Banana Buttermilk Pancakes with Nutella

Everyone knows that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. That’s why a special breakfast just for Dad is the perfect way to show how much you care this Father’s Day. I can’t think of a more scrumptious and decadent breakfast than a plate full of Buttermilk Banana Pancakes topped off with a spoonful (or two, or three) of Nutella.

I won’t get to celebrate Father’s Day with my own Dad this year, because he is deceased. But I will get to celebrate with the other special Dads in my life like my son, Nathan.

Banana Buttermilk Pancakes with Nutella

Making Dad’s day special.

Although I can’t spend Father’s Day with my own Dad, I still look forward to helping my grandchildren treat their Dad to an extra special stack of banana buttermilk pancakes – something I know he will absolutely love. I just know he will enjoy sitting out on the front porch in the morning, with a tray of delicious banana buttermilk pancakes, Nutella, and orange juice. Maybe even a small bouquet of flower, since it’s an extra special day.

Buttermilk Banana Pancakes with Nutella


1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg
2 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
2 overripe bananas (mashed)
rapsberries (for garnish)

2. In a separate bowl, mix the buttermilk, egg, butter and bananas.

3. Using a wire whisk, combine the wet and dry ingredients making sure to not over mix.

4. Heat a pan and melt a touch of butter in it.

5. Pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the mixture into the pan and heat until the surface starts to bubble and the bottom is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.

6. Flip the pancake and cook the other side until the bottom is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Remove the pancake to a plate, and spread 1 to 2 teaspoons of Nutella over the top of the pancake.

7. Repeat, stacking the pancakes as you go. Top with a few raspberries or another fresh fruit of your choosing.

    My grandsons are crazy about pancakes but I don’t know if two of them have ever had Nutella. I know the one with me loves Nutella so I will definitely have to make these for him.

    I can do the pancakes, Nutella and even the raspberries but I have to draw the line at bananas. Although I suppose I could leave the banana out
