A new twist on an old recipe

They may have taken different forms, but pancakes have been around, according to some studies, for over 30,000 years. On average, we eat around 7,300 pancakes over our entire lifespan, making it one of the most common foods served. Everything from chocolate chip to bacon pancakes – and almost any other combination you can think of – is possible, but banana pancakes are one of the most popular. They are now a little sweeter and tastier, thanks to the addition of cannabis.

The batter is virtually the same as it is for regular banana pancakes. Heat a skillet or griddle to medium heat. Combine two mashed bananas, two eggs, a pinch of cinnamon and mix well – lumps in the mix are not a problem. Once the skillet (or griddle) is at temperature, add enough oil to barely coat the surface and then pour the batter in quarter-cup parts. When bubbles begin to form, they should be flipped to allow the other side to cook. You can also add CBD chocolate chips prior to flipping.

Once the pancakes are cooked to a golden brown on both sides, remove from the pan and add the topping. The topping consists of two tablespoons of maple syrup, two tablespoons of cannabis-infused coconut oil or butter and a one-eighth teaspoon each of cinnamon, cardamom, clove and ginger. The recipe will only make about 4 pancakes, so it will need to be adjusted depending on the number of hungry stomachs waiting at the table.
