The reaction between the banana, the buttermilk and the baking powder makes these pancakes really fluffy. Hurrah for science!
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. - 17 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 08 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 19 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
