Directions (honey butter):

1. Melt honey and butter together by placing them in a bowl and microwaving for 1 minute. Stir together and pour into a jar. Let set in the fridge overnight (can still drizzle melted over pancakes!).

Directions (pancakes):

2. Heat your griddle, and pour out your batter for pancakes. Slice your banana and place rounds on top of cake. Brush bananas with melted honey butter. Wait til the cakes are bubbling on top, then flip and let cook for about another minute, or until pancakes are browned on both sides.

3. Serve warm with honey butter and maple syrup (and bacon, if you're so inclined). Enjoy!
