    • 3 large eggs
    • 125g plain flour, sifted
    • 120ml milk
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons baking powder

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Heat a lightly oiled non-stick frying pan over medium high heat.
    2. Beat eggs in a mixing bowl until frothy, about 2 minutes. Add flour, milk, baking powder and vegetable oil to the eggs and mix to make a batter. Stir mashed bananas into the batter.
    3. Ladle batter in portions onto hot pan. Cook until tiny air bubbles form on top, 2 to 5 minutes; turn and continue cooking until the bottoms are browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Keep finished pancakes warm.
    4. Top pancakes with banana slices or fresh fruit and pour over warm maple syrup.

    Lovely! Really easy to make and taste great  -  27 Feb 2016


    Making this the first time, the batter was really too liquidy. I had to start over. The second time, I cut out two eggs and threw the remaining egg in my blender with the milk, vegetable oil and the two overripe bananas and pureed them until they were uniform. I poured the wet ingredients into a mixing bowl, then folded in the dry ingredients (cutting back the baking powder to two teaspoons instead of two tablespoons) and the chopped banana. Second time around, I had a much better result. The pancakes were good but noone really liked the banana chunks. I would make these again with my changes and omit the chopped banana.  -  26 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
