What do you make for breakfast when you have bananas, eggs, milk and flour? Banana pancakes of course!
Ingredients (made 6 good sized pancakes.
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 🙁
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!
