I always go gaga over farm produce and am notorious for returning with bags full of green vegetables and fruits. The only problem arises when I buy lots of bananas. They seem to ripen much too quickly for my liking.

This recipe is a fantastic way to use up the bananas that are threatening to jump into the bin.

My son made this all by himself and he’s only 9- it is easy, it’s yum & nutritious. Need I say more?


  • Flour/ Maida- 1 1/2 cup
  • Baking powder- 2 1/2 tsp
  • Salt- 1/2 tsp
  • Sugar- 2 tbsp
  • Banana, overripe- 2
  • Milk- 1 cup
  • Eggs- 2
  • Vanilla extract- 1/2 tsp
  • Melted butter- 2 tbsp
  • Oil/ butter for cooking- 2-3 tbsp



In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.


In another small bowl, mash the banana with a fork until almost smooth.


Whisk in the eggs and mix.


Then add the milk and vanilla and whisk until well blended. Add the melted butter.

Pour oil/ butter onto a pan. When it melts, pour 1 ladlefull of the batter. Fry pancakes on medium heat until bubbles start forming on top of each pancake and the underside is golden brown- about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until the bottom is golden brown and the top is puffed, 1 to 2 minutes more.

Serve hot with honey/ maple syrup or banana slices.
