Sunday morning breakfast, love it...

I'm so lucky to be a 5 minute walk from my church. Actually I consider it a church annex. The "big church" is about a 10 minute drive from my house and has Sunday masses, it also holds confessions, the priests have their offices and home there and the Catholic school is also at the same location. But, there are two small churches in outlying areas, one has just one mass on Sunday at 11:30am and the church down the road from me has just one mass on Saturday evenings at 4:30pm, which is the mass I attend most of the times. So back to breakfast..going to Saturday night mass frees up my Sunday mornings to enjoy with big mugs of coffee and big delicious breakfasts.

Yesterday I made banana pancakes with homemade blackberry syrup and sausages and it was much more delicious than what the picture shows. I'm not a very good photographer but then photography holds 0 interest for me. I have a 4 year old digital camera that I spent 100.00 on and until it breaks that's probably what I'll continue using..

Banana pancakes.

Beat one egg in a large bowl until fluffy. To the fluffy egg add 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, 2 tablespoons of veggie oil, 3 teaspoons of baking powder and a dash of salt and a dash of nutmeg, mix until just smooth. . Don't over mix. Add one peeled and chopped banana to the batter. I use nutmeg only when I make banana pancakes.

Heat a griddle or skillet on a medium high heat, add some oil to coat the skillet, spoon the pancake mixture into the skillet, about 1/3 cup per pancake. The oil should sizzle around the pancake edges. Flip the pancake with a spatula when little holes appear. Keep warm in a slightly heated oven until all the pancakes are cooked. Serve with butter and your favorite syrup.

You need lots of coffee, the newspaper or better still your family to laugh and eat with around the breakfast table.

The picture looks pretty good to me and the pancakes, they look really yummie.

That sounds great. I usually have bananas at the cabin as a fresh fruit when it isn't summer. I canned blackberries to put in pancakes, but I think I'll wait until the heart of winter for those. I don't have many. I wonder what my garden looks like. I'll need to winterize it when I get back. - Margy
