Banana Pancakes

This is my first time making pancakes! I know...I know...and my daughter loves pancakes too. What kind of mother am I? I haven't had pancakes since I was a child and my mother made corn pancakes with the Jiffy Corn Muffin mix. They were good, but I really haven't eaten them much since. I am not a big pancake fan, I don't like it when the butter and syrup soak in and make it really soggy. I do like French toast and have made that, but I won't put syrup on it. I don't like blueberries either so I won't make that, but banana sounded good.

-1 cup flour
-1 Tablespoon sugar
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 egg
-1 cup milk
-2 tablespoons melted butter
-1 ripe banana (mashed)
-1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
-1 teaspoon cinnamon (or to taste)
-a little fresh grated nutmeg


Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, butter and banana.
Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.

I like using the mashed banana better than slicing it. You can see it still has some chunks in it. I do remember that when you see the bubbles come up that's when you flip them.

That's a hot griddle!

These were so good as is I didn't need any syrup! I like how it crisps up around the edges!

They were even good after I wrapped them up and froze some for Wade. He had some later, I think he just threw it in the pan to warm up.


  1. This sounds really yummy. I cheat though as I have a pancake maker:) Diane

  2. Lovely mouthwatering pancakes. Yummy!

  3. Awesome job for a first time. I could wake up to that. I love me some pancakes.

    Killian's is def for marinating and drinking while versitile!

    Be Well

  4. Diane - I've never heard of a pancake maker.

    Cool - thanks

    Lazaro - thank you, they're not the prettiest pancakes, but they taste good!

  5. Seriously!? Man, pancakes are a must around here, LOL!! These sound delicious, I love me some nanner pancakes ;), I grew up in Grand Rapids, too!

  6. Your pancakes look delicious and they would definitely be a hit around here!

  7. wow! what a delicious pancake....I love it..

  8. I'm glad you found a pancake that works for you and me too because I do love bananas. However...never give me a pancake without an amazing quality maple syrup. Less calories on you and more onto my hips!
    I'm bookmarking this recipe...gotta try it;o)
    Thanks a ton :) and have a great weekend,

  9. Oh my those look wonderful - I may just have to make them for breakfast tomorrow morning! Thanks for stopping by to visit me - I hope that you are enjoying your summer - we are finally on break!!!

  10. oh wow this look amazing I am adding banana to my next ones lol

  11. My kids would flip if I didn't make pancakes at least once a week. Two of my kids love peanut butter on them instead of butter and syrup.

    Yours sound so flavorful with the spices and bananas. YUM!

  12. It's Sunday 7am right here and I think I want some of these too! I love any pancakes especially with butter & syrup. Well, actually it's best with maple syrup but can't find it here. So, sugar syrup is OK! Enjoy & have a great Sunday.
    Blessings, Kristy

  13. Wow! What a delicious pancake!

  14. Good work on your first attempt. Didn't she ask for pancakes before this? :)

  15. I never make pancakes either...always waffles...and I eat them without syrup....this would be a good recipe for me to try.

  16. Girlichef - hey I know, I should of done this long ago. That's great about GR! We know where we're coming from!

    Pam - Thank you!

    Rebecca - Hope you enjoy it!
    Kristen - Peanut butter huh? Sound interesting, at least it would go with bananas!
    Kristy - You should of told me sooner, I would of put some maple syrup in the package that went out...hehehe!

    Rachana - thanks

    3HT - thank you. No, she always gets a pancake when we go out for breakfast...that and hashbrowns...I do make her hashbrowns often :D

    Bo - I would make waffles if I had a waffle maker. Good to know I'm in good "no syrup" company! :D

  17. Lyndz honey, I have some awards for you. Please feel free to stop by. Thanks!

  18. i know, i liked pancakes for so long but have prepared them only may be a couple of times so far! banana pancakes are my favorite by far though. yours look delicious.

  19. These look delicious! It took me quite some time to figure out the art of flipping a pancake without getting batter everywhere...I'm very impressed with your first pancake adventure!

  20. Oh my, I'd like these vanilla banana delights for dinner and dessert (and breakfast, come morning)! Totally yummy recipe, I can't wait to try, many thanks for sharing this culinary treat, Lyndsey!

  21. You're a pro already! These look scrumptious with banana in them! Sometimes I eat them with a just a little bit of butter. So yummy.

  22. I am not a fan of bananas plain but I love them hidden in something like pancakes. These sound really good.

  23. Hi Lyndsey! How are you? You won the Yum-Yum Bento Box Book. So would you please to send your postal address so I can send the book to you. Thanks and Congrats!! :)

  24. Sounds like easy pancakes to make :)

  25. i seldom made pancake too, next time maybe I should try your recipe instead.

  26. reminds me of the song Banana pancakes by jack jhonson :)..
    looks so delicious..

  27. Looks great. I can't believe it's your first time making pancakes! I make them a couple times a month and love buckwheat the best. I don't put butter on mine and serve the syrup in a little custard cup and just dip the pancakes so it doesn't get soaked with it.


I would love to hear from you, please share your ideas, tips, stories or any questions or comments. Thanks for stopping by...
