Wow! I wanted something bready to make use of some bananas I had lying around. This recipe is delicious! It was my first time preparing from scratch buttermilk pancakes. This recipe incorporating banana was a perfect addition. I used Nutella instead of syrup to dress them. Definitely saving this one for future use.

Really good. These were popular with everyone here. Made just as written -maybe a little more banana, except I added toasted chopped pecans. Next time I think I wont bother unless I toast the nuts more than I did. They seemed a bit soft and detracted from the pancakes. Thanks very much for this recipe.

Very good, fluffy pancakes! Be sure to pay attention to the time to cook each side. These take a little longer than plain pancakes.
