Pancakes are America’s favorite breakfast, different from our dosa. Till now I haven’t tasted any pancake. My hubby say pancakes from IHOP are very sweet, so he is not fan of them, and I have never been there. Why did I think of pancakes all of a sudden? Well because of the same old problem of spotty bananas. I am tired of making banana bread for saving two bananas. Even my little one who is ardent fan of all kinds of banana are started to hate spotty bananas. When I give her, she make all kind of facial expression like her dad, and even threaten to vomit. As I had of no other choice I started searching for recipe other than muffins and banana bread. Finally I came across this recipe . I changed it a little bit.
I made my first banana pancake and it become instant hit. Now I have a way to use my spotty bananas. I also tried making them with whole wheat flour instead of the All purpose flour, and it also came good.
What you need
All purpose flour: ¾ cup
Whole wheat flour: 1/4 cup
Ripe bananas: 2(one mashed thoroughly, where other is cut into thin slices of 1/4 inch thickness)
Baking Powder: ¾ teaspoon
Baking soda: ½ teaspoon
Sugar: 1 tablespoon
Egg: 1 no
Buttermilk: 1 cup (½ cup of thick homemade yogurt+ ½ cup water)
Vanilla extract: ½ teaspoon
Unsalted butter: 1 teaspoon
Oil: 1 tablespoon
How I made
Preheat oven to 200F.
In a large mixing bowl whisk the buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla together until well combined.
In another bowl mix the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar.
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and stir with a spoon to get rid of the lumps. Fold in the mashed banana, melted butter and whisk until batter is smooth. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium low heat and swirl around a one teaspoon of oil to keep the pancakes from sticking. Using a ladle pour the batter into the pan,
Cook the pancakes on 1 side until they are set and then lightly press the bananas into the batter. When small bubbles appear on the uncooked surface, flip the pancakes and cook until golden on both sides, about 8 minutes. Transfer pancakes to a warming plate in the oven while you make the rest.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Yield: 8 pan cakes
Will you make it again: Yes
