Ingredients for Simple Pancake Recipe

What do you need?

A banana and an egg. That’s it. Pretty simple, right? You can dress it up with a dash of cinnamon or some walnuts, but it’s just a banana and an egg.

How to Make this Simple Pancake Recipe

These are super delicious and easy to whip up. Mix together one egg and one banana. It makes three small pancakes. For a larger batch, just use the one to one ratio.

That easy and simple.

It’s almost like it’s not real it’s so easy!

Now the consistency of the “batter” for this simple pancake recipe is a little different from your general pancake, and they won’t bubble when they’re ready to flip. Let the pancake set well on the first side. That means, leave it alone. Let it cook until it’s nearly cooked through, then flip. Done. It tastes just like banana bread. I like to top mine with some crushed walnuts. My kids prefer no nuts and just add syrup.

Hope you enjoy!
