    Wow! I wanted something bready to make use of some bananas I had lying around. This recipe is delicious! It was my first time preparing from scratch buttermilk pancakes. This recipe incorporating banana was a perfect addition. I used Nutella instead of syrup to dress them. Definitely saving this one for future use.

    Really good. These were popular with everyone here. Made just as written -maybe a little more banana, except I added toasted chopped pecans. Next time I think I wont bother unless I toast the nuts more than I did. They seemed a bit soft and detracted from the pancakes. Thanks very much for this recipe.

    Very good, fluffy pancakes! Be sure to pay attention to the time to cook each side. These take a little longer than plain pancakes.

    Delicious! Made exactly as written. Didn't have orange zest on hand, so I didn't use it. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Really good flavor. I didn't have any orange zest, so I added 1/4 t of orange extract, but that wasn't enough to flavor it. I also added some chopped walnuts. Next time I might try increasing the baking powder, to see if it could make them even fluffier.

    The only change I made was to use oil instead of butter. And I omitted the orange zest cause I was lazy LOL The taste is so good. Thanks Kit. Made for Kittencal Cookathon.
