Pancakes never grow old. It always warms your belly for breakfast. Good pancakes, however, can warm your belly anytime of the day. I’m glad to say these are one of the best ones I’ve had. So give it a go and let these pancakes receive some praise!
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
- 1.5 tablespoons sugar
- 1/3 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1.5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 bananas (one mushed up)
- Vegetable oil, for cooking
- In a large bowl, combine and mix dry ingredients using a whisk.
- Form a well/hole in the middle of the bowl and add in egg, milk, melted butter and vanilla extract. Whisk until well incorporated. Be careful not to over-mix – you wouldn’t want tough pancakes!
- Gently fold in mashed banana (again, being careful not to over-mix).
- Brush melted butter on a pan under medium-high heat. Scoop 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto pan and let it spread until it stops.
- Cook for 2 mins until bubbles appear on the surface and edges start to brown.
- Turn heat down to low-medium heat. Flip pancake and cook for another 1-2 minutes until surface is golden brown and center is cooked. (You can test it by gently pressing on the pancake to see if it gives a nice soft and bouncy texture.)
- Transfer pancakes to a clean plate. Top with sliced bananas, butter and serve hot with your favorite maple syrup!
