Ingredients for people

    For the batter
  • Self raising flour : 400 g
  • Baking powder : 2 Tsp
  • Whole egg(s) : 2 whole
  • Caster sugar : 20 g
  • Semi-skimmed milk : 600 ml
  • Unsalted butter : 100 g

    For the fruit
  • Banana(s) : 3 whole
  • Honey : 100 g
  • Unsalted butter : 25 g
  • 1For the batter:

    In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, flour and baking powder.

    Beat the eggs together and add the milk. Melt the butter and add this to the milk mixture. Whisk to combine well.

    Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and then slowly whisk in the milk mixture to make a thick, smooth batter.

  • 2For the bananas:

    Peel and slice the bananas. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add the butter. Fry the bananas in the butter until golden brown on both sides. Remove from the heat and carefully stir in the honey to coat evenly. Keep to one side.

  • 3To cook and serve:

    Melt a knob of butter in a pancake pan or large frying pan over a medium heat. Spoon in a large tablespoon of the pancake batter and repeat so that you have 3 to 5 pancakes cooking at the same time. Cook for about 3 minutes until the batter in the centre is cooked. Check that the pancakes are golden brown underneath and then turn over and cook for a further couple of minutes.

    Remove from the pan and top with the bananas.

Chef's tip

«To save time the batter can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for up to 2 days. Whisk thoroughly before using. »
