Banana Nut Pancakes

I'd first like to apologize for the infrequent posts. The both of us have been very busy as well as having technical difficulties with our camera. This recipe is based on the one in The Joy of Cooking, and I have to say it is one of the best. The delicate bananas and the crunch of the nuts make it even better. Feel free to add whatever toppings you want though.

1 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons baking powder
l/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups milk, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
3 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 bananas, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
vegetable oil

1. Mix together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, melted butter, and vanilla.
3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk vigorously, until combined. Do not overmix! The batter will have lumps, but this is okay.
4. Heat a frying pan over medium low heat. Dampen a paper towel with vegetable oil and quickly wipe the frying pan with it.
5. Add 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Add a few slices of bananas and a sprinkle of nuts to each pancake. Cook for 2 minutes until brown. Flip with a spatula and cook for another minute.
6. Place cooked pancakes in a 200 degree oven to keep warm. Cook additional pancakes with remaining batter.
7. Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!
