Recipe Notes

If you want more richness added to this recipe, you can swap out the yogurt with heavy cream. This results in a thicker, creamier batter and a more decadent banana bread.

Frequently Asked Questions

My pancakes keep burning, how do I fix this?

Pancakes take a little practice to master. Look for bubbles on the surface before flipping your pancake. You can also slightly lift the side of your pancake to ensure it isn’t browning too quickly.

Why are my pancakes still raw on the inside?

This could be due to the pan being too hot, which will lead to the outsides getting cooked and burnt too quickly and the insides are left undercooked. Keep your flame low or medium at most so your pancakes can cook evenly.

How can I achieve perfect, fluffy pancakes?

Let your batter rest for 5-30 minutes before spooning them onto the pan. This allows the gluten to relax after being mixed, resulting in light and fluffy pancakes. In addition, make sure your pan and butter/oil is hot, but not smoking before cooking your pancakes.

Why does the recipe call for overripe bananas?

Overripe bananas tend to be softer, making them easier to mash and incorporate into the mixture. They are also sweeter, which will result in tastier pancakes.
