For this week’s post, I am going to be sharing a banana pancake recipe which turned out like American or Scotch pancakes which I really enjoyed; they were so yummy! The great thing about this recipe is that it does not have any sugar, all the sweeter is from the banana! If your friends do not like bananas as well, it is impossible to taste it unless you really go wild with the quantity of bananas.
The question with this is, do you have anything with it?
Ingredients (makes 8 pancakes):
- 1 banana (it does not really matter about how big or small the banana is, the bigger it is will just make it taste more of banana)
- 1 large egg or 2 small eggs
- 200g of plain flour (this is about 1 cup)
- 1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
- 300ml of milk (this is again about 1 cup)
- A pinch of salt
- Butter to place in the frying pan for frying
- Mash the banana up in a bowl or jug (a jug will probably make pouring into a frying pan easier).
- Add the egg, flour and bicarbonate of soda and mix well.
- Whilst mixing, add parts of the milk to stop it getting too lumpy.
- Continue to mix and add the milk until all the milk is gone.
- If there is still lumps, either continue mixing or add more milk.
- This part is optional, it will make it taste better, but leave the batter to rest for up to a hour.
7. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat and add a little oil or butter.
8. Ladle around some of the batter into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
