Day 101 : Banana Pancakes

It seems as if I am on a banana roll lately!  I guess it could be because that’s one of the things my littlest eats the most as far as table food and I like to find new ways to incorporate that for him.  I decided tonight I would try a banana recipe I came across because I figured it would work for everyone since my very picky eater recently decided he liked pancakes…. but it wasn’t a hit for him lol.

When making the batter I tasted a bit and felt it was bland so I added a bit more sugar… maybe a tsp or so.  I also realized midway through making them that I did not have any cardamom on hand so I subbed in some cinnamon instead.  I worried that such a small amount of pancake would go unnoticed completely, but the flavor was there, just in a subtle way.  I topped them with the left over marscapone “frosting” from the other day and some banana slices so that really helped to boost the banana in them.
