You guys know I’ve been a little obsessed with Barney Butter lately, eating it straight out of the jar even, so when I saw Heather’s recipe for Barney Butter pancakes, I knew I had to make them asap. Today was the day since I had the time and all the ingredients on hand… and to make it a little more interesting, I have progress photos for you. I added bananas because bananas make everything better! 😀 Oh, and I used whole wheat pastry flour and only used 1 tsp of baking powder instead of a tablespoon… a whole tablespoon just seemed like too much, but I’m still a newbie at cooking. Was I right?
The whole gang…
Mix everything together… pretty attractive stuff, heh? 😉
Don’t worry, it gets prettier The assembly line…
Pancakes in the making. PS, I like to add bananas directly to the individual pancakes on the pan for a more even distribution. I used a 1/4 cup measuring spoon to measure out the dough in order to make sure the pancakes are pretty even in size.
This batch made 7 pancakes… I had 3 with some coffee and a tsp of maple syrup for dipping. Dusting them with some powdered sugar is optional, but powdered sugar always makes things extra fancy, I think 😀
The pancakes were quite nice, but the Barney Butter flavor was extremely subtle (in fact, I may have not been able to taste it at all). Maybe next time I’ll use chunky BB for a more pronounced BB flavor… or even add a little more BB. The only problem with that of course is that this stuff is pretty caloric. Any suggestions from you guys on how to make these more Barney Butter tasting?
Oh, and the bananas caramelized deliciously and were an awesome addition if I say so myself. Yum!
Drooling yet? 😉
