Banana yogurt pancakes

It’s Sunday again! This week sure passed really fast. It was overall a nice one. The weather was great, well not just great but amazing. I don’t remember ever being this warm in November. Since I dread the cold, you just can’t imagine how happy I am. I wish the whole winter could be like this, but I guess that’s not going to happen, so I might as well enjoy it while I can.

I made pancakes again. This time with banana and yogurt. I think Saturday is officially my pancake day. I just feel like making pancakes then, I don’t know why. I showed you the ones with vanilla and buttermilk a while ago and I’ve been meaning to try a banana version since then. And I finally did. I actually have another idea for banana pancakes and we’ll see when I’ll try it, but till then enjoy this one here.

This is a small batch, enough for one person and it makes a pretty nice breakfast.The pancakes are moist and fluffy, so I’m sure you’ll like them. It will be better to use a very ripe banana here (mine wasn’t) or add maybe one more tablespoon honey. I’m sure this will make them even better.

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or more, to taste)
  • 1 medium banana, mashed (better use a very ripe one)
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 40-50g unsalted butter, melted and cooled + more for frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Add the egg, honey and banana to a medium bowl. Stir the baking powder into the yogurt and add to the other ingredients. Start mixing with an electric mixer on low-speed and pour in the melted butter and then the flour with the cinnamon and salt. Combine everything and your batter is ready (don’t overmix).

Heat a frying pan over medium heat then coat generously with butter. Pour part of the batter (about 1/4) and cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes or until browned. Grease the pan with butter for each pancake.

The topping is up to you, I had mine with more honey.

  1. I followed the recipe to the T, and these the batter is too thick. I needed to add 1/2 cup of milk to allow me to pour it into a pan. As it’s written this recipe is more like cake batter. I think it could use some tweaking.


    1. The batter really is thick. You might need to spread it with a spoon. I had my doubts too, but it worked out just fine. The pancakes ended up good and I liked them, which is why I didn’t make any changes. I’m sorry you had a problem with it. Thank you for trying my recipe and sharing your opinion. I appreciate the feedback.
