Breakfast in Bed Banana pancakes

Breakfast in Bed…

Such a treat isn’t it…

Especially in the current set of circumstances, when most people don’t even have time to EAT breakfast, let alone make it and take it back to bed (with or without a significant other!)… which is why this kind of zippy fast breakfast treat is a wonderful recipe for weekend bliss!

One particular weekend morning – when I couldn’t sleep past 8am… and HIM was still snoozing away… I snuck down the stairs, did some emails, surfed the world-wide web… and then stared at the fruit bowl… or should I rather say “fruit bowlS”… as we had just purchased enough fruit to keep a little Island well fed…

But sadly, we never get to enjoy every single piece of fruit when it is at its perfect ripeness… and now we had 2 lonely banana’s whose skins were starting to get a bit blotchy….

Thankfully – I had found the recipe from the BBC Good Food Magazine (January 2013 issue) offering a *lazy brunch* kind of recipe. I omitted the crispy bacon – and decided that a few teaspoons of sugar mixed with cinnamon – along with a good lashing of maple syrup would be more than sufficient! I also swapped out the butter for some canola oil…

This is definitely a recipe that I would make again … it makes about 12-14 saucer sized pancakes and also keeps well for the next days lunchbox!!
