My youngest (Miss 9) went on her first school camp this week. I was so nervous about her going, being my baby and all. However I was also worried about her being cold, did I pack her enough clothes and blankets? I woke really early on Wednesday morning as I couldn’t sleep, I had a bowl full of overripe bananans so I thought I’d make her some yummy banana pancakes before she goes off to camp. Usually I would never have the time or desire to make pancakes on a school morning, I was just up early worried about her going away for 2 nights… needless to say she came home yesterday happy and with so many stories.
These pancakes were easy to make, light, fluffy and delicious.
- 1 overripe banana, peeled
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 50g butter, melted
- 1 1/2 cups self raising flour, sifted
- Place banana into an electric mixing bowl, with whisk attachment on medium-high mash banana until smooth
- Add in eggs, milk and vanilla, mix until well combined
- Pour melted butter into bowl along with the flour, stir until blended together, do not over mix.
- Heat frying pan on medium, add a teaspoon of butter to pan, swirl to melt
- Place large spoonfuls of batter onto pan, cook until a you see holes forming on top and golden underneath, flip. Once both sides are golden and pancake is puffed remove from heat. Repeat to use up all batter
- Serve with maple syrup
