Buttermilk banana pancakes

    30 min

    The reaction between the banana, the buttermilk and the baking powder makes these pancakes really fluffy. Hurrah for science!

    Makes: 10 pancakes

    • 475ml buttermilk
    • 2 eggs
    • 125g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 225g mashed bananas

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Whisk buttermilk and eggs together in a bowl until evenly blended; set aside. Stir flour, baking powder and salt together in a separate large bowl. Make a well in the centre 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.
    2. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat and lightly grease with cooking oil or spray. Pour about 60ml of batter onto the pan for each pancake; cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula and cook until golden brown 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.  -  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)
