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.
Banana Buttermilk Pancakes
- 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)
- Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
- Mix the buttermilk, egg, butter and bananas in another bowl.
- Mix the wet and dry ingredients making sure to not over mix.
- Heat a pan and melt a touch of butter in it.
- 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.
- Flip the pancake and cook the other side until the bottom is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.

hi Kevin, thanks for visitin my blog. my family loves pancake for breakfast too!
those look wonderful! My husband has been trying to make pancakes and waffles on the weekends… I’ll be pointing this recipe out to him for next weekend! Yum!
Nothing better than having extra time to enjoy a nice breakfast like that. Those look so nice and fluffy. Yum.
Banana pancakes! It doesn’t get any better on a lazy Saturday morning! They look great!
Those look wonderfully fluffy! And maple syrup is always a good thing.
Good way of finding a bright side to all of this snow.

Elly over at Elly Says Opa has had me thinking of banana pancakes…one of her readers entered them in her event…a song from Jack Johnson…thanks for reminding me of them again:D
my overripe bananas never look that good – i always have to mash them up into breads and what not!
check out my latest blog post 🙂
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!
What an amazingly delicious looking photo! I’ll have that for breakfast tomorrow please.
I am definitely having banana pancakes tomorrow morning. Thanks for the inspiration!

Kevin what can I say, your banana pancakes look sensational, yum 🙂
Wow…the pancakes look delicious!!! We just had them today from McDonalds 🙂 But these look way tastier.
This is wonderful Kevin!!! But you amazing me dear, How you have time to cook a lot??? And all wonderful!!! This looks so yummy! xxGloria
Pass them over in my direction, please. NOW!
I could have pancakes any time of the day. *licks lips*
What a great idea to put the banana in the batter. Looks delicious!
I was craving pancakes last week, but the ones I made weren’t that great. I want some of these!
The husband do like pancakes, especially raspberry ones. I’m going to bookmarks this recipe for the weekend.
Hi Kevin, I just caught sight of your pancakes as the page opened and I gasped with joy!! Your pancakes just look so wonderful!! I just wish I could eat them off the screen right now 😉
A. Grace says
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!
I bet those fluffy, delicious looking banana pancakes taste like a banana bread. Looks amazing!
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!
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.
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.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I love this photo. The missing triangle absolutely makes it! The recipe sounds delicious, too.
Look sooo delicious. Really great photo.
Nora B. says
Yumm! You combined a few of my favourite things – banana, pancakes…and I hope that it’s real maple syrup that you used 😉
I’ve been seeing some incredible pancake recipes lately. These look delicious!
oh that looks all sorts of yummy. i’ve been on a major pancake crave, and i think that will do the trick this weekend!
These look heavenly! There’s nothing like pancakes on a weekend morning:)

Time & time again, pancakes win people over for brekkie…just look at all the comments!
oh boy, what a wonderful treat.
Wow, these look so fluffy delicious!
Craft Fairy says
Well, I must say that these pancakes look anything but boring. I really want to eat them now.
I tried this recipe, and it was great! But btw add cinnamon, and it’s even greater 😉

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.
((I make your sausage and lentils over greens once every month))
Those look fantastic. I had complained about the March ’09 pancakes being burnt, but these are perfect.
ya ya's mom says
love love loved these pancakes, as did my hubs and four year old!!! thanks for all the great recipes!!!
love your blog!
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 says
This was delicious for me! I used one banana instead of two and it was perfect. YUM.

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/
Mine turned out a little flat and wet, so I added 1/4 cup more flour and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda (because of the buttermilk) and it really fluffed them up 100 percent.
