  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk

  4. Slice remaining banana and serve on the top of a stack of pancakes. Drizzle with a little extra honey.
“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 ~A single honey bee will visit 50-100 flowers on a single trip out of the hive.~
