Recipe of the Week: Peanut and Banana Pancakes

16 February is Shrove Tuesday, a religious festival celebrated all over the world, and a common celebration is cooking pancakes! This is a way to use up “luxury” ingredients ahead of the 40 days of fasting known a Lent… and if we’re celebrating in style then this banana and peanut recipe will be a hit with the whole family!

Serves 4

Total Time: 20 minutes

Plain Flour 200g
Baking Powder 2 tsp
Caster Sugar 1 Tbsp
Cooking Salt ½ tsp
Salted Butter 25g
Semi Skimmed 300ml
Vanilla Essence 1tsp
Medium Banana 1
Smooth Peanut Butter 85g
Oil 45ml
1. Heat a non-stick or flat griddle pan over medium heat.
2. Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together in a mixing bowl. Combine milk, banana, peanut butter, egg, oil and vanilla extract in a separate bowl; pour into the flour mixture and whisk together until thoroughly mixed.
3. Use a tablespoon to measure and pour the pancake batter in portions onto hot pan. Cook until tiny air bubbles form on top, 2 to 5 minutes; flip and continue cooking until the bottoms are browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
4. Repeat with remaining pancake batter. Keep finished pancakes warm until ready to serve.
