Simple Banana Pancakes for all the Family
Have you got bananas on the tun? Take those overripe, blackened bananas and turn them into sweet and fluffy American-style pancakes. Serve with syrup and tasty treats.
- 350g Self-raising Flour
- 250ml Whole Milk Butter (for frying)
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 2 Very Ripe Bananas
- 2 Medium Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- To Serve (We recommend)
- 2 Just ripe Bananas (sliced)
- Maple Syrup (optional)
- Pecan Halves (toasted and roughly chopped) (optional)
- Sieve the flour, baking powder and a generous pinch of salt into a large bowl.
- In a separate mixing bowl, mash the very ripe bananas with a fork until smooth, then whisk in the eggs, vanilla extract and milk.
- Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Our tip: wet the ingredients and swiftly whisk together to create a smooth, silky batter.
- Heat a little knob of butter in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 2-3 tbsp of the batter to the pan and cook until small bubbles start appearing on the surface.
- Flip the pancake over and cook for 1-2 mins on the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter. Our tip: keep the pancakes warm in a low heat oven.
- Stack the pancakes on plates and top with the banana slices, then pile on those treats to serve, we love a glug of sticky syrup and a handful of pecan nuts.
