What do you do when you have over-ripened bananas? We make pancakes!! These yummy pancakes are much quicker to make than banana bread, which can sometimes take a whole hour in the oven. Pancakes on the other hand can be whipped up in minutes!
I made these for breakfast and had to fight my entire family to get a few good pictures and shoot some B-roll – The life of a food blogger mom I tell ya!
These pancakes are delicious, yes, but the caramelised bananas they’re topped with are the cherry on top!
Peanut Butter & Banana Pancakes
195g cake flour, sifted
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup mashed bananas
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cup peanut butter
28 g melted butter
1 tablespoon butter
2 Medium-sized bananas
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
pinch of salt
Sift the cake flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together and set aside.
Add the mashed bananas to a large bowl, whisk in the eggs, milk, vanilla, and peanut butter until combined.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until combined.
Lastly, add the melted butter and mix again.
Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the heated pan.
Allow pancakes cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until little bubbles begin to form in the batter. Then, flip.
For the caramelised bananas, add the butter into a heated pan, add in sliced bananas, honey, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Allow to cook till caramelised (5-6 minutes).
Serve pancakes with syrup and caramlised bananas.
