three-ingredient pancakes

If you’ve just come through 7 years of studies and training to qualify as a solicitor, a banana is just past peak ripeness in your fruitbowl, and you have your last day of holiday left before starting in the proper working world (because obviously traineeships are just a total breeze), then what better way to breakfast? Admittedly that particular set of circumstances may not be overly relatable to 99.9% of people out there, but if just the banana aspect resonates with you then I’d say you can still enjoy this breakfast delight.

(serves 1 – but I do really like pancakes; makes 5 Scotch-type pancakes aka “drop scones” in other parts of the world)

1 banana
1 egg
Approx. 1/4 to 1/2 cup of self-raising flour (30-65g)

  1. Mush the banana in a bowl.
  2. Add the egg and whisk with a fork so egg is beaten and mixture comes together.
  3. Add the flour and whisk to combine – don’t over-beat – add just enough to get it to a thick but pourable consistency. Add a pinch of salt.
  4. Heat a frying pan over medium heat; lightly grease the bottom; drop in small ladlefuls and cook on one side for 2-3 minutes until it starts to bubble, then flip.
  5. Enjoy with whatever makes your heart delight – in my case, blueberries, double cream, and a caramel sauce.

  1. Until I stopped buying bananas, I’d been doing this too! Except baking soda in lieu of the flour. And I added a tablespoon of cocoa powder and the same of honey or agave syrup.

    1. Did you stop buying bananas for a particular reason? I find it’s sweet enough with the banana (though admittedly often top with golden syrup!) but might try the cocoa 🙂

      1. Well, I’d buy them and forget about them, sad things. And I do my shops at Aldi usually and don’t care for their bananas. But I still like bananas a lot 🙂

Outraged? Hungry? Thrilled? Want to say hi?
