Griddle-Fried Banana Bread Introduction:
Welcome to Griddle-Fried Banana Bread paradise! This sinful, delicious, southern comfort food will have you licking your plate clean every time. It’s a simple, family-friendly recipe that can be switched up with different flavor profiles depending on your tastes.

Alternative Flavor Style Options:
For a more savory twist, swap out the maple syrup and honey for a mix of cream cheese and Parmesan. Use more garlic in your batter and top the finished product with crunchy nuts or bacon bits. For a sweet-and-sour treat, add some tart fruits to the batter (chopped apples or cherries) and drizzle with a tangy balsamic glaze.

Ingredients Needed:
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 2 ripe Bananas
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ½ cup butter, melted
• ½ cup brown sugar
• 1 egg, beaten
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 2 tablespoons maple syrup
• 2 tablespoons cream cheese (optional)

Steps to Prepare the Dish:
1. Preheat your griddle to 350°F.
2. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth.
3. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
4. Add the melted butter, brown sugar, egg, honey, and maple syrup to the mashed bananas and stir until just combined.
5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined.
6. Grease the griddle with butter or oil and spoon the batter onto the griddle by the spoonful.
7. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until golden and cooked through.
8. Place the griddle-fried banana bread on a plate and top with maple syrup, honey and cream cheese (optional).

Helpful Hack:
If you’re in a rush, don’t worry about mashing the bananas and just add them to the batter whole. The slices of banana will stand out and make for a delicious presentation once the bread is cooked.

Tips and Suggestions:
This griddle-fried banana bread is excellent served with a scoop of ice cream, sweetened yogurt, or whipped cream. You can also add a few slices of banana to your batter for an extra texture and flavor. For a lower fat alternative, substitute half of the butter with coconut oil or applesauce. Enjoy!
