Shrove...Fat...Pancake... Tuesday

Final chance to finish off all that butter and cream before lent...well that's how the story goes...


So how did I celebrate Fat Tuesday??? With banana, chocolate chip pancakes and blackberry syrup...at the diner and at home, yum!


Start with your typical buttermilk pancake recipe...buttermilk, egg, brown sugar, butter...





Add flour, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips, mix, but not too much, lumps are fine...






Melt some butter into a frying pan or grill, pour pancakes, slice some bananas and place on top...and flip when bubbles start to show...




Serve banana side up, add a dollop of butter, a dusting of icing sugar and some warm syrup....

These are so yummy...give them a try, fat Tuesday or not!

Those pancakes look so good! It was so good to see you briefly before I went to the airport. That was some good chili and I especially liked the biscuits. - Margy
