This recipe was terrific! I was looking for a banana pancake recipe that actually had bananas in it, not just on it! I halved the recipe which worked out well. Batter was a bit thick so I added a splash more milk. We had a buffet of toppings: cherries, bananas, nuts, coconut, butter and syrup! We'll be making again! Thanks for posting!

We thought the pancake flavor was very good but the texture was a bit heavy and gummy. The banana flavor was very distinct and we thought they were sweet enough. After the first pancake I added an egg to the batter which helped the texture a bit. Made for the Yuku Culinary Quest 2016.

This recipe is amazing!!!! It is super easy to mix up and the pancakes bake up so thick and fluffy! Mmmm, yummy! :)
The banana flavour in them is very nice, it makes the pancakes sweet and goes great with the honey (if youre watching sugar intake, Im sure you could leave out the honey using very ripe bananas).
I made my own self raising flour (adding 1/2 ts baking powder per 1/2 cup flour), but other than that stuck to your recipe and loved it! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for sharing a true keeper with us, Lavender Lynn!
