banana pancakes

pancakes. banana pancakes. so light. so fluffy. so good.
we ran out of bread the other day and so for lunch I made these for the boys. this has quickly become our favourite pancake recipe since being in Uganda. I didn't have any lemons to add the lemon juice and they were still delicious although I definitely prefer them with the lemon juice. so if you  have it, use it.
also? a secret confession of my favourite pancake topping? peanut butter and brown sugar. so sugary. so delicious. I don't know if it was my Dad who introduced me to this fantastic combination, but let's just say it was. because he also introduced me to ketchup with french toast. does anyone else do this? or is that weird?
make 'em. eat 'em. love 'em.

also this recipe is incredibly versatile. you can replace the bananas with 1 cup of grated apple and a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon for apple spice pancakes.
or instead of bananas, lemon and 2 tbsp of sugar you add 1/2 cup grated cheese and 1/2 cup crumbled bacon {mmm, bacon} for a more savoury pancake.
or any other combination you can think of! the options are endless!

banana pancakes

2 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

combine separately and then add:
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup oil
1 cup of mashed banana
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice

stir quickly until blended. {don't beat, though. a lumpy consistency is good for pancakes.} cook on a hot, greased griddle, turning when bubbly.

you can always keep any extra that don't get eaten and reheat them in the toaster for a fresh-from-the-griddle experience.


  1. mmmm.. delish!! and YES MA'AM, I eat ketchup with my french toast!! That's the only way I know how to eat it... we don't add cinnamon, so it's essentially egg and bread with ketchup. Finally someone else who eats it this way!! ;)

  2. Ah Bekki, I'm so glad I'm not the only one. :)


I love hearing from you!
