Ingredients you will need for this recipe
These pancakes are best eaten right away but freezing them is also a great alternative. Wrap in plastic or store in an airtight container and freeze for up to 2 months.
You can pull them out as you wish and reheat them via the microwave, oven, or even in the air fryer!
You can store them in the fridge for up to two days as well. But I find with pancakes their integrity changes quickly as far as their texture and the fruit as well, which is why I recommend eating or freezing them the day you make them!
Tips & Tricks
- This was made in a 9×13 inch pan you can also make this in an 11×15 inch pan without any adjustments (The pancakes will just be a little thinner.).
- If you are worried about your banana slices turning dark or brown you can lightly toss them in a little lemon juice. This doesn’t effect the flavor but will keep them fresher for longer.
- This syrup recipe is a perfect compliment to these pancakes. If you want to use a different type of syrup, you are welcome to.

Thank you again, Dawn. I’ll adjust the recipe card. I’m sorry for the inconvenience, but I’m so glad it turned out for you.
Then something else is off. I had to add 1.5 cups to make it look close to the pictures you have of the recipe. How can 3 cups of flour be moistened by just 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 TBL of buttermilk? Once I added the 1.5 cups of buttermilk it looked right consistency wise and it ended up baking a bit longer but tasting good.
Yes, that is correct.
So… I’m making these and I don’t think 1/2 TBL buttermilk can possibly be right…..
