The Most Moist, Fluffy, and Light Pancakes Ever!

It's crazy how much replacing half the flour in your typical pancake recipe with masa harina makes incredibly thick and delicious cakes. I was amazed with the results of my masa harina pancakes, and knew I had to do some more experimenting. Adding a little banana to the pancakes made them even better. Banana puree always seems to moisten baked goods up, and this truth holds over to masa harina pancakes as well. Light, fluffy, and moist, these pancakes are the bomb. You will never go back to using 100% flour again.

Banana Cinnamon Masa Harina Pancakes
makes 12
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup masa harina
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
3 tbsp. sugar
2 cups buttermilk
2 tbsp. oil
2 bananas, mashed
2 eggs
Mix together the flour, masa, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. In another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing until there are no more lumps. Spray a nonstick skillet with oil and heat it over medium heat. Once the oil sizzles, pour 1/4 cup of the batter at a time into the skillet. Cook each side for about a minute, until golden brown.
