Reviews for Banana Pancakes with Berries
"I loved these pancakes. I did not have strawberries but they would be great with those also. I thought the batter was a little thin but they cooked up perfectly. Well done Katie Sloan"
"I mashed 2 overripe bananas in with the milk mixture instead of cutting slices, The strawberry topping made them so special!"
"Made these this morning and they are fantastic! This is my new, favorite pancake recipe. I didn't have buttermilk so I made my own by mixing a Tbs. of vinegar with a cup of milk. Worked great."
