Banana pancake goodness.

This is just a quick one, as I am really really meant to be tidying our house as we speak. We have both been sick in the last little while, with Richard only just returning to work tonight after 2 weeks off, so I am sure you can imagine what a treat our house is at the moment.

But. I wanted to share these with you.

Neither of us felt that much like cooking this evening, so I decided on banana pancakes. And yes we did eat them on the coffee table (the dining room table is covered with my latest thrift store finds, but more about that later). They were delicious, moist and just the right texture. You know, a few crispy bits on the outside, hot and a little runny from the banana on the inside.

You too can make these treats!


1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon natural unrefined sugar

2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten

1 cup milk (I used soy)

2 tablespoons oil of your choice (I used sunflower)

2 ripe bananas, mashed


1. Combine dry ingredients in one bowl. Mix together wet ingredients in another (make sure you beat the egg first).

2. Stir two mixtures together, don't worry about the lumps.

3. Lightly oil your skillet and heat it over a medium-high heat. Pour or scoop around about 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Cook until golden brown (your first flip will be when you see bubbles on the top of the batter) on each side.

4. Eat and enjoy!

Of course, these are easily made vegan just by using an egg substitute (which we sadly didn't have).

Time to tidy. Enjoy your day!

Wow, I really, really want to make these!! I'm going to copy the recipe and I'll make them once I've bought a new griddle, perhaps in Scotland next month. I threw my old one away and I haven't had one for a long time. My husband would adore these pancakes too!

These look scrumptious! My husband and I LOVE panckaes and we will be trying these! I think we could eat pancakes everyday! We make apple-banana pancakes that are pretty darn good that even my mom will eat them, (and she does NOT eat pancakes)! But thanks for sharing your banana pancakes, I look forward to cooking and eating them.

So funny to see your Kathie Winkle plates! I used to collect that pattern in thrift stores & when I met C, he had a near complete set of the same pattern!
