I guess Tuesday was National Pancake Day? I didn’t know that, but somehow I ended up making a pancake for breakfast 😀
You know I have had the love for Kodiak cakes lately:
This was super easy and delicious. This serves one. No sharing! I used an 8-inch oven safe skillet for this.
Turn on the broiler in your oven. Place pan on between medium and medium-high and spray with non-stick coating. Slice a banana in 1/2 inch slices and place in the pan.
I will hit this side with a little spritz of non-stick as well, just to keep everything mobile. Cook for a couple minutes until you see the bananas start to become translucent on the bottom. Then flip.
Noms. These are good just like this on oatmeal, too. I will put cinnamon on these as well. Now sprinkle 1 tablespoon of brown sugar on the banana slices.
Mix up a serving of Kodiak cake mix in a bowl. I used the whole 1/2 cup of water this time (normally I don’t for fluffier cakes). Pour evenly over the banana mixture.
Like with any pancake mix, lumps don’t matter. Now let this cook until bubbles form and you can see the edge puff up. It takes just a minute or two.
See how the brown sugar is oozing up with the bubbles? Yes, indeed.
Now stick the whole pan under the broiler.
Do not walk away. Don’t do it. It takes a minute or two under the broiler to cook the top. Don’t forget the oven mitt when taking the pan out.
Loosen around the edges and flip the pan upside down over a plate and the cake should fall out pretty much in one piece. You need to do this right away while the sugar is liquid. Otherwise it will stick to the pan.
Only one little bit stuck on me. I’m not sure how this picture looks, but trust me – this is so good! It’s got 14 grams of protein, too! Woo!
