Calories 249kcal


  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • vanilla essence few drops
  • 3 tablespoons melted or softened butter plus more for greasing the pan and cooking
  • 2 tablespoons sugar adjust according to your preference


To make the batter for banana pancakes

  • In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  • In another bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until well combined.
  • Add the eggs to the butter sugar mixture and beat well.
  • Add the vanilla essence and milk to the butter sugar mixture and mix everything well.
  • In another small bowl, mash the bananas very well, small chunks of bananas are perfectly fine.
  • Add the mashed bananas to the butter sugar mixture with eggs and milk, and mix everything well until the ingredients are well combined.
  • Transfer the butter mixture to the dry flour mixture and stir well without any lumps to form the batter. The batter will be quite thick, but will have the consistency enough to pour to the pan using a spoon to make pancakes.

To make the banana pancakes

  • Heat a greased (preferably with butter) iron skillet or non stick pan and add little more butter, spread the butter using a good quality spatula.
  • Drop 2 tablespoons of batter to the heated pan (keep in medium heat and adjust the heat as needed to avoid the pancakes getting burnt too soon) and gently spread a little using the spoon if needed.
  • Add a little more butter to the top of the batter while its getting cooked.
  • Once the bottom side of the pancake is cooked, which may take about a couple of minutes in medium heat, flip the pancake and cook the other side too for about a minute or until the pancake is completely cooked.  Transfer the pancake from the pan to the serving plate. As you make more pancakes, the pan will become really hot so reduce the heat after making a couple of pancakes to avoid the pancakes burning.
  • Similarly cook all the pancakes until the batter is over by adjusting the heat as needed.
  • Serve the tasty and easy banana pancakes with maple syrup and butter for a very delicious breakfast or snack!
