Strawberry Banana Pancakes

by Melissa on April 18, 2011

Springtime to us means a day trip to the strawberry farm. After coming home with a gallon of fresh strawberries, the next thing to do was to start whipping up some recipes using these amazingly delicious berries.

First up, strawberry banana pancakes. This is easily the best pancake I have ever eaten. Maybe I haven’t tried enough pancakes, but these are amazing. I didn’t completely make these from scratch, I used pancake mix instead of going with flour, baking powder, etc. So, that made the pancake process a bit faster.

Ingredients (makes about 12 pancakes):
- pancake mix or all-purpose baking mix
- 1 1/3 cups milk
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 very ripe banana (mashed)
- 1 1/2 cups strawberries (sliced into small pieces)
- Optional: powdered sugar and maple syrup for serving

Let’s cook!
1. Mix the pancake mix, milk, vanilla extract egg and mashed banana in a large mixing bowl until the mixture is smooth and well-blended.
2. Fold the strawberries to the pancake mixture.
3. Heat a lightly greased griddle on medium high heat. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle.
4. Cook until you see bubbles on the surface of the pancake, then flip the cake using a spatula and cook until golden.
5. Top with powdered sugar and syrup, if desired, serve and enjoy!

I’ve always wanted to do a pour photo! This is my first one, pretty happy with how it turned out.

Um, these look delicious and I want them for breakfast tomorrow! Maybe this is a dumb question, but how much pancake mix should I use??

Hi Amy! 2 cups of pancake mix will make about 12 medium sized pancakes, so you can adjust accordingly :)

Lovely pancakes and really good! I have made them several times and have used kiwi in place of the strawberries on an occasion – actually very yummy! My family loves them and I have always liked making pancakes so I like to get a little creative! :)
