Below is a recipe we love to use to make banana pancakes at home! Most of the ingredients needed are pantry cupboard basics which makes this recipe easy and efficient for even the laziest of home cooks. If you want to make it EVEN EASIER for yourself do bag a jar of Kumbuk Homemade 'Original Pancake Mix', to which all you have to do is add a little milk of your choice.
350g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 very ripe bananas
2 medium eggs
250ml whole milk OR plant based milk
small knob of butter for frying
2 bananas sliced
1) Sieve the flour, baking powder and a generous pinch of salt into a large bowl. In a separate mixing bowl, mash the very ripe bananas with a fork until smooth, then whisk in the eggs, vanilla extract and milk. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, tip in the wet ingredients and swiftly whisk together to create a smooth, silky batter.
2) Heat a little knob of butter in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat. Add 2-3 tbsp of the batter to the pan and cook for several minutes, or until small bubbles start appearing on the surface. Flip the pancake over and cook for 1-2 mins on the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter, keeping the pancakes warm in a low oven.
3) Stack the pancakes on plates and top with the banana slices and a glug of kithul treacle.
Serve and enjoy!
