Two banana pancake recipes
Recently, one of my sisters sent me a recipe for a banana pancake. It looked simple enough to make and so I decided to try it. However, as I read through the comments about the recipe, in which one person called it a “banana omelet” instead of a “banana pancake,” I came across an alternative recipe to try for a banana pancake. Since we had extra bananas, I decided to give both recipes a whirl!
The first recipe is the one my sister sent to me. Here is what’s needed for Recipe 1:
1 banana 2 eggs Cinnamon (as much as desired)
Mash up the banana in a bowl, add the eggs and stir to mix well. Add cinnamon and stir again.
I poured it out on the griddle and cooked them like pancakes.
Here is what’s needed for Recipe 2:
1 banana 1 egg 1 Tbsp. Flour Cinnamon (as much as desired)
Instructions for this one are the same as for the above recipe. I just mixed them all together one at a time.
I also cooked this one like pancakes on the griddle.
Here they are, ready for tasting:
The result? Recipe 1 was the winner. Both my son and I tasted each recipe. We tried them first plain then with syrup then with Nutella. Even with Nutella, the second recipe was gross. Yuck! The first one was definitely the best. We both gave it a 5. Even my husband liked the first one best. Yay!
Here’s the winner:
I also enjoyed the first recipe plain. It was sweet enough to enjoy without any toppings or anything. The best part is, it kept me full. It was several hours later in the day before I was hungry again, and I only ate 2! I guess it’s another bonus that the first recipe makes more pancakes (8 compared the Recipe 2’s 6).
I am glad we have this new recipe and I’ll be making them again. Yay! (And thanks to my sister Millie for the recipe!)
