Banana Pancakes

Easy to make banana pancakes from scratch. It is made from ripe mashed bananas, flour, egg, baking powder, soda, sugar and milk.  It only takes a few extra minutes to mix up pancakes from scratch as it does to use pancake mix and it is cheaper.  The pancake is a little denser then a standard pancake that is light and fluffy because of the banana it the batter.  It is tender and favorable.

The recipe makes 14 pancakes and the extra can be refrigerated to eat the next day or frozen up to a month.  I like to make a double recipe so I freeze some for a quick breakfast.  Freeze on a cookie sheet and then stack into a plastic bag.  This way they will not stick together while frozen.  Just heat in the oven or microwave.  Serve with additional sliced bananas and your favorite syrup.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup milk

Directions:

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together and set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, beat together egg, mashed bananas, and sugar until smooth and blended.  Add half flour mixture and half of milk to mashed bananas mixtures and blend.  Add the rest and beat until completely mixed.  Don’t over mix or pancakes will not be tender.

In a large skillet heat 2 tablespoons oil.  Pour 1/4 cup batter in skillet to make a pancake. Fry until edges is dry and slightly brown.  Bubbles should be broken on top of pancake. Flip over and fry the other side until brown.  Remove pancake and serve. This pancake will be a little denser then a standard pancake because of the banana but the flavor is excellent.

      Thanks. I was given a bunch of bananas and needed a way to use them. I looked at recipes that would use what I had on hand and this was the result.

      I freeze pancakes often for a quick breakfast and nothing goes to waste. I have been making a few changes with this blog and venturing out to other social media. It will be interesting to see what comes of it.

      Thanks for your comments.

  3. I made some earlier in August when the grandkids were staying over. My daughter had me put about 5 chocolate chips on the pancake after it was on the griddle. She use a spoon to push the chip into the batter to make sure it was covered by batter. This prevents the chip from melting and burning will the 2nd side cookes. We topped with powdered sugar. Delicious

      Spelt flour is not that common here. I have found it a few times to make noodles. Buckwheat is easy to find and I use it. Thanks for your comment.
