Nowadays we need to save trips in doing our groceries and having a simple, yet healthy recipe is very much helpful.
If you failed to check your grocery stocks before shopping, you could be running out of it without knowing. You could be running low on sugar for example and you cannot go back to the grocery sooner.
Others will find it difficult to be creative in preparing their dishes especially if they do not have enough time. Even while working from home, it could be at some days really as busy as working in the office and missing a stock in the kitchen for preparing your dish can be somewhat frustrating.
If you are getting bored on fried eggs, bread, or oatmeal, you might try to make your own pancakes. Kids and even adults love this simple, easy to make cakes so what’s more if you can bake your own banana white eggs pancakes.
So, what do you need to know about making banana white eggs pancake?
First, you need to make sure the bananas are ripe enough so you will get the best taste and texture. They say that ripe bananas with brown spots on their peels are very healthy compared to those with lesser spots but in cooking, it is easy to mash and is tastier. You can use a food processor to mash bananas easily or you can mash it with a fork or a spatula. Bananas are naturally sweet and that could be your natural pancake sweetener.
If you like to bake at home, then you probably have some baking powder is stock. Salt and baking powder are two of the most important ingredients in our recipe.
In case you do not have baking powder, you can still make your pancakes though the texture might be a little different. Also, it will look a bit sloppy because baking powder makes it rise and fluffy, but do not worry as it will still taste best.
Plain pancakes are easy and common so melding in bananas for a refreshing flavor plus the healthy egg whites is a hit.
Baking flour of course is better than all-purpose flour to be used as the cake’s batter but both will do best whichever is available in your pantry.
Keep in mind that you must check all those ingredients before using them if it has been stored in your pantry for quite some time. For example, check the label of you baking powder for it could be expired. All ingredients should be fresh and safe to eat.
It is important to cook pancakes in the right heat temperature because it is easy to overcook the cake and hence, it will not taste well. It could be crispy to look at, but the core could still be an uncooked batter.
The best way to cook your banana egg white cake is at low to medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes. Be sure to flip the pancake every after 2 minutes to ensure that it is cooked evenly and prevent one side from getting burnt.
Another option for you instead of using the typical flour for baking is to use the whole-wheat flour. It is fiber-rich and also nutritious.
With regards to the size of your pancakes, you can actually be creative and make it to the size you prefer-small, medium, or large. You can also tweak the shapes so as not to settle with the traditional rounded pancakes. I think it would be thrilling for kids to see that they are served with a star-shaped banana egg white pancake.
What kind of cooking pan can you use?
The regular iron skillet is good for cooking pancakes. Depending on the size of your skillet and the size of the cake you want, you can cook one piece at a time or two medium-sized pancakes.
A griddle is also a good way to cook pancakes fast and in large volume especially if you have limited time to prepare them.
You can also choose what to use to grease your pan. Greasing the pan before spreading your pancake batter will help prevent the pancake from sticking on to the pan, griddle, or skillet. Butter, margarine, or your common kitchen oil are possible choices. Use butter if you want it to taste buttery and it also smells good on pancakes. Any type of vegetable or seed oil can also do the trick like olive oil, palm oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, and sesame oil.
Let us talk about your pancake toppings.
Pancakes will be so boring without the toppings but as always, you can have it the way you want it. Banana egg white pancakes tastes better even without toppings.
If you cannot go without some toppings to make your pancake flavorful, you can put a variety of sweet and healthy toppings like berries and maple syrup, or if you cannot get enough of bananas, sliced fresh bananas will do well too. Others love chocolate syrup and honey while like to sprinkle it with chocolate bits. Jams also make good toppings like blueberry jam and strawberry jam.
