Banana Pancakes

Fantastic! I finally managed to prepare them ;) With an irreplaceable help of Nigella's 'Feast' Book :)
I do recommend them, they're outrageous!
I slightly changed the original recipe as I personally prefer them without a banana.

  • 150g of flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 30g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 250ml of buttermilk*
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar

Optional ingredients:
  • 1 banana

  • maple syrup (I honestly do recommend it)
  • honey
  • more bananas
  • shredded coconut
  • jam
  • etc ;)

* buttermilk makes pancakes springy, but I realize that it is fat, so you can easily add milk, 1,5-3,2% but then it is very important to add 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar


  1. Take a bowl in which you can mix ingredients (preferably a bowl suitable for using a mixer or blender).
  2. Melt the butter and put it aside to let it cool down.
  3. Optionally - Wash and peel the banana, chop, put in the bowl and mix till smooth.
  4. If you're using milk - put it in another bowl, add vinegar and leave for 5 minutes. After that time add all the ingredients (without butter, unless it is already cold) and mix, till smooth.
  5. If you're using a buttermilk - add all the ingredients except for melted butter in a bowl. Mix to receive smooth mixture.
  6. When the butter is cooled down, add it and whisk again, till smooth.
  7. Take a frying pan, put some oil on it and distribute the oil using a paper towel (yes, pancakes aren't supposed to swim in that oil ;) the frying pan just needs to be greased).
  8. Turn on the lowest heat. Wait a minute.
  9. Put some dough on the frying pan, fry for a minute or two, till the colour is gold (keep paying attention to your pancake, they fry really fast), overturn.
  10. Take it off from the frying pan, add your favourite additional ingredients. 
  11. Bon Appetit! ;)
