Banana Pecan Pancakes -- Tyler Florence Fridays

Time for a breakfast edition of Tyler Florence Fridays! This morning I made Tyler's Banana and Pecan Pancakes, this was a quick and easy recipe to follow, and the pancakes were wonderful.

Banana Pecan Pancakes

2 cups buttermilk I used 1 1/2 cups buttermilk and 1/2 cup skim milk
3 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup pecans, toasted and finely ground (not chopped) I left mine a little bigger than finely ground for more texture
1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
3 bananas, peeled and sliced in 1/4-inch circles I roughly mashed these instead of slicing

Confectioners' sugar, to garnish

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl whisk the buttermilk, eggs, mashed banana, and vanilla together so they are well combined. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and stir with a spoon to get rid of the lumps.

Fold in the pecans, most of the melted butter and whisk until batter is smooth. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium low heat and swirl around a little melted butter to keep the pancakes from sticking. Using a ladle pour the batter into the pan, see Cook's note*

Cook the pancakes on 1 side until they are set and then lightly press the bananas into the batter. When small bubbles appear on the uncooked surface, flip the pancakes and cook until golden on both sides, about 8 minutes. Transfer pancakes to a warming plate in the oven while you make the rest.

*Cook's note: The trick to perfect round pancakes is pouring all the batter in the same spot and letting it roll out to a complete circle.

Love that 'Grade B' maple syrup!

We are huge pancake fans here and these are a new favorite for us (except picky husband who does not like pecans, I made these after he went to work :) ) My four year old gave an unsolicited, "thanks for making these delicious pancakes, mom!" -- quite a surprise from a very picky little one. I loved the chunks of banana and crunchy pecans in every bite. We will be making these again for sure!

Hi, it's a great blog.

When was the mashed-up bananas added to the batter.

Nummy Kitchen said...

Jackie, I added the mashed bananas in the first bowl with the buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla, just whisk them all together.

Thanks for asking, I will edit the recipe to add that info in! I hope you like the pancakes if you get a chance to make them.
