Banana pancakes

banana pancakes peaches and honey

I love it when the cupboard and fridge are nearly bare, yet somehow it’s possible to make a great meal by throwing together a few of the last remaining things you have.

I ate my pancakes with a sliced peach and honey as that’s what I had on hand, but you can serve them with whatever fruit and toppings you like. Another favourite topping of mine is blueberries, maple syrup and natural yoghurt.

2 eggs

1 ripe medium sized banana

pinch of cinnamon

oil of your choice for frying


With a fork, mash the banana well in a bowl.

Add the eggs and the cinnamon to the mashed banana and combine well.

Place your frying pan on a medium-low heat with about a teaspoon of oil.

Spoon pancake batter into the frying pan – I like to make my pancakes small, about 10cm in diameter.

Cook until golden brown each side and repeat with the remaining batter, only adding more oil to the pan when necessary

Makes approx 5 small pancakes (10cm diameter)
