Here is how my American pancakes with caramelised bananas turned out:
|Pancakes with caramlised bananas.|
I first started by preparing the batter of flour, milk, eggs, melted butter and a pinch of salt.
|Ingredients for pancakes|
Once the ingredients were in-cooperated I ladled 2-3 spoonfuls of batter into the pan which made 2-3 pancakes.
Recipe for American pancakes (Makes about 6)
3 large eggs
1 mug of self-raising flour
1 mug full fat milk
a knob of unsalted butter, melted
a pinch of salt
sunflower oil for cooking the pancakes
unsalted butter for cooking the pancakes
2 ripe bananas, sliced
unsalted butter for cooking the bananas
2 tbsp dark muscavodo sugar
Mix together the flour, milk eggs, melted butter and pinch of salt. Heat a tablespoon of oil and a little butter in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat the butter gives the cooked pancakes a lovely nutty flavour.
Ladle 2-3 spoonfulls of batter into the pan making 2-3 little pancakes. Cook the pancakes for about 40 seconds, until the underside is golden and the little bubbles stop appearing on the top of the pancakes. Flip them over and cook the other side until golden brown and the pancakes have risen to about 1cm.
Remove from the pan and keep warm while you continue to cook more pancakes until you have used up all the batter, adding more oil to the pan as needed,
For the bananas, melt the butter and add the sliced bananas to the frying pan alongside the muscavodo sugar. Cook for around 3 minutes and ensure that the pan does not burn.
