The pancakes are easy to make. I wouuld suggest to let stand the dough for 10 minutes before you bake the pancakes. This will give the flour time to swell. I made small pancakes. The vanilla banana topping was great. Because I didn't have enough vanilla essence, I cut down the amount to about 3 tablespoons and it was great that way. I asembled the five pancakes with a layer of bananas in between. For serving I dusted the stacks with caster sugar and served more bananas on side in a little bowl, so that everyone could add more. For a 2nd serving I served the pancakes on a plate on the side. The dessert is great. The sweetness of the banana goes well together with the fluffy texture of the pancakes. Thanks for sharing a wonderful dessert.
This recipe is beyond anything I can describe reasonably in a coherent way. For the first problem~Dennis and I ate the bananas/vanilla essence sauce, all of it. Before we made the pancakes. Uh...that was problematic because there were no bananas left. Ran up to our local convenience store~"Highs Dairy Store" and bought more bananas. Came back and tried again with pancakes. I made these two ways. one vegan with vanilla soy milk and Enger-G egg replacer, and soy margarine. The other I did with egg, milk, and butter. Make sure you make up a couple of pancakes prior to making the banana sauce, as you will have to run out and get more, I guarantee this. We just put the bananas in the oven and ate from there. Thank you so very much my friend, Chef floWer.
We loved these simple pancakes that are lots less calories/ and lower fat than our usual. I did use 1 whole egg (and no water as suggested) and a bit more flour. For the topping I used 2 bananas and 1 apple and 4 teaspoons vanilla (as suggested by another reviewer) and no ice cream as we had these for breakfast. Thanks for sharin this keeper which we will be having often.
I just tried the topping with my usual pancake recipe: it was nice, but there was WAY too much vanilla. I have my suspicions that it should actually be 4 TEASPOONS, not tablespoons. Also, there's an ounce of butter in the ingredients list, but no mention of it in the instructions, so I just left it out without any apparent detriment! But maybe one could try dotting it over the bananas before grilling them...
This was yummy! everyone loved it and my kids even thought the vanilla banana juices were just right and didn't add maple syrup. I did use liquid egg substitute (1/4 cup). And for the topping - I cooked it under the broiler until browned, uncovered. 30 g of butter is about 3 tablespoons for USA cooks. Thanks for a yummy recipe!
