Grandma's Banana Cinnamon Pancakes

Friday, December 11, 2015
Grandma's banana cinnamon pancakes are my grandson's favorite homemade pancakes.

He just gobbles them up and I wanted to share my homemade from scratch recipe with you.

Since kids are such picky eaters, this is one that hit a home run for us and I am hoping for your kids too.

This is an easy recipe to follow below.

Pancake Recipe

2 cups flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups buttermilk

3 large eggs, separated

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Optional: fresh whipped cream

nonstick cooking spray or margarine

Sliced Bananas

Cinnamon Sugar Mixture ( 1/2 cup white sugar and add 2 tablespoons of cinnamon mixed together)

Butter or margarine

Your favorite Syrup


Sift flour, sugar, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat buttermilk, egg yolks and melted butter until blended. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form. Stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture until just blended (there will be some lumps). Add egg whites and carefully fold in until just blended.

Heat a large nonstick griddle over medium heat until hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Brush with a thin film of oil (or melted margarine which I used).

For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle. add sliced bananas on top and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Adjust heat to medium-low and cook until tops are covered with small bubbles and edges appear to be setting, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook until golden brown on other side, another 2 minutes.

Repeat with the remaining batter.

You can serve with more sliced bananas, syrup and whipped cream.
