How To Make
It is an easy to make recipe. First whisk flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Mash the banana in a medium bowl, add in the egg, oil and yogurt. Mix until smooth and pour it into the dry mixture.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-low heat and drop the batter into the skillet using an ice cream scoop. Cook until you see bubbles. Flip them over and cook for another minute. Add a little oil before cooking another batch. If the skillet is too hot, remove it from the heat for a minute and then continue.
If you want to give them a perfect circular shape, use a cookie cutter or a glass and cut the cooked pancakes before serving.
Tips For Fluffy Pancakes
These pancakes are perfectly fluffy with the help of yogurt and baking soda, but there a few more tips to make your pancakes fluffy each time.
For one thing, you need to be careful about the heat. It is one of the key points when making fluffy pancakes. Pancakes won’t rise if the heat is too low. They are likely to burn if it is too high even before their inside cooks. Medium-low heat is the best. If the skillet gets too hot after cooking the first batch, remove it from the heat for a minute and then put it back over medium-low heat to continue cooking the remaining batter.
