Why I Love This Recipe

DO AHEAD: The batter can be prepared entirely the night before. Or stir together the dry ingredients and store at room temperature. Whisk together the wet ingredients and refrigerate, covered, overnight.

IN THE MORNING (ABOUT 15 minutes): Heat the griddle. Stir together the batter, slice the bananas, and cook the pancakes.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted butter
1 or 2 ripe bananas
Maple syrup, honey, yogurt, or sour cream


In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and vegetable oil.

Very gradually add the liquid to the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined. Do not overmix or the pancakes will be tough.

Peel and thinly slice the bananas. (If you'd rather garnish the finished pancakes with bananas, wait to slice them.)

Heat a griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat, and lightly grease it with vegetable oil. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of batter into the hot pan. When the tops of the pancakes begin to bubble, cover them with banana slices. When the pancakes are lightly browned on the bottom, flip them. As they cook through, transfer them to a baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven while you cook the rest of the batter.

Serve warm with maple syrup, honey, yogurt, or sour cream.
