I want banana pancakes but I have no buttermilk. What to do? Time to Frankenstein recipes together!
The banana flavor is subtle when eaten plain but is enhanced when maple syrup is added. (Weird I know. )
However, if you need your banana flavor at 11...then I would suggest replacing the vanilla with banana extract.
- 1-1/3 cups sifted flour
- 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup mashed banana (about 2 ripe bananas)
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
Whisk the first 3 [dry] ingredients together in a large bowl.
Then mix in the remaining ingredients.
Heat griddle -- 325º on my electric griddle but this may differ based on location*. It doesn't need to be greased if it's non-stick.
Pour about a 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle.
When the pancake becomes full of bubbles and the edges look slightly dry [a couple of minutes], flip the pancakes. It should take less time to finish cooking the other side of the pancake.
*I live just above 3500ft so the altitude may affect cooking temperatures and times.
**Depending on the size of your griddle.
