How To Make Banana Pancakes With Pancake Mix?


  • For the Maple Butter **
  • 1 cup pancake mix – just take your pick, the groceries have lots of brands to choose from.
  • 1/2 teaspoon - freshly ground cinnamon.
  • 1/8 teaspoon - freshly ground nutmeg.
  • 1 cup - milk.
  • ½ cup - medium ripe bananas.
  • 1 egg - beaten.
  • 1 tablespoon - butter or oil (any oil will do).
  • ½ teaspoon - vanilla extract.
  • 1 cup - medium ripe banana, sliced.
  • Whipped cream.

Let us start making it!

1. Mash your bananas, set it aside. This is the best time to use over-ripe bananas on your counter top. Over-ripe is best for cakes, you can really taste the banana and it smells so good.

2. Mix all dry ingredients (pancake mix, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg) in a bowl.

3. Combine the rest of the ingredients (bananas, milk, and egg) in a separate bowl and whisk. Some use mixers in this step especially when they did not bother mashing the banana with a fork.

4. Combine the dry ingredients mix to the egg mixture. Whisk it properly until you see that they are well combined already.

Now you are ready to cook the pancakes!

5. Heat your skillet to 180 degrees C.

6. You can use non-stick cooking spray to your pan. For me, I used butter.

7. Once butter is melted, pour ½ cup of batter into the skillet.

8. You have mixed your batter with banana. The result will be a heavier pancake so it will be a little bit hard to flip it over. Do it gently, when you do so.

9. When both sides are already golden brown and the air bubbles have all popped, you can scoop it out already and put in your prepared platter.

10. Do the same to the rest of the batter until you have all your hot pancakes done.

11. Arrange the sliced banana on top, drizzle it with your maple butter and garnish with the whipping cream.

12. Serve and Enjoy!

How To Make The Maple Butter?

In this recipe, I opted to use maple butter to glaze my hot pancakes. You can choose any kind that will suit you. Some try it with honey for the sweet taste. Later, you can experiment ideas on the different syrups available to choose from.

Tips For Banana Pancakes

  • Make small pancakes.
    Small pancakes are faster to cook and easy to flip. This is a practical and convenient way of serving to kids too.
  • The thinner the spatula, the easier to flip the pancakes.
  • You can put add-ons as you like it. Try nuts, chocolate chips or favorite fruits.
  • Leftover pancakes can be stored in the fridge. Warm it up in the microwave and serve as snacks for the kids.
  • Let the batter rest for at least a few minutes before cooking to allow even hydration. It will also give time for the gluten to settle down.
  • Serve it warm.
Tips For Banana Pancakes
  • Avoid overmixing the batter. The moment you mix all the ingredients together (wet and dry), gluten starts to develop immediately. The more you mix, the more gluten to develop. The result will be solid, hard and chewy pancakes.
  • Do not pour the batter when it is not yet the right temperature. It will make your pancake greasy.
  • Avoid setting the heat too high. Pancakes are easy and fast to cook. The Overly heated pan will quickly burn it.
  • Do not flip it too soon. If possible, just flip it once. Trying to flip it several times will make it deflate and you will lose that wonderful fluffy taste.
  • Try to check if your ready mix has sugar in it (there are those who does not have). It does not harm a lot to add sugar to your batter for a sweet taste.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones, not the other way around. It is easier to mix this way.
  • Do you want a fluffier pancake? Beat separately the egg white until it is fluffy and stiff. Add in the egg yolk to the rest of the ingredients like the normal process. Fold in the egg whites into the batter right before cooking. Cook!
