Equipment You'll Need
How To Make Banana Pancakes with Bisquick
In a medium bowl, add the bananas. Mash them well until the bananas is very mashed.
Add the large eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and Bisquick mix to mashed banana. Mix the pancake mixture together. It's ok if there are a few lumps left in the batter, it doesn't have to be smooth.
Place a little butter in a griddle or a pan. Scoop ¼ cup of batter into the melted butter in the pan and cook until bubbles start coming through the pancake, which will take about 2-3 minutes. Both sides of the pancake should be golden brown.
Flip the pancake over and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Serve with warm maple syrup, fresh fruit, and butter.
Lynn's Tip: Resist the urge to push the pancakes down with the spatula once you flip them. Let them cook on their own and only touch them each time you flip them. Pushing them down while they cook with result in a tough, dense pancake instead of a good pancake that is light and fluffy.
Tips For Making The Perfect Pancakes
- The pancakes are ready to flip when the middle bubbles. Small bubbles will start to come through the batter. The edges of the pancakes will also start to dry out. When you see these two signs, it's time to flip the pancakes.
- Use an ice cream scoop or a measuring cup to measure the batter. This ensures the pancakes are all the same size will cook evenly.
- Do not cook the pancakes too high. Medium low heat to medium heat is the best for cooking pancakes. Too high and the outside will be too cooked and the inside will be raw. Too low and the pancakes will take a long time to cook.
Variations of Bisquick Banana Pancakes
- Add some spices! Add a teaspoon of cinnamon, vanilla extract, brown sugar, or pumpkin spice seasoning to kick up the flavor!
- Make them chocolate chip! Chocolate chip pancakes are a staple in my house. My kids love a 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips added to the pancake batter! Sometimes I even just let my little helper throw handfuls of chocolate chips into the batter. You only live once, right?
- Make them in a sheet pan! To make these in a sheet pan, add a layer of parchment paper to a sheet pan and spray the edges. Pour the entire batter into the sheet pan and then bake for 20 minutes.
- Add flavorings! Swirl in peanut butter or Nutella to make these banana pancakes even more delicious! Peanut butter banana pancakes would be so delicious!
- How to store the batter. Once the pancake batter is mixed together, cover the batter with plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container. The batter will stay fresh in the refrigerator up to 24 hours.
- How to store leftover pancakes. Once the fluffy banana pancakes are cooked, place the pancakes in an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator up to 4 days. To reheat them, place them in the toaster oven for 1 minute or until the pancakes are warm. You can also reheat the pancakes on the stovetop in a dry pan over medium-low heat.
- To keep the pancakes warm, after they are cooked place them on a parchment paper lined baking tray or baking sheet and keep them warm in a 200 degree oven.
- How to freeze the pancakes. Once the pancakes are cooked, allow them to cool completely. Wrap them in plastic wrap and place them in a Ziploc bag. Freeze the pancakes up to 4 months. To reheat the banana pancakes, place them in the toaster oven for 2 minutes or reheat them in a dry pan over the stovetop.
Frequently Asked Questions
Since we are adding eggs and milk to the recipe, you can't use the complete pancake mix. I haven't tried this recipe using that type of pancake mix.
The numbers of pancakes you can make depend on how big the cup batter is that you cook when you make your pancakes. If you make them silver dollar size, you will get over a dozen pancakes. if you make big pancakes, you might only get 6.
