Banana pancakes can be totally awesome if you know what you are doing. The reaction between the bananas and the buttermilk combined with the dual action baking powder makes these super fluffy. Huzzah for science!

Directions

  • Whisk together the buttermilk and eggs in a bowl until evenly blended; set aside. Stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate large bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the buttermilk mixture and mashed bananas, being careful not to over mix the batter (the batter will be lumpy). Let the batter sit for at least 1 minute before using.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

Okay 5 stars based on how I made them. Cut the buttermilk to 3/4C used 1.25C flour 1.25t baking powder four bananas and about 1/2T honey. Really really good; lots of banana flavor moist and fluffy. This made about 12 6" pancakes. Next time I may add some oatmeal as well.

it worked out to be too liquidy and the flavour while nicely flavoured with banana was not favoured by the family....will not try this again.

I can't give full stars since I did some tweaking but this is a good base. I increased the flour by 1/2 a cup I used whole wheat flour and added vanilla and 1 tbsp of brown sugar to the batter as well as a pinch of nutmeg. The result was pretty spectacular. My family asks for these every Sunday.

Ok don't know why this gets such poor reviews! I followed the tweaking given in the reviews used 3/4 cup buttermilk 1 1/4 tsp double acting baking powder and 4 over-ripe bananas. These were fluffy with the creamy banana in the middle and full of banana flavor plus they smelled fricken' awesome when cooking! Here's a hint people: when mashing the bananas use an actual "masher" not a blender or food processor. Also mix this by hand with a wisk not a hand mixer. That's how this becomes too liquidy. Don't over mix just mix until all the dry ingredients are incorporated and the batter is lumpy. Let the batter stand while you get your skillet heated up ( 1-3 minutes). Also make sure you grease your skillet or pan and use low to medium heat otherwise these will get burnt before they are done in the middle. Follow these tips and this recipe WILL be awesome! Next time I'm gonna put cinnamon and chopped nuts in it and it'll kick butt!

These came out way too runny! I would reccomend using 1/2 the amount of buttermilk or making them into crepes instead. They did have great flavor though!

Batter was too liquidy so I added more flour. There just wasn't much taste to it at all. The only salvaging this recipe was adding chocolate chips. Never again!
