Directions

  1. 1. Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.
  2. 2. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.
  3. 3. 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.
  4. My Note: Just a tip for fuss free banana mashing -- stick them in a zip-lock bag, zip and squeeze! When you're done cut a corner off and you have a pour spout! I do the same for marinades and everything else of the sort! So much cleaner! And less dishes to boot!
  5. Some advice and added 1/2t. of vanilla extract. I also used 2T of applesauce instead of the vegetable oil to make it a little healthier. Delicious!
  6. I have found that by measuring the dry ingredients and then putting them through a shifter makes for fluffy pancakes. I also substitute melted butter for the oil, I mix the liquid ingredients including the egg and then add the liquid mixture to the dry and stir to mixed, add two whole banannas and using a potato masher, mush them well. I use 1/4 cup measure per pancake. For thinner add a bit more milk.
  7. For me. but 1 thing to note is really to cook this on a LOW temperature so that the insides of the pancakes gets cooked. it's also less mushy and easier to turn. i learnt this the hard way. the first time i did this i turned the stove on HIGH and the bottom browned really fast. i was struggling to turn it over but the whole thing basically fell apart cos it was still very soft and mushy inside. the bottom ended up black and i had to throw it out and start from a lower temperature other than that.
  8. And for the peanut butter lover I added to a sauce pan 1 cup of each water, sugar & peanut butter best with smooth peanut butter. And brought this to a boil and cooled I used this as the syrup for the pancakes. So I saved a few calories on the pancakes but added a few on the peanut butter syrup. It was well worth it.
