Banana Buttermilk Pancakes
« on: February 20, 2012, 11:43:55 am »
I thought that I would post my favourite recipe for fluffy pancakes since it is Shrove Tuesday tomorrow. Here is my conversion of Nigella Lawson's recipe in her Feast cookbook for the Thermo Chef. In her preamble, she says that they " do not taste remotely bananary. In fact, I'm not sure you would immediately notice anything about them other than that they are celestially light and tender".

Ingredients:
1 very ripe banana
150g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 egg
250mL buttermilk
30 g butter, plus extra for greasing the frying pan

Method:
1. Melt butter 50 C/speed1/30 seconds, or until melted
2. Add all the other ingredients and mix speed 6/20 seconds
3. Heat the frying pan until hot. Add the extra butter, and when melted, pour small amounts into the pan to form 7-8cm cakes. After about a minute, when you can see bubbles in the pancakes, flip them over and cook the other side until golden.

Topping suggestion:
Strawberry Sauce
Wash and hull a punnet of strawberries. Place in Thermo Chef and chop speed 3/8 seconds

I usually double the recipe and replace 1/3 the white flour with whole meal. Then I don't feel quite so guilty when I smother them with strawberry jam, strawberries sauce and cream!

Very old thread but made these today and they were great!

I used 2 smallish bananas. I served with freshly made Strawberry Vanilla Jam.

Great to use up all the buttermilk I have in my freezer :)

I made a huge amount of butter this afternoon, so I might make some of these tomorrow morning for GD's breakfast, use up some of the buttermilk.

my butter won't  melt even after increase the temprature and longer. Decided to keep it as creamed butter and used soy milk snd vinegar  as no butter milk. Children enjoyed this for new year breakfast. ;D

Very yummy school holiday late breakfast. Made a double batch with strawberry vanilla jam. I'll be making these again. You're right banana is hardly noticeable.

I've just made a litre of cream into butter so I might freeze the buttermilk and do these at Christmas. I usually use it in my bread.
