Apparently, Indian literature recommended nutmeg for bad breath, fever and headaches. Arabians used nutmeg as a stomach remedy and an aphrodisiac. Interesting, this little nut.

Where were we? Ah, yes. Pancakes.

For this recipe, use bananas that are a tad over ripe. The darker the better. They are sweeter and mash easier. Nutmeg compliments sweet dishes very well. The vanilla essence shall also enhance the sweetness and aroma.
