This super-easy pancake recipe makes enough to feed our (greedy) family of three. You can easily double it to feed more people.
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup (125ml) milk
  • splash vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (130g) self-raising flour (I often use spelt flour with 1 tsp baking powder instead)
  • large knob of butter, melted
  1. Mash the banana in a large bowl, then whisk in the egg, milk and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Sift in the flour and stir until just combined. (You don’t have to sift the flour, but I find it makes for fluffier pancakes.)
  3. Stir in the melted butter.
  4. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry tablespoons of the batter, allowing it to spread a little as it cooks. When bubbles appear on the surface, flip the pancakes over and cook until lightly golden. You’ll need to add a little extra oil to the pan for each batch of pancakes.
  5. Transfer the pancakes to a tray lined with kitchen paper and keep warm in a low oven.
  6. Reheat leftovers in a toaster and spread with extra butter.
