Banana buttermilk pancakes


I've been doing some serious research lately. Pancake research. And I've come to the conclusion that once you go buttermilk you don't go back. There's something about tangy buttermilk that takes an ordinary pancake and turns it into a fluffy stack of heaven. These buttermilk banana pancakes made a fun and yummy lunch on a rainy Saturday.


Here's how I made them:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp granulated white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 banana, mashed
1 tbsp butter for the pan

In a medium mixing bowl, I whisked together the first five ingredients. Then I cracked the egg into the dry ingredients, added the buttermilk, and stirred it with the whisk until most of the lumps were gone. The mashed banana was stirred in last.

I melted the butter in a preheated frying pan (I find just below medium heat is the sweet spot for pancakes). The pancake batter was poured into the frying pan, about 1/2 a cup at a time, and allowed to cook until bubbles were evenly appearing on the surface, then I flipped and cooked the other side until golden brown.


My 3-year-old loves his pancakes. We ate 'em with maple syrup and I dressed mine up with walnuts. Oooh ya!

Is buttermilk in your fridge? What do you like to make with it? What's been going into your pancakes lately?

  3. Fantastic!!! Didn't get a chance to make them before now because hubby is the pancake expert (and hogs the job accordingly). He's out of town so I got to make these for the girls and I. No leftovers, you know they were a hit!

  5. Yum! I normally hate pancakes of all kinds but I made this recipe (I used coconut milk instead of the buttermilk as I don't normally eat dairy) and they turned out fabulous. Next time I'm going to also add lemon zest and blueberries. I may also try replacing the flour with coconut flour for a gluten free treat. Thanks for giving me a great base to work with!

    1. Oh and I also cooked them in toasted sesame oil instead of butter. It was perfect. I ate them with a bit of honey on top.

    2. Tried doing these with coconut flour - a definite no on that one. It does need the wheat flour to work properly for this recipe. I ended up adding way more coconut milk, another banana and 5 eggs total until it started staying together like a pancake should. It tastes good, it just doesn't look good. Thought I'd give it a shot anyway - lesson learned.

    1. Sure, you can make this recipe without banana. You could either leave it out or substitute an equal amount (about 1/2 a cup) of applesauce if you wish. Enjoy your pancakes!

    1. All the wet goes into the dry in this recipe without mixing separately first. It's faster and saves on clean-up, plus it just works :)
