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.
- 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
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.
