I have had a long, stressful, work week and I cannot wait to lounge around in sweatpants all weekend and relax! Even us fashionistas need a break once in a while!
I could not think of a better way to start the weekend, or finish the work week, than with a delicious, savory brunch recipe that will put the “comfort” in comfort food. One of my absolute favorite treats is banana bread, so I thought that these Banana Bread Pancakes would be to die for!
I cannot wait to wake up late on Sunday, lounge in my pajamas and start cooking this amazing brunch recipe. When I think of banana bread I think of my Mom’s kitchen and the smells that used to make me feel right at home.
By the way, this is also a great recipe to make your Mom for Mother’s Day this weekend! I bet she would LOVE breakfast in bed! These pancakes would go great with berries, oatmeal, or yogurt and anything else you might happen to whip up.
O 2 cups all purpose flour
O 2 teaspoons baking powder
O 1/4 teaspoon salt
O 1/4 cup brown sugar
O 1 teaspoon cinnamon
O 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
O 2/3 cup milk
O 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
O 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
O 2 tablespoons butter, melted
O In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Measure out the milk and add the vanilla extract to it.
O Whisk together the dry ingredients and add in milk and vanilla, stirring to combine. The mixture will still be dry.
O Add in mashed bananas and mix. Add in melted butter and stir until batter is somewhat smooth.
O Heat a skillet or grilled on medium heat. Using a 1/3 cup measure, spoon batter into rounds and cook until bubbles form on top – about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for a minute or two more.
The best part about these pancakes is that you can serve them with fresh bananas or berries on top too! You can even add a little vanilla extract to your maple syrup for an added surprise. There is no better way than spending your Sunday reading the newspaper, watching TV, and eating a delicious brunch! I am such a fan of brunch and cannot wait to make these amazing pancakes.
