As college students we hardly have time to have breakfast. Having something to eat before starting the day keeps our energy up and makes it a little easier to go on with the day! For our cooking class we prepared easy breakfast recipes that you all can try. This recipe was adapted from Good and Cheap by Leanne Brown. We have several copies of the book, you are welcome to come check out the cookbook!
Serves 4 (Makes 10-15)
2 cups all purpose flour
¼ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
1.5 cups of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Syrup for serving
- Combine the flour, brown sugar,baking powder,baking soda, and salt in a medium-size bowl. Mix thoroughly with a spoon.
- In another bowl, mash 2 of the bananas with a fork. Add the eggs,milk and vanilla, and mix well to combine.
- Add the dry mixture to the bananas, stirring with a spoon until everything just comes together. Tender pancakes come from not over mixing the batter.
- Let the mixture sit for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile slice the 2 remaining bananas.
- Turn the griddle to medium heat. Once its hot, melt a small amount of butter, about ½ teaspoon, in the skillet and ladle some pancake batter into the center of the pan.
Cook until it’s browned on both sides, about 30 seconds to 1 minute per side.
Serve hot with syrup plus the remaining banana slices.
