#TastyBits: Easy Cinnamon + Banana Scratch Cakes


Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, but I rarely eat it during “breakfast”hours. On the weekends I’m a lazy, slow riser and usually don’t get to eating my first meal until Noon.

A quick and easy recipe that’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner are my Cinnamon + Banana Scratch Cakes. These scratch cakes are customizable and  that’s what makes this recipe fun!

I add a ton of other stuff besides cinnamon and bananas to my scratch cakes. Semi-sweet, mini chocolate morsels, a dash of vanilla and a pinch of sea salt are my top three things to add to the scratch cake batter.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet mini chocolate morsels
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla  and mashed bananas.
  3. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.
  5. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.
  6. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.

 

My crowd pleasing Cinnamon + Banana Scratch Cakes are even better when topped with your favorite granola, fresh strawberries and a ton of powdered sugar. Adding extra bananas on top is a brilliant idea as well. – Enjoy!
