Banana Pancakes with Nutella Syrup


One of our favorite treats is a crepe with bananas and nutella. Now crepes are not hard to make what so ever but they do take some planning as the batter needs to rest for a few hours. So I thought why not just make those flavors into something you can just make and cook. So Banana Pancakes with Nutella Syrup was born. The pancakes have great banana flavor and the nutella gives the right amount of chocolate flavor and sweetness.

Banana Pancakes
1 cup AP Flour
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3 tablespoons of butter, melted
1 egg
1 cup of buttermilk
1 banana, ripe and mashed

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside. Combine the butter, egg, buttermilk, and banana in another bowl and set aside. Make a well in the dry mixture and add in the wet and stir until just combined. Cook on a buttered griddle over medium to medium high heat.

Nutella Syrup -
1/2 cup of Nutella
2-3 tablespoons of heavy cream

Combine the Nutella and cream in a small sauce pan and heat over medium low heat stirring to combine. Add more or less cream depending on how thick you want the syrup to be.

Pancake recipe adapted from Dorie Greenspan's Buttermilk Pancakes.
