Recipe: Banana Breakfast Pancakes

So the weekend is fast approaching and I thought I'd share with you a little treat that I like to whip up now and again. Banana breakfast pancakes! Now I made these last Sunday and had plenty left over for a little Monday morning birthday treat before heading off to work. These were originally a Paul Hollywood recipe that I adapted to make them a little more interesting as his were rather bland (Sorry Paul!). Paul originally said that the recipe makes 25 pancakes, but I find that it makes about 10 decent sized ones.

200g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
Approx. 100g Icing sugar (add more or less to sweeten to taste)
Pinch of salt
1 medium egg
300ml full-fat milk (I use semi-skimmed to make them slightly healthier)
1 tbsp melted butter, plus extra for frying
1+1/2 bananas (or any other fruit; strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl and mix well. In another bowl crack the egg and beat it with the milk. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and slowly whisk in the milk and egg mixture, until you have a smooth batter. Melt the butter in the microwave and mix with the batter. Stir in as much of the icing sugar as you want, until it tastes sweet enough. Add in your chosen fruit and mix well to distribute throughout the batter. Heat up a large frying pan with the extra butter. Once you pan is hot, add 3 lots of batter into the pan (allowing a couple of tablespoons of the mixture for each one). Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. These are incredibly filling and you'll only want 2/3 at most, but if making for multiple people, repeat until you have used all or most of the batter up (adding more butter to the pan if needed). As the pancakes are cooked, stack them on a plate and cover with a tea towel. Once the pancakes are cooked, serve them immediately and enjoy! I drizzled mine in golden syrup and served them with the remaining banana on the side.

Hope you enjoy, thanks for reading!
