    Pour the batter into the hot pan, return the pan to the oven, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the pancake has puffed and is golden brown.

    Meanwhile, in a large skillet, combine the lime juice and brown sugar, and cook over medium heat until the sugar has melted. Add the sliced bananas and cook for 3 minutes, or until the bananas have softened. Stir in the walnuts.
