May's Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes
Why I Love This Recipe
“In the kitchen May and Rosaleen were working on pancake batter. … The trashcan was full of banana peels, and the electric percolator bubbled into the tiny glass nozzle on top of it. Bloop, bloop. I loved the way it sounded, the way it smelled. … May drizzled batter on the griddle in the shape of a big L. ‘This one’s yours,’ she said. L for Lily." -Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

Ingredients You'll Need
2 cups flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
2 tbs honey
50g butter or margerine, melted
In a large mixing bowl, combine flower, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
In a medium-size bowl, beat the egg. Add the milk, oil, and honey, and mix well.
Pour the egg mixture over the flour mixture and stir until smooth. Toss the apple slices into the batter.
In a large frying pan or skillet, melt a pat of butter or margarine over medium heat. Use a ladle or measuring cup to pour about 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan or skillet.
When the pancake bubbles, lift it with a spatula and peek underneath. IF it looks tan, flip it over. When the other side looks tan, remove the pancake from the skillet. Continue until all the batter is used up. Top with whipped cream or syrup.
