Banana Nut Sourdough Pancakes With Maple Whipped Cream

Banana and Walnut, meet your new friend Sourdough!

I was inspired to make these, so I’m leaving them here for you to be inspired too. They are a very easy adaptation of my original Perfectly Chewy, Traditional Sourdough Pancakes.

They also made a great take-along snack the next day. I spread them with honey-butter and fold them over for portability. Basically like a honey-butter banana pancake taco. Hmmmm, maybe I’m on to something!

Preparing Banana Nut Sourdough Pancakes


4 large bananas
3/4 cup walnuts
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon maple syrup

Follow all the directions for my Traditional Sourdough Pancakes. Just before cooking the pancakes, mash three bananas and add them to the batter. Add almost all the walnuts, saving a tablespoon or two for topping the pancakes. Add the vanilla and mix the batter well.

Cook the pancakes over medium heat. I use a Lodge Cast Iron Griddle. These pancakes need a little extra cooking time because of the banana. Be careful not to have the temperature too high or they will burn before they cook through.

Whip the cream and maple syrup together. Cut the last banana into coins. When the pancakes are done top them with the whipped cream, banana slices, and reserved walnuts. Drizzle with maple syrup if desired.

Hi, could I save some batter for later? It's a lot! But adding the bananas really make a difference. We've always had them mixed in our pancakes, so I appreciatte you showing when to incorporate them. Having said that, I'm worried about the saving for later issue.

Butter For All

Hi Morena!

Sorry for the slow response! I hope you ended up saving the batter! I either save the batter, OR, I cook off all the pancakes and cool them for reheating later. They warm up nicely on a skillet and it's an easy snack or breakfast!

Hope you have a wonderful day!
