Banana/Banana Pecan Pancakes

These aren't so good for you, but they're oh so good! I leave the pecans out for the kids and add them to the last 1/2 or 1/3 of the batter.

2 eggs
2 c. flour
1 1/2 c. milk
4 tbs melted butter
3 tbs sugar
1 or 1 1/2 ripe mashed bananas
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 c. toasted pecan pieces

Use a mixer to blend everything together. You may need to add more milk or water to get the batter to the right consistency. if you like really fluffy pancakes, add 1 more tbs of baking powder. sprinkle with cinnamon on the plate. My mom always cooks pancakes in butter and then melts it on the top. Tastes so good that way, but i'm too timid and use the spray oil to coat the pan. Serve with warm syrup.
