Banana pancakes


Serves 4.5

This is a bastardisation and bananaisation of a Nigella recipe, with the salt and sugar removed and banana and cinnamon added.

2 tablespoons melted butter

225g self raising flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 eggs

300ml whole milk

3 crushed bananas

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Put the butter in a pan to melt, then combine the flour, baking powder, eggs and milk in a bowl. It doesn’t need to be a really smooth batter,  just make sure there are no pockets of flour. Stir in the banana, cinnamon and melted butter.

Use a piece of kitchen towel to rub any vestiges of melted butter onto a hot frying pan and put dessert spoons of the batter in. When they start to bubble turn them over. It’ll take a couple of minutes on each side to get them golden.

Yours are nice with maple syrup. Sorry Bert.
