Banana & Cream Cheese Pancake Recipe
March 11, 2011

We only had one egg, so we made this much (it was actually ample for the three of us):

one egg
3/4 cup milk
smidge nutmeg or vanilla (optional)
1 tbsp melted butter, cooled

3/4 cup unbleached white flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp table salt
chopped walnuts (or slivered almonds, maybe some chocolate chips or shredded coconut, optional)

150 grams cream cheese (1/2 brick)
1 or 2 ripe bananas

Heat a buttered skillet or griddle.
Mix wet ingredients well. Mix dry ingredients well. Make a well in the dry into which you pour the wet. Mix, but not too well – leave some small lumps.
The batter should be fairly wet so add more milk if necessary.
Let it rest for a moment while you blend the cream cheese and bananas with a wooden spoon.
Use a blender if you are frail or infirm.
Or get a kid to do it.
Otherwise work those biceps. Smoosh and breathe and smoosh. Good times.

Ladle two or three palm sized disks of batter into the hot pan. Let them set for a moment then spoon some filling on.
Now maybe make a cup of coffee or do some dancing.
When they’re ready to flip spoon some more batter on each pancake, but try not to let it spill over the side.

Serve with maple syrup and receive the kudos with saint style grace and satisfaction.

Et voila!
