2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes
- 2 ripe or medium-ripe banana
- 4 large eggs
- Mash the bananas until they are nice and smooth. A few small lumps is fine but the smoother the better.
- Whisk your eggs thoroughly, so they are completely combined.
- Mix the eggs into your banana mash. Don’t worry if it’s quite runny, this is normal.
- Heat your pan over a medium heat.
- Once the pan is nice and hot (drop a few drops of the batter or water in to check) put in 2 or 3 tablespoons of your batter. It’s important to keep the pancakes small to make sure they cook correctly.
- Let your pancake cook for about 1 minute on the first side until the bottom is turning golden brown. Turn it over carefully with a spatula (no high-flying flips for this recipes please!)
- Cook for a minute or two on the second side until it is set. Once this is done you can carefully turn the pancake over and cook on the first side again if desired.
- Watch the pancake immediately disappear as hungry family/friends swarm over to taste it. Continue until you run out of batter.
These are delicious topped with butter, sugar & lemon, yogurt or raspberry coulis (http://bit.ly/2tZhZO5).
You can add chocolate chips after flipping the pancake for the first time, but this can make the pancake a little less stable.
