American Style Banana Pancakes

  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 225ml milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 ripe bananas, 1 mashed, 1 sliced

American Style Banana Pancakes

  1. Using a fork, mash one of the bananas into a bowl. Thinly slice the other banana and place aside.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, milk, vanilla extract, vegetable oil and mashed banana.
  4. Mix the two bowls together to make the batter.
  5. Heat a lightly-oiled large frying pan.
  6. Spoon a ladle full of batter onto the frying pan. Repeat so that you have 2-3 circles of batter in the pan, ensuring that they don’t run into each other. Carefully push a few slices of banana onto the tops of the pancakes.
  7. Cook until the tops of the pancakes start to bubble and the underside is golden brown, then flip them over.
  8. Cook further until the other side is golden brown, then transfer the pancakes onto a serving plate. You may wish to put the pancakes in the oven on a low heat to keep warm.
  9. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter.
  10. Serve the pancakes with a drizzle of maple syrup if desired. Add bacon for that classic American style!
