Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

One of the good things about the weekend is that you have more time to make a good breakfast. It had been a while since I last had pancakes and I was craving them. I had some over overripe bananas in the freezer and I though they would go nicely in the pancakes. I also had some buttermilk in the fridge so it became banana buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup. They turned out pretty good. They were nice and moist and fluffy. I enjoyed the banana flavour of the pancakes. I garnished the pancakes with slices of bananas and some pecans. They were a great way to start off a day on the weekend.

Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
2 overripe bananas (mashed)

Directions:
1. Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
2. Mix the buttermilk, egg, butter and bananas in another bowl.
3. Mix the wet and dry ingredients making sure to not over mix.
4. Heat a pan and melt a touch of butter in it.
5. Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture into the pan and heat until the surface starts to bubble and the bottom is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
6. Flip the pancake and cook the other side until the bottom is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.

Hmmm. Interesting. I've never put mashed bananas in our banana pancakes. I always throw the slices onto the batter after I've ladled it onto the griddle. I'll have to check out this method!

If there was ever a time I make (I mean, cook) breakfast. I do eat pancakes for breakfast but it's at Dennys. Now you know why I yearn for your pancakes. They are so much better in many ways! I know!

only three pancakes for a serving? what are you thinking, man!? i have a feeling that a meal involving these pancakes would lead to a)changing into sweatpants, b)taking a nap, or c)all of the above. masterful!

Chuck said...

Hey Kevin,

I bet those fluffy, delicious looking banana pancakes taste like a banana bread. Looks amazing!

chriesi said...

Oh that is funny. I made some buttermilk pancakes today. :) Looks yummy.

You have totally inspired me to make pancakes! I love eating them but never thought of making my own!

giz said...

I've always sliced bananas into pancakes, never thought of doing the mash and adding them to the mix - what a great idea. You just opened a new door for me - thanks for that - and they look delicious and all that maple syrup goodness -drool.

Lisa said...

These look amazing Kevin. I can just imagine these with my Dad's homemade maple syrup. I too enjoy making a fancier breakfast on the weekend.

You are swiftly becoming one of my fave peeps: every time I'm looking for a fab recipe, Google sends me right to you. Love it.

These were great for breakfast.

selfy said...

Those look fantastic. I had complained about the March '09 pancakes being burnt, but these are perfect.

ya ya's mom said...

love love loved these pancakes, as did my hubs and four year old!!! thanks for all the great recipes!!!

love your blog!

Juliver said...

These did not work for me. Pancakes with fruit puree never turn out fluffy. Instead they are always soggy in the middle and never fluffy like the picture.

Elisa @ What the Vita said...

This was delicious for me! I used one banana instead of two and it was perfect. YUM.

Lisi DeSwart said...

Your pancakes are possible the moistest, fluffy, and tender looking on google images. It goes without saying that I will be making them for breakfast tomorrow! I featured pancakes on my humble food site, but they looked nowhere near as good as yours: http://funfoodfeed.com/2012/03/
