Recipe: Banana Pancakes

On the morning of my birthday I was treated to a delicious pancake breakfast made by B. I whipped up the batter the night before so we didn’t have to think too much in the morning, and served them up with chopped bananas, strawberries and a little of the salted caramel sauce leftover from my birthday cupcakes! Oh, and a sneaky glass of champagne too!

Ingredients List

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 2 mashed bananas (the riper the better!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2tbs melted butter
  • 1tbs vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar (I used coconut sugar)
  • 1tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt

Birthday pancakes


  1. Combine the milk and vinegar in a bowl and leave for 10 minutes to curdle slightly (this makes homemade buttermilk)
  2. Add the mashed banana, eggs, butter and vanilla and whisk to combine
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  4. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet and mix until just combined. Leave aside for at least 10 minutes to allow the baking powder to activate
  5. Heat a frypan over medium heat and melt some butter on it (skip the butter if it’s non stick), pour some of the batter into the pan (roughly 1/3 cup works well) and cook until it starts to form little bubbles. Flip, and cook the other side until golden brown
  6. Repeat with the remainder of the batter then serve with your choice of toppings!
  7. Enjoy!


It was a pretty delicious way to kick off my birthday celebrations, that’s for sure! And if you hold the salted caramel sauce then they’re not overly unhealthy either, so they’d make a great Sunday morning treat!
