2 Ingredient Banana Pancake


Recipe by The Kitchn

Makes 8 Pancakes 

INGREDIENTS

1 ripe banana

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Butter or oil, for cooking (optional)

Maple syrup, jam, powdered sugar, or any other toppings, for serving

 

Optional mix-ins (choose a few!):

1/8 teaspoon baking powder, for fluffier pancakes

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 cup chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or a mix


INSTRUCTIONS

Mash the banana. Peel the banana and break it up into several big chunks in a medium bowl. Use a dinner fork to thoroughly mash the banana. Continue mashing until the banana has a pudding-like consistency and no large lumps remain; a few small lumps are okay. You should have 1/3 to 1/2 cup of mashed bananas.

Add flavorings if desired. These pancakes are pretty great on their own, but a few extras never hurt. Add 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder for fluffier, lighter pancakes, and whisk in salt, vanilla, cocoa powder, or honey to flavor the pancakes. Save any chunky, heavy ingredients — like nuts or chocolate chips — for when the pancakes are on the griddle.

Stir in the eggs. Pour the eggs over the banana and stir until completely combined. The batter will be very loose and liquidy, more like whisked eggs than regular pancake batter.

Heat a pan over medium heat. Heat a cast iron pan, nonstick frying pan, or griddle over medium heat. Melt a little butter or warm a little vegetable oil in the pan if desired.

Drop the batter on hot griddle. Drop about 2 tablespoons of batter into the pan. It should sizzle immediately — if not, turn up the heat slightly. Repeat with dropping more batter into the pan, leaving at least an inch or two between pancakes.

Cook for about 1 minute. Cook the pancakes until the bottoms look browned and golden when you lift a corner, about 1 minute. The edges should also be starting to look set, but the center will still be loose, like barely set Jell-O.

Sprinkle with toppings. Sprinkle any loose toppings, like nuts or chocolate chips, over the top of the pancakes as the first side cooks.

Flip the pancakes. I've found it best to do this very gently and fairly slowly — the opposite of regular pancakes. Gently work a thin, flat spatula about halfway under the pancake, then lift until the unsupported half of the pancake is just barely lifted off the skillet. Flip the pancake. Some of the loose batter will probably spill onto the skillet as you do this; just be sure to lay the pancake on top of the spill and nudge any excess back under the pancake.

Cook for another minute or so. Cook until the other side is also golden-brown, about 1 minute more. You can flip the pancakes a few times if you need to in order to get them evenly browned. (Flipping is much easier once the second side is set!)

Continue cooking the pancakes. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a serving plate and cook the rest of the batter. Keep the finished pancakes warm in the oven if cooking more than a single batch.

Serve warm. These pancakes are best when eaten fresh off the griddle and still warm. Serve with maple syrup, honey, jam, or any extra toppings you'd like.

 

 

RECIPE NOTES

Leftover pancakes: These banana pancakes will keep in the refrigerator for a few days and can be warmed in the microwave in 30-second bursts until hot. They're not as delicious as when they're fresh, but they make a nice snack.

Larger crêpe-like pancakes: Blend the bananas and eggs in a blender until perfectly smooth. Make slightly larger pancakes and use a very thin spatula to flip.
