2 tablespoons melted butter
225g self raising wholemeal flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
300ml whole milk
1 crushed banana
Handful of fresh or frozen raspberries
Mash the banana together with the raspberries and melt the butter. Stir the rest of the ingredients into the fruit and use the traces of melted butter in the pan to grease a hot frying pan. Fry dessert spoons in batches, turning over when they start to bubble. Cook till golden on both sides and firm.
Do not attempt this with plain wholemeal flour – you will get flat, dry patties.
Bert’s dad’s on a health kick and this is my attempt to make our normal weekend banana pancakes daddy-friendly. Apparently the maple syrup was missed. (I wouldn’t know – mine were drowned in it.)
