Delicious pancakes that taste just like warm banana bread! Great for using over ripe bananas!
Course Breakfast
Cuisine American, Caribbean


  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large very ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • chopped pecans for garnish optional

Vanilla Maple Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat a skillet to medium low heat. In a large mixing bowl whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon, brown sugar and nutmeg. Add the milk and vanilla and stir until incorporated. It will be thick.
  2. Add in mashed bananas and melted butter and mix together until the batter is smooth.
  3. Spray skillet with cooking spray and add 1/3 cup of batter to the center. It takes about 1-3 minutes for the bubbles to appear because the batter is thicker. Once the bubbles appear flip to the other side.
  4. Repeat with remaining batter. I was able to get about 8 pancakes.
  5. To make the vanilla maple glaze, whisk together the maple syrup, powdered sugar and vanilla. Serve over warm pancakes.
