Ingredients (makes around 8 when using a large banana)
1 oz sugar
2 oz plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg, beaten
Making the batter
- Mash the banana with a fork
- Add the sugar, flour and baking powder and mix together.
- Finally add the beaten egg. You'll end up with a gloopy batter.
- Heat sufficient vegetable oil for shallow frying in a small pan, you don't need loads though.
- Drop in two dessert spoons of batter per pancake and cook for around 30 seconds - you'll see bubbles start to form around the edges.
- Test with the edge of a spatula and see if they're ready to flip over. They'll puff up a little and be browned on both sides when done.
The one on the right wasn't quite cooked enough to flip and went splat. It doesn't really matter though, it'll still taste good.
- Drain briefly on kitchen towel and then sprinkle with sugar. Try to at least return to the table before stuffing them in your mouth.
In the unlikely event you have any left over, they're also good cold for the kids' lunchboxes.
Minutes, I'm telling you.

PS. Those of you who were flummoxed as to the whereabouts of the devil in my last post - you need to look at her shawl. The fringe forms his beard and you can see his mouth in one of the creases and an eye made of blue paisley. Admittedly it looks more like Big Ears (from Noddy) than Satan to me, but hey - that's how the story goes and who am I to question it?
