~ Banana Pancakes ~ Awesome!

Cassie *


My sons favorite pancakes. When he was 3 years old, this is what he always asked for " Nanner Cakes. Until this day he will eat these tender cakes, until the batter is gone. Now, that's some love!

Sometimes I'll add some chocolate chips and other time, he spreads on some peanut butter. Matters not how you serve them, they're yummy!

How to Make ~ Banana Pancakes ~ Awesome!


  1. Combine dry ingredients, set aside. ( flour, salt, baking powder and sugar.)
  2. Mash banana's - set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, oil and banana.
  4. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet, don't over stir, there will be lumps.
  5. Have a lightly greased griddle or frying pan heated over medium heat. If using my electric griddle I turn the heat to 375. If using a skillet I use medium heat, and adjust if cooking too fast.

    Once pan is hot enough, to where a drop of water sizzles and dissipates quickly. Pour your desired amount of batter into pan and I always spread, just a little.
    Once it starts browning around the edges and small bubbles appear throughout the cake, I flip to the other side. Cook on that side until center is no longer doughy.
  6. Serve with butter, syrup, nuts, chocolate chips, etc,etc.
