Fluffy Banana Pancakes that are insanely tender and taste great! They are a favorite in my household. Serve with even more sliced bananas and a drizzle of maple syrup for a satisfying breakfast, brunch or breakfast for dinner.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon grated/ground nutmeg optional
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
  1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg (if using).

  2. Add in the buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, mashed banana and vanilla extract (if using). Whisk until all the ingredients are just combined. It is okay if the batter is lumpy.

    Let the batter rest for 5 minutes before proceeding with making the pancakes.

  3. Set a griddle or skillet on medium heat. Add a dab of butter (about 1 teaspoon) to the griddle and let it melt then you brush it all over the griddle or skillet.

    Add the batter in ¼ cupfuls onto the griddle, leaving at least 2 inches between the pancakes. Cook for 2-3 minutes until bubbles form on top of the pancakes then flip them to the other side and let them cook for another 1-2 minutes. Use a spatula to transfer the pancakes unto a serving plate.

  4. Repeat the process with the rest of the batter. No need to butter the griddle or skillet before making subsequent batches.

  5. Served the pancakes with some fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup. I served them with some bananas and strawberries and real maple syrup.
