Applesauce Banana Pancakes

I found Very Funny Friday over at Navel Gazing at its Finest. You can find some very funny stories over there and add your own if you want.

Tara at Too Much Information
is doing Flashback Fridays. I would join in but I don't have a scanner. Just wait until I do.

These pancakes are wonderful!!!! This is my go to pancake recipe whether I want the applesauce and banana's or just butter and syrup this is the recipe you want!

Papa actually becomes giddy when I make these.


2 Cups flour
2 TBS. sugar
1 teas. salt
1 Cup buttermilk ( or milk but, buttermilk is better)
4 teas. baking powder
8 eggs ( yes 8 )
6 TBS. vegetable oil
Applesauce, banana's, powdered sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Stir together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine eggs , oil and milk in blender, when well blended add dry ingredients. Blend well. The batter is so thick I have to blend it on high for a minute, scrape down batter from the sides of blender and blend again.

On a large lightly greased griddle or frying pan or whatever, pour enough batter to spread into an 8" pancake. Cook until golden brown on the bottom of pancake then flip to the other side. Sometimes because the batter is so thick the middle of the pancake is not cooked. I just slit the pancake with my spatula, let the uncooked batter ooze from slit (sounds real yummy right) then flip pancake again so oozing batter will get cooked. (Got it?) Some of my kids like it gooey in the middle. Go figure.

When cooked spread applesauce on top of pancake. ( as much as you want, this is not rocket science)
Then top with sliced banana's. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, then cinnamon, then nutmeg.

This is a great way to start the day!
