Easy banana pancakes - These light and fluffy American style pancakes are perfect for using up over-ripe bananas from the fruit bowl. Gluten free - try swopping self-raising flour for gluten free alternatives. Dairy free - try almond or oat milk


What you'll need


350g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 very ripe bananas, mashed

1tsp vanilla extract

250ml whole milk

Butter, for frying



Measuring scales

2 mixing bowls

Wooden spoon

Frying pan




How to do it

1. Mix the flour and baking powder in a large bowl.

2. In a separate bowl mash the bananas with a fork - kids are great at this! Whisk in the eggs, milk and vanilla essence. 

3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients bowl and whisk together to form a smooth batter.

4. Add a knob of butter to the frying pan over a medium heat. Add 2-3tsp of batter to the pan and cook for several minutes or until small bubbles start appearing on the surface. Flip pancake over and cook for 1-2 further minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
