“Baby, you hardly even notice when I try to show you this song is meant to keep you from doing
what you’re supposed to. Waking up too early maybe we can sleep in, I’ll make you banana
pancakes. Pretend like it’s the weekend now.”
–Jack Johnson “Banana Pancakes”
Sunday morning, as I mentioned in my Weekend Recap, was spent drinking mimosas and eating banana pancakes. We bought 5lbs of bananas at Produce Junction on Saturday and had to use them! The plate below is Bryan’s. (I could only eat 3. My eyes were bigger than my stomach) Lets just say he liked them so much that there were none left after he was done with them!
Banana Pancakes— makes approx. 10 pancakes
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- In bowl 1: mix together flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt.
- In bowl 2: mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla and bananas.
- Stir bowl 1 into bowl 2. The batter will be a tad lumpy, because of the bananas.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.
- Pour the batter into the pan using approx. 1/4 cup for each pancake.
- Once the pancake starts to slightly bubble, flip over.
- Cook for approx. 1-2 minutes on other side.
- Serve hot with syrup. Enjoy!
I can’t wait to make these pancakes again! My favorite part were the lumps of bananas. Next time, I will probably top each pancake with a few strawberry pieces for even more fruity flavor. With or without the strawberries, these pancakes are a win.
