3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar

2 - 12 oz cans evaporated milk
2 Tbsp oil (canola oil), plus 1/4 c extra oil for cooking
2 tsp vanilla
6 - 4 oz containers of banana baby food (Gerber brand)
2 eggs, well beaten

Optional mix-ins or toppings:
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Toppings only:
2 sliced bananas
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 bottle pancake syrup

At home: combine flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar in a gallon size zip top bag.

In camp: Add milk, oil, bananas, eggs, and any mix-ins to bag. Gently squeeze air out of zip top bag. Thoroughly mix batter in bag.

Heat large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add cooking oil, about 1/2 tsp per pancake.

Cut a small corner out of the zip top bag. Pour an approximate 6 inch pancake into pan. Store bag with cut corner side up in a bowl.

Allow pancake to cook until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and begin to pop. After this happens, turn the pancake with a pancake turner (spatula). Cook a minute or two longer before putting on serving plate.

Allow patrol members to top their own pancakes. Serves 6-8
