Hello again! It’s Alicia from The Baker Upstairs, and I’m excited to share one of my family’s favorite breakfast recipes with you today. My kids are totally obsessed with these banana pancakes, and request them almost every weekend for breakfast. They’re simple and quick to make, and use ingredients that we nearly always have in the house. They have a fantastic banana flavor, and are totally delicious with butter, syrup, and sliced bananas on top!

We love that these pancakes are so simple, but they really are so packed full of flavor that I think you’ll agree they’re the best banana pancakes. 😀

How to Make Banana Pancakes

The batter takes just a few minutes to mix up, and you don’t even need a mixer! One of the keys to pancake perfection (in my opinion) is to let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes before pouring it onto the hot griddle. I always find that my pancakes are lighter and fluffier if I let the batter rest a little before cooking. It also helps the batter thicken just a little bit, which makes it easier to pour.

Banana Egg Pancake

My griddle has a non-stick ceramic coating, so I don’t ever grease it, but if you’re using cookware that isn’t non-stick, a little butter or cooking spray will help the pancakes come off the pan cleanly.

We ate our banana pancakes drenched in maple syrup, but these pancakes would also be really yummy with peanut butter or Nutella on top, chocolate syrup or even buttermilk syrup. You really can’t go wrong here! These pancakes are so light and fluffy, and taste amazing!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until only small chunks remain. Add the milk, eggs, vanilla, and oil, and mix until combined.

  3. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and mix until just combined (a few small lumps are fine). Let sit 5 minutes.

  4. While the batter is resting, preheat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Spoon the pancake batter onto the hot griddle by ¼ cup scoops. Cook 3-4 minutes, or until bubbles form over the surface of the pancake, then flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.

  5. Serve warm with sliced bananas, butter, and syrup.

    Your offering of recipes is WONDERFUL . Some I tried and were a success, some I still need to try, but my list gets bigger after every email I read. The pancake recipe in your email of 3/16, you mention a Buttermilk Syrup. Might you have a recipe for it. I make gluten free pancakes and this syrup sounds like I could try it also.

    Thank you for all your hard work in keeping all your FOODIE friends HAPPY.
