Banana Pancakes

Oh before I start, a friend of mine had an extra memory card that I could use.. 🙂 I’m so thrilled. There was a delay with the delivery, for the card that I ordered.. I’m still waiting for the new card to be delivered.. meanwhile.. I have one to use.. 😀

You may say another pancake recipe from a person who does not like sweet things..??!!??? Well yes, I seem to have fallen in love with Pancakes for the moment.. Plus there were some ripe banana’s which I did not want to waste. So there.. I added mashed banana’s to the pancake batter,…

Banana Pancakes...

I reading through how pancakes came into being from Wiki & I see the Greeks were the one who first made something similar to pancakes & had them for breakfast. There are varieties of pancakes, they differ with the region. In India the dosa is similar to a pancake but then its savoury not sweet.

Pancakes are served with a wide variety of toppings or fillings like jam,syrups, cream, fruits etc. I need to try my hands at making crepe’s sometime soon.. 🙂 May end up liking that as well.. 🙂

Sorry did not end up clicking more pics for this recipe.. hunger was driving me up the wall… 😦 I dunno if this applies here.. but I was pretty impatient.. they say food photographers need to start clicking pics only when they are fed well.. but this was breakfast.. the first meal of the day.. so excuses.. 😀

Ingredients: (Serves 2 – makes 8 pancakes)       Preparation Time: 15-20 mins
All purpose flour – 3/4 cup
Sugar – 2 tbsp
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Egg – 1, lightly beaten
Banana – 1, the riper the banana is the better
Milk – 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence – 1/2 tsp
Butter or oil for frying
Cooking oil – 1 tbsp
Salt – 1/8 tsp

In a mixing bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, mix the beaten egg, mashed banana, milk, cooking oil and vanilla essence. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture, and fold until blended.

Heat a fry pan/pancake pan. Set it to medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with some butter/oil, and pour the batter on the pan. Roughly about 1/3 cup measuring cup for each pancake. Cook pancakes until bubbles form on top Slowly lift the side to check if the pancake edges has begun to turn brown, if yes then flip the pancakes to cook through.

Tip: 1. Remember to add the batter only when the pan is hot, else it will take longer for the bubbles to form on the top & the underside will begin to burn.
2. Do not add too much butter on the pan before you add the batter because the underside will burn too quickly. I added butter from the sides once I added the batter.

Serving Suggestions:
Pour some golden syrup or any syrup of your choice.
