Combine flour, caster sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.
Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the pan, using approximately 4 tablespoons (60ml) for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.

No-one in my family keen I'm afraid. Found them gloppy even after trying to cook them for longer and then on a higher heat. Think the banana/pancake combination didn't work from a consistency aspect. Plus, even though I don't have a particularly sweet tooth, I found I felt it needed more sugar to compensate for lack of flavour. - 25 May 2014
Lovely, got thumbs up from 2 of my 3 kids (number 3 is almost impossible to please tho). Would recommend spreading the batter fairly thin as the first couple I did rose well but were a bit undercooked in the middle, thinner ones were gorgeous :-) - 05 Jan 2014
