Author: Sylvia's - Harlem, NY
  • 2/3 Cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 Cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 1/3 Cups milk
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 1 medium ripe banana, finely chopped
  1. Combine flours, baking powder, and salt in mixing bowl.
  2. Mix together milk and oil and stir into dry mixture just enough to moisten all ingredients without lumps, then fold in banana.
  3. Spoon onto hot, well greased griddle. Turn once.
Sylvia's comments: "I mashed the banana instead of chopping it. Everyone liked them fine."
