side.
…and were promptly devoured.
The batter made about 8 silver dollar pancakes.
(As you can tell from the pics, they were not as perfectly round. I’m HUMAN, damnit!)
Whatever the shape, Little Moo didn’t seem to mind as she ate them ALL!
Next time, I’ll try ’em with the cinnamon.
More to come,
