Until I get settled back at home, something I made one morning recently and saved for a time I was busy. It tasted just like banana bread, but with a soft, fluffy pancake texture. A hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, paired with vanilla infused syrup was the perfect topping. Partner ate a HUGE stack, and gave them two thumbs up between bites. The recipe serves 2-3, and would easily double

3/4 cup milk at room temperature (I nuked mine for 20 seconds)
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
In a larger bowl (big enough for the final batter) combine
1 cup flour
3 generous Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Penzey's Vietnamese Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt.
In a third (and final) small bowl.
Mash 1 and 1/2 large or 2 small very ripe bananas (skin turning black)
whisk in one extra large or jumbo egg until smooth and fluffy
Continue to whisk in:
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 Tablespoons melted butter (add slowly in a stream while whisking).
Add to flour mixture and stir JUST until combined
Cook by 1/4 cup measures on oiled griddle.
The pancakes may not bubble up quite as much as you're used to, check the bottoms and the temp to avoid burning.
