Banana pancakes

Banana pancakes / Panquequinhas de banana

I love holidays – who doesn’t? :)

Lazy days like today call for a special breakfast, like these banana pancakes – they are delicious with fresh fruit, especially strawberries. A wonderful way to start the day. :)

Banana pancakes / Panquequinhas de banana

Banana pancakes
from Simple Essentials Fruit

2 cups + 2 tablespoons (300g) all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup (116g) brown sugar, packed
1 cup (240ml) buttermilk
2 eggs
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1 ½ tablespoons (21g) unsalted butter
½ cup maple syrup or honey, to serve

Place the flour, baking powder, sugar, buttermilk, eggs and bananas in a large bowl and mix to combine. heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add a little of the butter and pour 1/3 cup (80ml) of the mixture into the pan and cook, in batches, until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn the pancakes and cook for 1 minute or until golden. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
Serve in stacks layered drizzled with the maple syrup or honey.

Serves 4 – I halved the recipe, used ¼ cup (60ml) of batter per pancake and got 12

I am not really a fan of pancakes but if someone were to make it for me, just like that, in front of me, I would not say NO. :)

My favorite way to eat banana pancakes is with condensed milk and of course, more fresh bananas! :)

I love my banana pancakes with chocolate chips or date syrup on. These look delicious and love how they use buttermilk

I have not been loving my pancake recipes lately. These look heavenly. My kids aren't banana fans. What do you think of swapping out the bananas for sweet potatoes? I will let you know how they come out!
