On the weekend I wanted to make something a bit special for brekky. I normally make a banana smoothie but it was so cold! I decided to stick with the banana theme and make wholemeal banana pancakes. I grabbed this recipe and made a few adjustments to come up with my pancakes. They turned out really nice, so enjoy!
Wholemeal Banana Pancakes
1 cup (130g) wholemeal plain flour
1 tablespoon (20g) raw sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg, beaten
1 cup (250ml) milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 tablespoons (40ml) vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas, mashed
And here’s how I made them…
Heat up a pan to around medium – no hotter! The recipe called for medium-high but it burnt the first couple of my pancakes. I turned mine down and it was fine. Just err on the side of cooler rather than hotter. Cook till both sides are golden and the middle feels fluffy instead of squishy.
I also heated some leftover pancakes up for dessert that night and they were still really good! Just make sure you keep them sealed and in the fridge.
