{Banana Pancakes & Sweet Champagne}

Happy Monday!! The weekend went by SO fast and I didn't do nearly as much as I had hoped! We DID manage to get to the Social Security Office to change my last name, take a walk with the crazy little dog and make homemade BANANA PANCAKES for dinner Saturday night! Ummm,.. these were AMAZING! Just look how yummy they are!!!!!
As you can see, I slaved away in the kitchen making breakfast for dinner!
Actually, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make pancakes from scratch!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas, mashed

Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.
Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.
I topped these with a bit of margarine, maple syrup, sliced banana pieces, whipped cream and chopped walnuts and served it up with a glass of pink champagne! Rest assured, we WILL be having these again SOON!

If you couldn't already tell they were yummy, here is my last bite (before I went back for two more cakes an hour later) :)
