Martha Stewart’s Banana Pancakes


Recently it seems I am finding lots of pancake recipes and all of them are making it onto my “must make or die” list.

This is another banana pancake, but is a plain pancake with a slice of banana in the batter as it is cooked unlike the banana pancake with mashed banana in the batter I made previously,

The slice of banana looks so pretty in the middle of the pancake as well.

Pretty as a picture.

The pile of pancakes with the banana on top looks just as good as it tastes, too.

It is a Martha Stewart recipe so I knew it would be good.  I didn’t realise just how good…

The pancakes are really light and fluffy.  The slice of banana adds a great touch without being too much.  And the sauted bananas on the side… well what needs to be said?

Martha Stewart’s Banana Pancakes

• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 2 tablespoons sugar
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 large egg lightly beaten
• 1 cup milk
• 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted, plus more for sauteing banana slices
• 2 bananas peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds

Preheat oven to 175 degrees. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add egg, milk, and butter; whisk until combined but still slightly lumpy.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place 5 banana rounds in pan, about 3 inches apart. Spoon one tablespoon batter over each; cook until large bubbles cover surface, 1 to 2 minutes.

Almost ready to flip

Flip, and cook until bottom is golden, about 1 minute more. Transfer to a baking sheet, and keep warm in the oven.

Repeat with remaining banana rounds and batter. Saute extra banana slices in butter until golden; serve with pancakes.

Good enough to eat...
