How to make banana pancakes
Makes 6 servings
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbs white sugar
2 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
1 cup milk
2 tbs vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Take a separate bowl, mash bananas and mix them with a beaten egg, milk and oil. You can also add a little bit of vanilla essence if you wish.
Now slowly stir the flour mixture into your banana mixture. One tablespoon at a time and mix it well. Your batter might turn out slightly lumpy, but don't worry about it too much!
Heat a skillet or a griddle to medium-high heat and add a splash of oil. When the oil has heated up, add a scoop of batter onto the griddle. Aim for approximately 1/4 of a cup for a pancake. Cook each side for a few minutes until your banana pancake turns golden brown.
Serve while hot with your favorite toppings, like yogurt, blueberries, peanut butter, honey, or maple syrup. Enjoy!
Pro tip: Prepare a batch of pancakes beforehand and warm them up in a microwave for a quick breakfast on any day of the week.
