Banana Pancakes

Many weekend mornings, I would ask my dad to make banana pancakes for breakfast. His were always the best because he mashed the banana and added it to the batter, instead of chopping it. The banana flavor went throughout the pancake rather than just getting the flavor when you bit into a piece.

Banana pancakes are by far my favorite type of pancake. These pancakes have a familiar taste of banana bread to them. Yum!
