2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons sugar

Sift flour with baking powder, salt, nutmeg and sugar into medium bowl.
With rotary beat, beat egg.  Add milk and butter; beat until well mixed.
Pour into dry ingredients; beat only until combined - batter will be lumpy.
Add to batter banana and lemon juice.
Meanwhile, slowly heat griddle or heavy skillet.  To test temperature, drop a little cold water onto hot griddle; water should roll off in drops.
Use about ¼ cup batter for each griddlecake; cook until bubbles form on surface and edges become dry.  Turn; cook 2 minutes longer, or until nicely browned on underside.  Serve with whipped butter.
