Follow singer-songwriter Jack Johnson’s lead and make Banana Pancakes “and pretend like it’s the weekend.” When the bananas hit the griddle they caramelize and sweeten even more, adding a great depth of flavor to the already delicious pancakes. Banana Pancakes are a decadent way to enjoy breakfast on the weekend—or on a weekday, for that matter. We won’t tell.
