These pancakes are probably the best pancakes from all over the world. They are sweet, scrumptious and healthy. The ingredients are the healthiest types we can use. You would never know by the flavor you get. The pancakes end up dense, yet fluffy. Plantains are similar to bananas, yet very different. A banana can be eaten raw, although, as children, my siblings and I would occasionally eat raw plantains, the plantain is better if you cook it. When I say use a soft plantain, please do, it has the most natural sugars still. You do want the plantain to be very ripe, they are easier to work with and carry a sweet taste rather than the sour taste of its unripe alternative.
Plantain pancakes are made the same way you would make a plain banana pancake, these are so much more flavourful though. They will also soak up the syrup better since they are dense. These plantain pancakes are great for breakfast, but you could make a coconut sauce to top them with and have them as a dessert. One of the great things about plantains is that when you cook them, they become a little sweeter. If you are one of us that love pancakes, then you really need to try these Plantain pancakes, you may never go back to normal pancakes again. These are a wonderful treat if you have guests that stay overnight around the holidays. Your guests will enjoy the treat.
