Plantain pancakes – These are ultimate comfort food made from plantains and a few other ingredients. They are very light and tender almost like the French crepes. However, the process involved in making these pancakes are not as intimidating as that of the French crepes.
Servings 3 people
Calories 194 kcal 1 Plantain large ripe or overripe 2 Eggs 1/4 Cup Flour 1 Tbsp butter or oil 1/4 Tsp nutmeg 1/4 Tsp baking powder 2 Tbsp Milk about 2 to 4 Tbsp milk 1/8 Tsp Salt
Peel the plantain and cut them into slices or little chunks. Place the slices in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Add all the other ingredients and blend until smooth and lump free
Heat a skillet/frying pan on a medium heat. Brush with a little bit of oil and once it becomes hot, pour the batter about a quarter cup at a time.
Let it cook for few seconds to a minute until it begins to hold up just like the regular pancake
Flip to the other side and cook for few more seconds
Repeat the process with the remaining batter
Serve with honey, maple syrup or whatever topping you prefer. Enjoy!
Cutting up the plantain into small slices or pieces will make it really easy for the blender to blend it up
Adding butter or oil makes the pancakes softer
The baking powder will make it a little fluffier
Feel free to add other spices or flavors like Cinnamon, Ginger or vanilla. Comes out really nice!
Use a griddle (I don’t have one) or a heavy bottom pan (this is what I used) to prevent your pancakes from getting burned or sticky
Don’t increase the heat to make them cook faster because they burn. keep an eye on them!
