Ripe Banana Pancakes

  • 1 or 2 old, ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

This recipe is a super way to use up aging bananas. Begin by mashing the banana in a large bowl. Whisk in the egg and milk. Beat the mixture until the banana is as smooth as you can reasonably get it. Measure in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk again until the batter is smooth. Drop by 1/4-cupfuls onto an oiled skillet or griddle. Cook until brown underneath and dry on top with tiny bubbles. Flip to brown the second side. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve hot with Pancake Syrup or applesauce. Very good. Makes 4 servings.

What a great recipe! I was looking for other ways to use up overly ripe bananas!

I never would thought to use applesauce instead of syrup. My kids usually get plain (butter-only) pancakes because I don’t feel like dealing with the mess syrup usually makes. Now I have an alternative! Thanks!

My boyfriend likes peanut butter on pancakes, which I think it a bit odd,and still kinda messy, but it’s at least a little more nutritious than syrup.
