Food Crave!

I have recently become rather obsessed with Pintrest, and it has given me lots of inspiration in the Kitchen! I'm a sucker for anything banana related and when I saw a recipe for American style banana pancakes I HAD to give them a try.

This was my first attempt at making any American style pancake, I often make regular pancakes which are alot thinner but never tried the thick style of pancakes. The recipe I used was actually really easy and they tasted absolutely fabulous! So if you fancy this banana pancake give this recipe a try.

Makes 12 pancakes


Two cups of all purpose flour
Two teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup of brown sugar
One teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup of milk
One tablespoon vanilla extract
Three large ripe bananas, mashed
Two tablespoons butter, melted 


In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix in the milk and add the vanilla extract to the dry ingredients, stirring to combine. Then add in the mashed banana to the mix. Once these are combined then add the melted butter until the batter is smooth.

Heat a frying pan with a little oil and add some of the mixture to the pan, cook until bubbles form on top and then flip and cook for about a minute or two more. Serve hot with maple syrup or ice cream... YUMMY!
