Grilled Banana Pancakes

Grilled Banana Pancakes
Many years ago, when I lived in the Tropics, I used to eat a street food that was Bananas wrapped in something akin to Phyllo dough and deep fried - then sprinkled with sugar. It was heavenly! Cooking bananas carmelizes their sugars and really magnifies their natural sweetness.

These pancakes evoke some of the flavours of those delightful bites.

Grilled Banana Pancakes
Slice a ripe Banana
Prepare Cinnamon Sugar (4 parts sugar, 1 part cinnamon)
Banana Pancakes on the Griddle
Prepare Vegan Pancake Mix Batter
Heat Griddle.
Once griddle is HOT (a drop of water should sizzle on the griddle when dropped), pour on silver-dollar sized pancakes.
Top the pancakes with Banana Slices, then Sprinkle with Cinnamon Sugar.
As the tops become all bubbly and begin to dry around the edges, flip the pancakes over.
Leave them long enough to let the Bananas cook, and the Cinnamon Sugar carmelize (a little longer than you might otherwise leave pancakes without fruit cooking in)

Serve & enjoy!


I eat these plain, but they may be served with buttery spread & syrup, or even with Nondairy Ice Cream, if you like.

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
