These are SO simple, yet delicious! I have to make this everytime my little cousins stay the night. Borrowed my favorite tried-and-true basic pancake recipe and added some tasty zip!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients.
  2. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk.
  3. Start with 1 1/4 cups milk, adding up to another 1/4 cup if necessary, as you mix it with the flour.
  4. Add the two eggs, vanilla if using and oil, whisking until mixed but still a bit lumpy.
  5. Peel bananas, placing in a seperate bowl. (You may want to reserve half a banana for the syrup, see below). Mash with fork, then stir into pancake mix.
  6. Add chopped pecans.
  7. Heat a frying pan (if it is not non-stick, you will need to melt a bit of butter or oil in it) and when hot, pour desired amount of pancake mix.
  8. When the pancake starts to bubble on top and is golden brown on the cooked side, turn it and continue cooking until both sides are golden brown.
  9. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter. You may need to adjust the heat as pan tends to get hotter as you keep making pancakes.
  10. Keep the cooked pancakes covered with a tea towel, to keep them warm while you finish cooking the rest.
  11. To add even more flavor, I use store bought bottled syrup, place 1 cup in small saucepan, add 1/2 reserved banana, in slices, and heat until just warm. The banana adds SO much flavor! I dip the syrup over the pancakes without the banana chunks, but you can do either way.

These were very tasty and the recipe made a lot. I usually have to double pancake recipes for our family of 7. I doubled this one and I have enough for another breakfast and maybe 2. I did use the most amount of liquid recommended (the 1 1/2 c) and maybe that is why it made so many. Either way, I am just glad that I have a day where I do not have to cook breakfast! ; )

Easy and delicious! Too bad they're so many calories :-(
I didn't have vanilla so exchanged walnut flavor (1/2 of original amount). Very good!

I loved the suggestion to warm the syrup with bananas . . . I reduced the cinnamon and added a little nutmeg. Very nice. Thank you!
