What's in it


For Bananas:
4 ripe, medium bananas sliced
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons sugar

For Pancakes
1 cup (about 5 ounces) all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
Butter, for griddle

How to cook it


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium high heat. Add one banana's worth of slices and fry until just golden. Transfer slices to a baking dish. Repeat with remaining bananas. Sprinkle fried bananas with 4 tablespoons sugar and bake until bubbling, 15 minutes. Clean skillet.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cocoa powder in a medium bowl. Add egg and milk and whisk until batter is well combined.
  • When bananas are almost ready, heat 1 tablespoon butter on skillet until starting to foam. Add batter and cook pancakes until golden on bottom, about 3 minutes, flip with a spatula, and cook until just cooked through, about another 2 minutes more. Place pancakes on plates. Continue making pancakes with remaining batter. Top pancakes with roasted bananas and serve.
