Did you ever watch Buffy The Vampire Slayer?

I did when it was on the air and I am rewatching it now and I am still in love with it all. Plus, Angel too. It was great then and still great now. (And I watch Bones too since David Boreanaz ages like a fine wine…)

Not only am I rewatching them, I am watching them in chronological order, per “The Watcher’s Council“, of course. Why does that matter? Well, there was a lot of cross over between Buffy and its spin-off show Angel. So certain episodes should be watched in a certain order, for best enjoyment.

I highly suggest that you rewatch the series or give it a start if you haven’t watched it before. At the very least the fashion and use of flip phones are highly amusing.

Maybe you can make a big stack of these Browned Butter Buttermilk Banana Pancakes and cozy up to Hulu to binge watch on some Buffy and Angel. I highly suggest it.

Move aside popcorn, pancakes are better!

Brown butter, bananas, and pancakes… they solve all problems.

Just like David Boreanaz’s abs.

Browned Butter Buttermilk Banana Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup butter, plus butter for cooking the pancakes
  • 1 large very ripe banana (if your bananas are small then use 2)
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Cups buttermilk
  • 2 1/2 Cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Serve with slices of banana and maple syrup

Process

  1. Brown the butter following these instructions. Let cool, to prevent cooking the eggs.
  2. In a large bowl, or in a bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the banana, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract together.
  3. Add the butter and buttermilk and mix well.
  4. Gently fold in the remaining ingredients. The batter should be incorporated together well but still a bit lumpy.
  5. In a skillet over medium low heat, melt butter. Add a ladle (approx 1/4 Cup) of batter to the skillet. Cook gently until a generous amount of bubbles appear, then flip. Cook another few minutes until done. Serve with sliced bananas and maple syrup.
