Fluffy Banana Pancakes!

18 Mar

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Serves 2 (double the ingredients for family-size breakfast)


  • 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp of vinegar (white or balsamic vinegar)
  • 2 tbsp of granulated white sugar
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp of butter


The Sour 2

1. Mix the milk, lemon juice, and vinegar in a medium-sized bowl – set it aside to “sour”

2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt

3. In a small bowl, mash your ripe banana

4. Combine the mashed banana into the dry ingredients, followed by the sour mixture

The batter 3

5. Mix batter lightly using folding motions with a silicon spatula to prevent over-mixing (It’s okay to be lumpy)

6. Melt the butter in a skillet on medium-low heat

7. Spoon the batter into the skillet – let it cook for 2-3 minutes, allowing a few bubbles to form and pop – then flip it!

8. Allow it to cook for an additional 2 minutes on the other side – take a peek and see if it’s golden brown, if it is –  it’s done!

The Final product 6


  • The acid from the lemon juice and vinegar will react with the baking soda to create gas bubbles – this will make the pancakes super fluffy! – If you’re worried about the pancakes being sour, don’t worry you can’t taste it at all!
  • I like to eat my banana pancakes with marshmallow fluff most of the time, instead of maple syrup. You can try other toppings like peanut butter, grape/strawberry jelly, or even the berry compote I made for the french toast from my last post!

Enjoy! :]
