So today is the day. The day of pancakes. Everybody say “PANCAKES”. Can anyone remember what it’s all about? I’m sure somewhere deep in my brain I can but sadly I’m just too distracted by the smell of batter cooking and lemon juice.
My favourite pancakes however aren’t of the traditional variety. I originally found this recipe on @millycookbook and I just like to fluff it up a bit sometimes. Milly advocates that a little bit of what you fancy sometimes does you good, and I couldn’t agree more!
These beauties still can only contain three ingredients but taste hella amazing and are a tiny bit healthier without you even knowing. Swirl cocoa nibs through, a bit of cinnamon in the batter or add a bit of vanilla essence to the mix, what ever you fancy. Happy flipping pancake day! Sorry.
- 1 medium free range egg
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 tablespoon of self raising flour
- Heat up 1 tsp of olive/coconut oil into a frying pan.
- Whisk all the ingredients together and let it sit for a few minutes.
- When the pan is nice and hot dollop in the mixture. I like to make smaller pancakes and stack them.
- When bubbles start to appear in your batter you know they are ready to be flipped! They should have little dark bits on them but not be totally black.
- Top with what ever you like. I’m a chocolate and strawberry girl but a bit of maple syrup and some pecans wouldn’t make me sad either…
- P.S. Sometimes mine look like pancake mush in the bottom of the pan but they still taste great so you know, viva la pancakes.
Lots of love, K x
