Banana Pancakes

Hello reader!

Thanks for dropping by. It’s a beautiful day here… how about a nice and simple recipe?

I love to make easy breakfasts on weekends. Not that I’m lazy, but I like spending more time with my husband; going out and doing all the weekend fun… you know, things like that! So, I planned on making something really quick for breakfast, because I didn’t want to miss the Philippine festival in Victoria market that Saturday.

Now, we all have this laid-back attitude on weekends, especially mornings (isn’t it?)… so who’d like to even wake up early? The festival was starting at 11 am and we woke up at 9:45 am! I needed a quick idea, so that we would make it to the festival on time.

I had few things running in my head, but it finally stopped on Banana pancakes. It had been a long time since we ate it last, so, this was it! I rushed to the kitchen, opened the fridge, took out bananas and other supplies, and we were hogging on the pancakes after 30 minutes. It’s that simple, I promise.

Without letting you read more about my story, here is the recipe to these scrumptious pancakes that you’d love to make every weekend for your family.

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  1. Bananas ……………………………… 2
  2. All purpose flour …… 1 and 1/2 cups
  3. Eggs ……………………………………… 2
  4. Milk ……………………………………… 1/2 cup
  5. Sugar …………………………………… 3 tablespoon
  6. Salt ……………………………………… 1 teaspoon
  7. Vanilla essence ………… 1/2 teaspoon (optional)
  8. Olive oil ………………………… for cooking
  9. Strawberries ………………… 4 to 5 (sliced)
  10. 10. Honey ………………………………… 2 tablespoon
  11. 11. Butter ……………………………… 1 to 2 blobs (optional)

Method:

  • Peel the bananas, cut them into halves and put them in a blender
  • Add eggs, milk, sugar, salt and vanilla essence to it 
  • Blend this nicely for a minute, and then start adding in flour slowly
  • The consistency of the batter should be like that of a cake batter – smooth and silky
  • Oil the pan and heat it. Once hot, turn the flame to medium and pour a big spoonful of the batter in the middle of the pain. Let it spread on it’s own
  • Cook it till you see bubbles on top of the pan cake, flip it upside down. Let this cook for a minute
  • Once your stack is done, you can serve it with honey, butter and strawberries

I made about seven pancakes out of the batter and it took me less than half an hour for the whole process (preparation plus cooking). Also, I’d like to add that I didn’t use baking powder for this recipe and it still worked great!

If you did something different with the recipe, please share with us in the comment section, so that we can try it as well. 

Hope you like it.

Bon Appetite!
