Foodie Friday - Banana Pancakes for your own Pretty Pancake Party

Taking inspiration from the pretty pancake party we posted yesterday, and as the autumn mornings start to get a little cooler, we thought we'd share our delicious recipe for banana pancakes with you... Mary is definitely making these for breakfast tomorrow! Our favourite indulgence is to drizzle with honey and serve with a scoop of icecream... Mouth. Watering. Already!

Preparation time 5 mins Cooking time 10 mins Serves 10 large pancakes or approx 18 pikelets

1 Cup Self Raising Flour
3/4 Cup Milk
1 Egg
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon to taste
2 Ripe Bananas
Pinch of Salt
(Honey & Vanilla Ice cream for a treat!)

Sift flour and combine flour, milk, egg, cinnamon, ½ banana (mashed) and pinch of salt until batter is smooth (it’s ok if there are some lumps from the squished banana).

Heat Frying Pan on stovetop to moderate heat, add knob of butter.

Slice remaining banana into pieces no thicker than ½ centimetre. Once butter is melted and has coated the surface of the pan, place desired number of banana slices (we suggest 3-5 for large pancakes, or if you’re making pikelets just the one slice for the centre of each pikelet) and pour/spoon batter to coat slices to desired pancake size.

Wait until the surface of the pancake starts to bubble and turn pancake to cook on other side. After each pancake is cooked, remove from pan and place on plate in low oven to keep warm and ready to serve.

When all pancakes are cooked, stack and plate with remaining fresh sliced banana, drizzle stack with honey add a scoop of ice cream and dust with cinnamon... ENJOY!
