There are few things more appealing and comforting than a good breakfast! Especially when it consists of a stack of fluffy, chewy, delicious pancakes. And after tinkering with the recipe for some time, I think I’ve finally found the proper balance of basic ingredients.
And so here they are, my recipe for Comfort Banana Pancakes! Naturally, bananas are a good addition to any breakfast food. But when they are softened and added directly into the ingredients, in the form of banana bread, muffins, or this particular recipe, the result is a food that has consistency, is nutritious, and where the addition of the bananas natural starches provide an extra layer of flavor that seems at once dense but light. And of course, they are versatile, going well with all kinds of condiments!
250 ml flour
1 banana (frozen and then thawed)
175 ml milk
30 ml melted butter
10 ml baking powder
7 ml sugar
5 ml all spice
2 ml salt
Combine all ingredients into a bowl and whisk until consistent and smooth. Heat frying pan and grease with vegetable oil or cooking spray. Spoon a good-sized helping into pan and flip as needed. And when it’s time to serve, they can be enjoyed any number of ways. My favorite toppings include butter and maple syrup, Yoghurt and maple syrup, and Nutella and yoghurt. Feel free to sub your own repertoire of toppings, you really can’t miss!
Until next time, stay warm and well fed my friends!
