Banana Pancakes

This is my new favourite weekend morning breakfast! The only problem is, I have to patiently wait all week for a couple of bananas to overripen: rare in our house. I used this recipe but substituting homemade buttermilk (milk with some lemon juice left for a few minutes); I reckon real buttermilk would give an even fluffier result. I halved this recipe to make enough for two.


  • 200g (1 1/3 cups) plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 55g (1/4 cup) sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 250g mashed banana
  • 330ml (1 1/3 cups) buttermilk
  • 40g butter, melted
Combine all of the ingredients together, stirring until the flour is no longer visible. Fry in dollops until golden brown (about a minute) and then flip for another minute. Serve with sour cream, maple syrup, and strawberries.
