Moonlighting as a foodie blogger - Pancakes

As you may know, I'm one of those allergic people who make cooking for them a nightmare.  But, because of those allergies, I have been experimenting with different flours and combinations of flours for a good 7 years.  It has taken me that long to perfect my pancake recipe.  
Now, if you're like me when visiting blogs for recipes, you skip the long essay preamble about the recipe and just go for the recipe.  So, I'm just putting it out here, first up. Even before the (not so perfect) picture. You're welcome!

Okay, so if you don't know how to make pancakes, here's my method:  Get out a frying pan and put some oil on it, not lots, just enough to coat the surface.  Turn the heat to medium low and wait for the pan to heat up. Once the pan is hot, scoop the batter in < 1/4 cup quantities onto it.  Watch them closely for bubbles forming.  Once the bubble start to pop (even just one bubble!) flip! give them a few minutes, but check to be sure they don't burn.  take them off the heat and repeat until the batter is gone! 

Oh, also, really mash those bananas... no lumps! or you'll get gross pockets of soft hot banana....  Unless you like soft hot banana mush... Which in that case, lump away.... I use an immersion blender to really really really mush those bananas.

Top with whatever you would like! peanut butter, jam, maple syrup, cheezewhiz..... Ok.. maybe not cheezewhiz. but you get the picture, it's up to you!

Now: the glamour shot! Isn't it beautiful?

Maybe I should stick to my day job.... spin all the fibres! 

Happily spinning (and eating pancakes),
