The cooked bananas form creamy pockets in these hearty pancakes. Serve with warm maple syrup.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 -- eggs beaten
2 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup diced bananas
1 cup chopped, toasted pecans


  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. In another bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk, butter and honey; add to flour mixture and stir until blended.
  2. Oil and preheat a large skillet. Pour batter, using a 1/8-cup measure, into skillet. Arrange banana slices on top and sprinkle on pecans. Flip when bottoms are browned and cook other side. Makes about 20 (4-inch) pancakes.
