Carmelized Banana Pancakes Recipe

A simple banana pancake recipe that is loaded with delicious flavor.


2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
11/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted, or vegetable oil
Vegetable oil (for frying)
4 bananas (about), peeled, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
Warm maple syrup


Preheat oven to 250F.

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in large bowl to blend. Whisk buttermilk, eggs, and butter in medium bowl to blend.

Gradually whisk buttermilk mixture into flour mixture just until blended (do not overmix; some small lumps may remain).

Heat griddle or 2 large nonstick skillets over medium heat.

Brush griddle lightly with oil. Working in batches, pour batter by scant 1/4 cupfuls onto griddle.

Top each pancake with 4 banana slices. Cook until bottoms brown and bubbles form, about 2 minutes.

Turn pancakes over and cook until bottoms brown and banana slices caramelize, about 2 minutes.

Transfer pancakes to baking sheet and place in oven while cooking remaining pancakes.

Transfer pancakes to plates.

Serve with warm maple syrup.
