Banana Pancakes

  • Servings: Around 20 pancakes

This recipe has been sent to me by my daughter-in-law, Fatima, who loves pastry making and baking.

I tried it. It is very good, great for breakfast but also with afternoon tea.

Serve them with a fruit compote, a drizzle of maple syrup, honey or with sliced bananas and a dusting of caster sugar.


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g of flour
  • 2 tbsp of sugar (optional)
  • 1 heaped tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 30g of melted unsalted butter
  • About 1 cup of milk (or 240ml)
  • 1 pinch of salt


Step 1

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, vanilla and sugar until well blended.

Step 2

Mash the bananas with a fork then add it to the eggs mixture together with the milk and the melted butter.

Step 3

Finally add the flour, the baking powder and the salt into the mixture. Fold the batter gently with a spatula until well combined. It will be thick and lumpy.

Step 4

Put a non-stick pan over medium heat. Grease it with some butter and vegetable oil. Then scoop the batter onto the pan, using 3 or 4 tablespoons for each pancake. Let them cook until all the undersides are golden brown.

Step 5

Serve hot with the topping of your choice.
