Banana Sour Cream Pancakes

Banana Sour Cream Pancakes
What to make for breakfast?  On Sundays, I like to make something special we can sit down to and eat as a family.  In my searching  I found this recipe from Ina Garten, "Banana Sour Cream Pancakes."  Just the title of the recipe made my taste buds happy.   The pancake batter is made with your  basic pancake ingredients,  flour, eggs, milk, sugar, salt, and baking powder.  To these ingredients you add sour cream, grated lemon zest, vanilla extract, and bananas.  The bananas are added to the batter as the pancakes are cooking.   The pancakes are served with butter, maple syrup, and confectioner's sugar.
The pancakes were delicious.  I love the flavor grated lemon zest added.  It complimented the tanginess of the sour cream and the sweetness of the bananas.  It was a great breakfast to serve to the family and we all loved the pancakes.  Enjoy them with your family:)
