These are like a cross between banana bread and pancakes. They are on the heavy side and very filling. Recipe courtesy the Shooting Star Bed & Breakfast

I love banana pancakes, but my hubby- who usually makes the pancakes complains that adding the banana makes them harder to cook through, and more easy to burn. I had NO trouble at all with these not cooking through, nor with them burning. THey turned out very yummy- moist and tender, but cooked and lots of flavor. Didn't make the topping- my kids think pancakes are a finger food. Next time I will add some frozen blueberries!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. For the pancakes: in a large bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg and ginger.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine egg yolks, butter, milk, and vanilla; add to flour mixture and mix briefly (batter will be lumpy). Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; gently fold into batter. Gently fold in bananas and walnuts (reserve 1 tablespoon of walnuts for garnish).
  3. Cook pancakes until golden brown on both sides.
  4. Top with caramelized bananas and reserved walnuts. Serve with warm applesauce.
  5. For the Bananas: Melt butter in a non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Add brown and white sugar and nutmeg; cook until sugars dissolve. Add bananas; cook until mixture thickens and bananas start to brown. (Optional: add 2 tablespoons of Kahlua and cook for 3-5 minutes longer, until thickened.).
