The classical banana and egg pancakes just got a quick version. Topped with freshly made blueberries and blackberries jam, these are super healthy and always tasty.



  • 4 medium eggs
  • 2 bananas (peeled, mashed)
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 2 tsp butter (for cooking)

Topping Berries

  • 100 g fresh or frozen blueberries + blackberries
  • 1 tsp butter (for cooking)



  • Prepare the bananas, peeling and mashing them into a puree.
  • In a medium bowl, add eggs, mashed bananas, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix all the ingredients using a whisk or a big fork.
  • Preheat a cast iron skillet and grease it with 1/2 tsp butter.
  • Using a medium ladle, add your first pancake into the skillet.
  • Cook on small heat until lightly brown on one side, then carefully flip using a silicone spatula.
  • Continue cooking on the other side until done, making sure not to burn the pancake.
  • Once done remove the pancake using the same silicone spatula and set on a wide plate. Stack all the pancakes on top of each other.
  • Repeat from #3 until the entire batter is gone, making sure you add that 1/2 tsp of butter before each one.

Topping Berries

  • Add berries and 1-2 tsp butter into heated cast iron skillet.
  • Cook on medium heat until all the water has evaporated and the berries have transformed into a jam.
  • Add freshly cooked jam on top of the pancakes and serve. Enjoy!


You can use any type of berries. Blueberries and blackberries is what I used but you can also use cranberries, raspberries or strawberries, if you like to do so.
