Banana pancakes -

Ah, lovely, lovely pancakes. They’re a bit of a staple food here, they’re easy and quick to whip up, Betsy can help make them and they taste good too. We’ve had a bunch of very ripe bananas to use up, so we’ve been having these pancakes for the past few breakfasts.

Makes 12 small pancakes. You need:

2 ripe bananas
1 egg
100g self-raising flour
100ml whole milk
1/2tsp ground nutmeg
Handful sultanas

Mash the bananas really well in a bowl with a fork. Add the egg and beat. Sift in the flour, and mix in the rest of the ingredients. Heat some butter and oil in a frying pan and cook a dollop of the batter for a few minutes either side.

Apparently they go really well with bacon, but the idea of banana and bacon weirds me out a bit and I’m happy to just eat them warm with a good drizzle of maple syrup. Betsy chose to have hers with extra sultanas, a drizzle of milk and some sprinkles.
