Banana Pancakes

Now that I’m on a roll with food blogging, every morning I wake up and say what am I going to make today.

Today is Banana Pancakes! Breakfast of Champions!

I’ve never actually made pancakes from scratch before, I’m the just add water kinda girl. Not this time!


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas, mashed

Optional but Highly Recommended

1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg


Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.

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 added the optional ingredients to add a little more flavor. They compliment the banana flavor very well. I would avoid serving it with syrup, I feel that takes away from the banana. Try using whip cream.

What I’m starting to learn is that you don’t always need to follow a recipe exactly. Take risks and go with it and hope it turns out well. If not, try again. It’s all about trial and error.
