Banana Wheat Pancake ( Banana Gothumai Dosai)

IMG_5095 As I have mentioned in my earlier post,  In recent times Pancakes has become one of the common breakfast. Though I generally prepare Whole Wheat Pancake for my son, in the mission of adding some fruits  into his diet tried Pancakes with banana Checkout my other pancakes Eggless Pancake Strawberry Whole Wheat Pancake Cornmeal Pancake

Banana Pancake:

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Resting Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 15 mins | Serves : 2

Recipe Category: Breakfast


Dry Ingredients

Wheat Flour – 1 cup

Cinnamon powder – 1/4 tsp

Baking powder – 2 tsp

Honey/White Sugar/Brown Sugar – 2 tbsp (Adjust according to your taste, I used brown sugar)

Salt – 1/4 tsp

Wet Ingredients:

Banana –  1 (1/2 cup mashed)

Egg – 1

Milk – 1 cup + 4 tbsp (I used 2% milk)

Vanilla extract – 1/4 tsp

Olive oil/butter – 1 tbsp + 1 tsp (for the batter)

Butter –  1 tbsp (Unsalted,  Melted at room temperature)


  • In a bowl add all the dry Ingredients; mix well and Set aside
  • In a separate bowl beat the eggs well; add milk banana puree, melted butter and vanilla extract; whisk well
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir gently.  Set batter aside for 10 minutes


  • Heat an iron skillet or a non-stick pan on low to medium heat. Reduce heat to low and pour a ladle full of batter in the center of the pan. Do not spread the batter. Allow it to spread on its own. Add little butter around the edges. Cook the pancake on low medium heat for half a minute or until bubbles appear over the pancake

  • When the pancake turns to a nice golden shade, flip it over and cook for half a minute and transfer to the serving plate
  • Serve warm, topped with butter/honey/Maple Syrup/Powdered Sugar/Caramel syrup/butterscotch syrup/Fruit syrup

My Notes:

  • For eggless version add 2 bananas instead of one
  • If you are resting the batter for a long time drizzle some tbsp of milk to reach the desired consistency
  • All purpose flour can be used instead of whole wheat
  • Cardamom powder can be added for flavoring
