If you aren't feeling like plain old homemade pancakes for breakfast give this recipe a try. They aren't any harder to make than your usual pancakes, but the added banana gives them a whole new taste. Below is the recipe for delicious homemade banana pancakes from scratch.
1 In a bowl, mix the flour, wheat germ, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk and bananas.
2 Add the flour mixture, a little at a time, in egg mixture until it is blended.
3 Heat a skillet or griddle and spray with olive oil. Pour 1/3 cup of the batter into the prepared pan and bake until edges are golden and the top is bubbly.
4 Turn with a spatula and cook the other side until golden.
Be sure to enjoy your homemade banana pancakes with your favorite toppings. Maple syrup is always a good choice. Try them with a little peanut butter spread on top. If you've got a sweet tooth then just drizzle a little chocolate syrup on top and add a dab of whip cream. These are sure to impress!
Who doesn't like pancakes? There probably a few twisted people who don't love warm fluffy pancakes dripping with sweet maple syrup. Dress them up a little bit with fruit and whip cream and they taste even better. Do you make pancakes at home, just get them at restaurants, or hope that your friend or family member makes them for you when you go over their house?
If you aren't much of a cook but want to have fresh pancakes, you may be thinking about trying pancake mix. You can use Bisquick as pancake mix or another generic mix made especially for pancakes. There are also fancy mixes you can buy online or at country stores. Some of these even include other things added into them such as dried fruit, nuts, cinnamon, or other flavorings. Are these just as good as homemade pancakes?
If you do make pancakes and make them well, you might sometimes be tempted to use a mix because it's easier and faster. Honestly, I have tried mixes and I like them just as much. The only difference with a mix is that you don't have to add eggs and oil or mix together the dry ingredients. You can pretty much expect the same or at least similar results with a mix. As long as you don't over-mix the batter, it will look the same just before you make the pancakes. In fact, it's probably the cooking of the pancakes that could do the most damage to your pancakes, and as I said, you could over-cook or under-cook pancakes made with a mix and pancakes made from a scratch alike.
