Add It to Pancake Batter
Joy the Baker Cookbook author Joy Wilson's pancake batter consists of a buttermilk base flecked with old-fashioned oats, a smattering of chocolate chips and banana slices. The fruit will caramelize if you lay each round individually on top of the batter once you've poured it into the pan; when you flip the pancakes, the bananas will be facedown on the griddle and brown up nicely. Wilson's recipe yields just three regular-size cakes (or one large), hence the name Single Lady Pancakes.
