This speckled (well, more than speckled) ripe banana might look disgusting some.

Over-ripened banana/apple for batter for pancakes

But for me, this is just a part of my morn breakfast. This speckled banana was crushed and  paired with a shredded apple. By the way, they are loaded with great fibers, potassium, minerals and other nutrients. These two were subsequently added to a batter made up of:

  • Egg (1)
  • Cinnamon (1/4tsp)
  • Dark sugar (1tbsp)
  • Wholewheat flour (1/2 c)
  • All purpose flour (1tbsp)
  • Baking soda (1/4tsp)
  • Melted butter (pat)
  • Sour cream (1tsp)
  • Salt (pinch)

I didn’t add any milk (well, I need to replenish). My batter was on the lumpy/thick side which was fine with me. It made excellent pancakes that were super-moist and contained just the right amount of sweetness.

As per my pic, I topped my banana/apple pancakes with fresh strawberries/blackberries. With small drizzle of lite pancake syrup, my work was done.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
