I don’t know about you, but at the end of every week, I always find that I have leftover overripe bananas. This recipe has saved my bananas from being wasted and has revived my love of pancakes.

Although these pancakes are wonderful eaten plain, my favorite topping is a warm mixed berry compote — it seems complicated, but it is really not.
