If you have kids, they will love this recipe. If you have fussy kids, they will love these yummy banana pancakes. Great for Saturday morning breakfast or after school. So my fellow blogger, Lindsay from Always Make Thyme is sharing her recipe here, on my blog. Over to you Lindsay.
Weekdays are busy. Rushing to work, taking the kids to school, getting caught in traffic. It’s no wonder that we don’t have a lot of time in the mornings to sit down and have a nice family breakfast. As long as everyone manages to eat something for breakfast in the week then generally we’re doing pretty well. Now, by no means am I suggesting to you to sit down and have a big family breakfast through the week. I know that’s not always possible, plus, eating pancakes every day is probably not a great move either! What I am suggesting is that we use our weekends to make family breakfast time a priority, and what better way to start than with Banana Pancakes? This recipe is really easy and is one that you can get the kids involved in too. For the more adventurous taste buds why not mix a bit of ground cinnamon through the batter? With or without, this breakfast is still a winner all round.
(Makes 6-8 pancakes)
125g self raising flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
40g of soft brown sugar
2 large eggs
110ml whole milk
3 ripe bananas, 2 mashed and 1 sliced
20g of melted unsalted butter, plus more for cooking.
Pinch of salt
Lots of maple syrup!
In a large bowl mix the self raising flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together and then make a well in the middle.
Add in the 2 mashed bananas along with the melted butter, eggs and whole milk. Whisk everything together until there are no flour lumps left in the mixture.
Heat a little unsalted butter in a large frying pan. Once the butter is bubbling slightly, pour in small dollops of the mixture making sure to leave enough space in between. I would recommend cooking two pancakes at a time.
Cook for a couple of minutes on one side over a medium heat. When bubbles begin to appear on the surface of the pancakes carefully flip them over and then cook for a further minute or two or until well browned.
Continue this process until all the batter has gone. Serve your pancakes with some extra sliced banana on top and lots of maple syrup!
Thank you so much Lindsay. I know what we’re having for breakfast tomorrow morning! If you are running out of ideas for what to cook for your family and kids, please go and check out her recipes here. They are easy to follow and make and are very tasty.
