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)
Approx. 1/4 to 1/2 cup of self-raising flour (30-65g)
- Mush the banana in a bowl.
- Add the egg and whisk with a fork so egg is beaten and mixture comes together.
- 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.
- 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.
- Enjoy with whatever makes your heart delight – in my case, blueberries, double cream, and a caramel sauce.
