At Cumberland Falls Banana Macadamia Nut Pancakes

From AT CUMBERLAND FALLS BED AND BREAKFAST INN
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3 Tablespoons of sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 cups of buttermilk (shake well)
3 Tablespoons of butter (melt)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 very ripe banana (large)
1/2 cup salted and roasted macadamia nuts

Put all dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk well. In a separate bowl, add the wet ingredients- buttermilk, butter, vanilla and whisk together until smooth. Add this to the flour mixture and mix only until combined. Over-mixing will result in tough pancakes. Cut bananas into small bits and fold into batter with the nuts. Your batter will be thick.

Melt some butter on a skillet or griddle and pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Cook until underside is golden brown; flipping only once. Do not depress pancakes with spatula. Transfer to large plate loosely covered with tin foil to keep warm. Continue production until batter used.

1/2 teaspoon of finely grated orange zest
1 1/2 teaspoons of fresh orange juice
1/8 teaspoon of salt
