Call Me A Tease...


So I've been wanting to share these pictures of some delicious plantain pancakes I made, but since I lost the paper where I wrote down the (fabulous) recipe, I've been putting off posting the photographs. It's been so long that I've decided to just go ahead and post the photos sans recipe (*ghasp!*) When the two new plantains that are sitting on my counter ripen fully I will just have to recreate and rewrite the recipe, and I'll post it to share with you all at that time. Yes, they are really delicious enough to warrant this recipe recreation project. In the mean time, I taunt you with some yummy photos.

I'm loving my new upstate New York life so far. Gardening tons (I've planted so many vegetables, and the lettuce and spinach is already coming up). Stretching a lot. Sleeping a lot. Working a little. Just bought my first car. And oh, yes, cooking for my parents. I am earning my keep, I suppose you could say.

Aliza - This post is so old, and I don't know where I have the slip of paper I wrote this recipe out on. But I think I just took a very ripe plantain, mashed or pureed it well, and added it to pancake mix (made with a little less liquid than usual), then cooked them up - You have to fry on pretty low heat or they'll burn, if I remember right. I think this photo is of pancakes I made from scratch but I'm sure you can do this with pancake mix. Try cinnamon and/or nutmeg as spices to balance out the plantain flavor.

Here are some recipes I found online when I just searched for plantain pancakes to give you some other ideas:
