Have you made banana pancakes? Not pancakes topped with bananas and maple syrup, a la the traditional topping recipe; no, these are pancakes made put of banana as their base.

My fair greetings to the world! What an absence it has been and I certainly plan to explain all that – but as per the title I stand that it was not my fault.
