Banana Pancakes

So as per usual I had some bananas getting a bit too ripe. Rather than make a cake or muffin I was thinking something the kids could eat for breakfast and which could make for a good snack for morning tea. So I decided on banana pancakes. To get my daughter to eat them I even added some sprinkles in to a few batches! Alternatively I added a sprinkle of cinnamon to some others ๐Ÿ™‚


  • 250g Self Raising flour
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 Tablespoons of raw sugar
  • 3 ripe bananas (around 190g when mashed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Add flour, bicarb and sugar to a bowl and whisk together.
  • Make a well in the centre.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg, milk, mashed banana and vanilla extract together.
  • Add wet ingredients to the bowl with dry ingredients and mix until just combined. It will be lumpy so do NOT overmix
  • Add butter to a pan preheated to medium heat and gently swirl around pan.
  • Add scoops of mix to the pan (I use a small icecream scoop to stop it getting messy!)
  • At this point I add some sprinkles or a tiny bit of cinnamon (optional)
  • Flip pancakes when the bubbles appear and cook other side until golden brown.
  • Serve warm or allow to cool as you please ๐Ÿ™‚
