What do you make for breakfast when you have bananas, eggs, milk and flour? Banana pancakes of course!

Ingredients (made 6 good sized pancakes.

100g flour

100ml milk

1 egg

1 banana, or 2 if you want to go wild

2 tbsp oil

Handful of sultanas – I’d normally add these but I don’t have any πŸ™

Finely slice the bananas and – depending on their ripeness – either mash them with a fork or chop chop chop them into pieces. Add to a large mixing bowl.

Add the flour, and a teaspoon of bicarbonate or baking powder if using plain flour.

Add the egg and milk (and sultanas if you have them, sulk…) and mix together with a fork to form a smooth batter.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add a tablespoon of batter. Cook on a medium heat for a minute or two on each side. Repeat until all of the batter is used up.

Serve in a heap with optional lemon, sugar, honey, warmed peanut butter – the choice is yours!
