I found this recipe in a magazine for fun things to do in the kitchen with your children (a Martha Stewart publication). A definite pleaser for banana lovers because it's got whole slices of banana right in the center! Make your own sauce to go over these and you'll be in breakfast heaven!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees. This is so that when you finish making the pancakes, they will stay nice and warm without having to microwave.
  2. Whisk sugar, baking powder, salt, and flour in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, milk, and 2 tbsp butter. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients.
  4. Whisk wet and dry ingredients togehter until the batter is just slightly lumpy.
  5. Heat pan over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray or use butter to coat the pan.
  6. Slice bananas into rounds and place onto the pan, then pour 1 tbsp of the pancake batter over the banana slice.
  7. Cook for 1-2 minutes (until there are big bubbles all over the surface of the pancake), then flip and cook another minute or so (until done).
  8. Put the pancakes onto a baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm.
  9. Serve with the sauce (cooked in the same pan as the pancakes after the pancakes are done. You should get a hint of banana flavor in your sauce if you cook it immediately aftetrward). You can also serve with just powdered sugar.
