Banana Sour Cream Pancakes

I saw this recipe at Dessert First and knew I had to try it. Both of my kids LOVE bananas (are there many children who don't?), so it was really a no-brainer. I loved the chunks of banana inside the pancake! These were really good and a great weekend breakfast!

Banana Sour Cream Pancakes

1 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup plus
1 tablespoon milk
2 extra-large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
Unsalted butter
2 ripe bananas, diced, plus extra for serving
Pure maple syrup

Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sour cream, milk, eggs, vanilla, and lemon zest. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, mixing only until combined.

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat until it bubbles. Ladle the pancake batter into the pan to make 3 or 4 pancakes. Distribute a rounded tablespoon of bananas on each pancake. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until bubbles appear on top and the underside is nicely browned. Flip the pancakes and then cook for another minute until browned. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel, add more butter to the pan, and continue cooking pancakes until all the batter is used.

Serve with sliced bananas, butter and maple syrup.

I'm going to make these for Grumpy this weekend! Usually every Sunday morning he gets pancakes and bacon. I probably won't use bananas because he likes his "plain". I tell him that is boring. lol. This will be a nice change from my old recipe!

Believe it or not, my kids don't like bananas. Shocking, I know!

But I think they'll like the pancakes plain!

These are fabulous pancakes. I make them all the time without the bananas and they are our favorite recipe.
