Banana Pancakes

Hmmmm... What can I do with this one lonely banana???
I need two for banana bread and three for banana cake... Oh, I know!! Banana pancakes!! Yummmm! They are so good, and easily made with stuff you probably already have!
Now you can cook these on a non stick pan or griddle (this is what I usually do), but for a really heavenly treat, melt a tablespoon of butter in the pan before you pour your batter and then sprinkle chopped pecans over the uncooked batter and finally top with pure maple syrup. I swear, it taste like butter pecan ice cream.
Now, let's get cookin. First you'll need one of these little helpers.
They are invaluable for mashing bananas, stirring eggs and pouring things!
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 egg
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup pecans (optional)

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add wet ingredients and beat with a wire whisk just until smooth. Stir in pecans.

Heat lightly buttered griddle to 350 degrees or a skillet over med/high heat. Spread 1/4 cup batter onto pan. Cook until bubbles form (2-3 min). Turn pancakes and continue cooking until brown. Serve with butter and syrup.
