Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

One of the good things about the weekend is that you have more time to make a good breakfast. It had been a while since I last had pancakes and I was craving them. I had some over overripe bananas in the freezer and I though they would go nicely in the pancakes. I also had some buttermilk in the fridge so it became banana buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup. They turned out pretty good. They were nice and moist and fluffy. I enjoyed the banana flavour of the pancakes. I garnished the pancakes with slices of bananas and some pecans. They were a great way to start off a day on the weekend.


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
  • 2 overripe bananas (mashed)


  1. Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Mix the buttermilk, egg, butter and bananas in another bowl.
  3. Mix the wet and dry ingredients making sure to not over mix.
  4. Heat a pan and melt a touch of butter in it.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture into the pan and heat until the surface starts to bubble and the bottom is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Flip the pancake and cook the other side until the bottom is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.
