The Incredible 29-Cent Fruit Transformation
When your supper ingredients appear to be limited to bananas, eggs and some dry goods from the pantry, turn to these otherworldly pancakes. To make them, you just prepare a standard pancake batter and stir in one mashed banana. Then, when you ladle the batter onto the pan, drop a couple of banana slices onto each cake. A drizzle of honey before flipping allows the fruit to brown as it cooks. And instead of syrup, try the maple-almond sauce that accompanies this recipe; just a little bit takes this dish to the next level.
