I have been super swamped with work and studies and being on the road for work has cut into chunks of my weekend. I wanted a relaxing, easy, laid back weekend and few recipes are as easy and laid back like good ole pancakes - but since its me and I cannot leave well enough alone - I had to add in a little twist to up the amp - that's where the bananas come in. Instead of mashing it up, I cut it into tiny chunks and gently folded it into the batter (think pancake infused with banana - too much ?),
All you need to know about this recipe, it is no fuss, it is simple and quick.
What you need
- 1 cup flour
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 egg
- 1 cup butter milk
- 2 teaspoon sugar
- butter, for pan
In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. In a separate bowl, beat egg and buttermilk. Add wet ingredients to flour mixture, stirring lightly. It is okay if you have small lumps in the mixture, it makes the pancakes fluffier.
Finely dice the banana and gently fold it into the batter. Stir in a tablespoon of honey. Let the batter rest for about 7 to 10 minutes.
Heat up skillet over medium-low heat. Brush the pan with butter; use a 1/3 measuring cup to scoop and drop batter into the pan. Cook until you start to see tiny bubbles on the top. Flip the pancake over and cook for about a minute.
Serve and drizzle a generous amount of honey over it.
Tip: Hold pancakes in oven safe dish and place in the oven set at 200 degrees. This will keep it warm till it is ready to serve.
