Down in South Carolina, I ordered these fantastic Banana Pecan Buttermilk Pancakes. This isn't with buttermilk, but it's very easy and very yummy.
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter (salted butter, melted)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 banana (sliced thin)
- 1⁄2 cup pecans (chopped, big chunks of pecans)
- Beat egg until it's fluffy.
- Stir in milk and butter.
- Stir in flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- Melt butter in frying pan at high heat.
- Pour batter into frying pan, reduce heat to medium.
- Wait about 20 seconds, then lay slices of banana on pancake. Then sprinkle pecans into them. (should cook in a minute of two).
- Flip it over to cook the other side (this side cooks faster).
- Repeat until batter is finished.
Very thick and fluffy pancakes. I used soy milk instead of the milk and applesauce instead of the egg, also brown sugar instead of white sugar. I forgot the butter/oil but they were still excellent without. I used chopped walnuts as I had this on hand, the only thing I would possibly change is to add some vanilla and cinnamon to the next batch and I may try buttermilk or soured milk (put a tbsp. of lemon juice in a measuring cup and fill with milk and let sit for about 10 minutes)in the next batch. Great recipe, thanks for sharing! Update: made these with 1/4 applesauce and walnuts, about 1/2-1 tsp vanilla and cinnamon, they rocked! This is how I will make them from now on.
Hubby & I BOTH loved this recipe!! I liked the idea of using banana slices, not mashed banana! I cut the recipe by a third & added a few tbsp of oats for texture/nutrition. I used skim milk but used low fat buttermilk for my hubby, who loves that--plus I only used 1/2 tsp baking powder (I cut the recipe into a third) & they were still nice & fluffy. Also added some cinnamon--yum! I used walnuts like another reviewer. I would advise laying the banana slices away from the edges of the pancakes; makes flipping easier--and to wait a good few minutes to let the insides cook b/c the bananas will get nice & browned up. If you try to remove the pancakes too soon the bananas will still be kinda mushy & will make things a little messy :-). The directions were great, tho--and really helpful. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!
What fantastic pancakes!!! I didnt add the nuts or butter but oh my goodness, they turned out so fluffy and delicious!! My 4 year old ate 2 1/2 pancakes by herself!!
