Banana Sour Cream Pancakes

I love pancakes, if we have an easy going weekend morning, where we are not working or don’t have any set plans, pancakes or waffles are definitely on the lazy weekend morning menu. Usually we have leftovers and they refrigerate well for a few days or even freeze for a quick snack or if you are craving delicious banana-y yumminess on a weekday.
These are awesome! The sour cream & lemon zest make the batter incredible, and once those bananas hit the pan, the sugars in them caramelize creating another layer of goodness.Banana Sour Cream Pancakes
