Ginger, Nutmeg, & Cinnamon Pancakes w/ Banana Foster Syrup

Here is the recipe for the pancakes:
1 C. Flour
2 T. Sugar
2 t. Baking powder
1/4 t. Salt
2 Eggs, Beaten
1 C. Milk
2 T. Cooking Oil
3 T. Sour Cream
2 t. Ginger Powder
1 t. Cinnamon
1/2 t. Nutmeg
I don't like lumpy batter and there never seems to be a sure way of getting rid of them, but this method works most of the time for me.
1. Add all of the dry ingredients together.
2. Slowly pour in about 1/4 c milk and stir until it becomes a big blob, then add another 1/4 c milk and stir vigorously until lumps are almost gone about 1 minute then slowly add in the rest of the milk. If you have a better method please let me know.
3. Add eggs, oil and sour cream.
4. Add a little butter to pan cook on med heat and cook as usual.
These will not be your big fluffy pancakes, I hate those, these will be light but flat, just the way I like them. If you like more flavor add more of the spices.
Alternate: Use a pancake mix and add extra egg, sour cream, and spices.

Banana Foster Syrup ( This comes from my sister Jennifer Hedrick)
2 Sticks Margarine
(don't use real butter it hates this recipe!)
1/3 C. Brown Sugar
2 Bananas cut up

1 T. Vanilla

Put all ingredients  EXCEPT vanilla into a small pot and bring to a boil on medium heat, let boil for about 3-5 minutes until bananas are nice and soft , take off heat and add vanilla. Serve over pancakes.
Alternate: This is also good without the bananas.

  1. You're not supposed to vigorously beat pancake batter, ever. It is supposed to have lumps. Just mix dry, add wet (making sure to beat eggs first) and stir just until blended. You won't end up with lumps in the pancakes.
