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!!
140g self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
2 ripe bananas
1 tablespoon of oil
- Mix flour, baking powder and sugar with a pinch of salt
- Slice one banana and mash the other
- Add the mashed banana, eggs, oil and milk to the dry mix
- Whisk to make a smooth batter
- Heat up a non-stick frying pan
- Spoon in batter, leaving space between each one
- Place 2 or 3 pieces of sliced banana on top of each one
- When the pancake starts to bubble – flip it over! (you may need to do this in batches!)
