Plantain Pancakes have become a staple to our Saturday mornings. You may catch them often on my Instagram account because they are my ‘splurge’. I love how simple they are with only two ingredients, plantains and gelatin. The trick to this recipe is to have ripe plantains. I often get plantains when I shop on Sunday’s and use them the following weekend for pancakes/cookies. When you mash-up a plantain, it will look like a banana mashed up. You want to eliminate any bumps and have it almost to a liquid. However, when you pour the batter on to the pan, it sets better than a banana. The key is to let the pancakes cook until golden brown before flipping. If you flip too soon, they will be mushy (which even I occasionally do by accident and we just change our pancakes to ‘mash’).
After making our pancakes, we drizzle them with maple syrup and top with ghee for an amazing breakfast!
Holiday weekends are great for spending a little extra time in the kitchen. I love mornings when I have time to create dishes. Apple pie pancakes are a fall favorite in our house. I find it fitting to make them this weekend for two reasons (1) it’s a holiday weekend and (2) it’s September, which is the month to kick off the opening apple orchards! I love fall for the fresh apples and crispy cool evenings. This weekend marks the kick off for fall. The only sad part about fall is the ending of summer. We have enjoyed our summer and among it, picked up a new addiction…wake surfing. However, every season sport has to come to an end and wake surfing is wrapping up. I’m thinking I’ll put a bow on that activity and unwrap it over Memorial Day weekend next year!!Apple Pie Pancakes
