Pancakes is my kids favourite. Usually I will buy the ready mix and mix eggs with that and I will make. Somehow I did not like the smell of eggs. Watching the cookery show is my favourite hobby. I watched this recipe in a tamil television and I wanted to try it. The recipe said of adding walnuts, nutmeg etc, I did not have , I modified in to banana pan cake. Here, we don’t have maple syrup so I served with honey. My daughter liked with tomato sauce?! She wanted to call as Homemade pancakes!!


Banana – 2 (riped)
Maida / All purpose flour – 1 cup
Yellow Corn flour – ¼ cup
Powdered sugar – 4 to 5 tbsp
Baking powder – ¾ tbsp
Milk – 1 cup (as per requirement)
Butter – 1 Tbsp
Vanilla essence – few drops

How to make Pancakes

1.Mash the banana. Combine mashed banana, all purpose flour, yellow corn flour, baking powder, powdered sugar, butter.
2. Add milk and make as the dosa batter. Keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes. ( I have kept for about 30 minutes)
3. Add the vanilla essence and mix well. If you want to add walnuts you can add in this stage, grate the nutmeg and add. ( a Pinch)
4. Heat the tawa and make pancakes.
5. I served with honey.

I like this recipe a lot...makes me want to go make some now. Thanks for sharing!


Vidhas,About your query on the sweet potato pancake recipe,baking powder adds extra fluff to the pancakes cannot replace the egg.You can use Ener-G Egg Replacer or a tablespoon of Flax seed meal instead or try with 2 tablespoon of cornstarch or half a mashed banana .Hope that helps dear:)


Thank you Yasmeen for the reply , surely will follow the tips.


Thank You vidya. Harini, Shama,Jaishree, Desmone,Priya and sowmya.

thanks for such wonderful recipe. but i m confused about yellow corn flour. what is this yellow corn flour because i have never heard about it. yet i can imagine - do u mean by custard powder? pls clearify this point.


Thanks Shaikh. I have updated in your blog.


Icould not able to comment mr. Shaikh, the yellow corn flour is the one which we get from grinded the corn kernels. I bought it from nilgiri s supermarket in chennai. It is yellow in colour, the regular one will be white in colour.
