Banana Pancakes

2 Jun

Three banana pancakes with syrup.

The following banana pancakes recipe produces approximately 12 medium sized pancakes.
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup of skim milk
  • 2 tbsps of melted unsalted butter (TIP: melt the butter in the same pan you plan to cook the banana pancakes in.  This way you don’t need to butter your pan once you start cooking your pancakes.)
  • 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of baking soda (or baking powder)
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, honey, egg, milk, butter and vanilla.  Mix well.  In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda (or powder) and cinnamon. Mix well.  Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredient bowl.  Combine well.

Two ripe bananas in the process of being mashed.

All the wet ingredients (milk, egg, melted butter, honey, vanilla extract and mashed bananas) combined together.

Dry ingredients (flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda) in a small mixing bowl.

Pancake batter (after combining the dry and wet ingredients).

Pancake batter portioned into a 1/4 cup.

Heat a buttered pan on high.  Once it’s hot, scoop about 1/4 cup of pancake batter and place it into the pan.  Repeat until the pan is full but do not overcrowd.  Turn down the heat to medium.

Three pancakes each portioned into 1/4 cups of batter. They turned out more oval than circular but I promise they taste just the same.

Once the batter begins to bubble (about one to two minutes), it’s time to flip them over.  After flipping, I like to spread a little butter on top of each pancake.

Pancakes flipped after cooking for about one minute.

After another minute or so, flip the pancake again and place a little more butter on each pancake.  The pancake should be done, if not leave on the heat for about another minute but be watchful as they burn easily.  Serve warm and if desired, add syrup.
