So as you can tell Iโ€™m a huge lover of food and cooking. Over the recent weeks though Iโ€™ve been so busy working Iโ€™ve really slacked on the recipe front! But Iโ€™m back and with something everyone will love! Not a healthy option, if youโ€™re after that then use this recipe Quick banana pancakes but a proper comfort food recipe. So hereโ€™s my perfectly fluffy American style pancakes!

What youโ€™ll need

  • 180g of all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar (optional)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 240ml of milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of oil


  1. Take your ingredients and add them to a mixing bowl.
  2. Smash your banana and add that to the bowl along with the milk and oil.
  3. Using a whisk or power whisk mix it all up creating a batter.
  4. Using a large ladle add one scoop of batter to the centre of a boiling pan, you want to create a circle as big as a cereal type bowl.
  5. Youโ€™ll see it start to bubble, at this point flip your pancake over and transfer to a plate once cooked through. (They only take a couple of minutes each side)
  6. Your batter should make roughly 6-8 pancakes.

My kids love these for breakfast, so once Iโ€™ve made a stack we chop some fruit, drizzle some honey and sprinkle a bit of icing sugar. If you ask Connor though heโ€™ll smother his in Nutella every single time!!
