Sweet, soft, melt in your mouth goodness. That is what I am grateful for today... Food.
I think everyone has heard of the 'two ingredient' pancakes before; one banana, two small eggs, you know the ones - they're taking the health world by storm. I simply prefer the taste of these to normal pancakes, and I cook them in butter, so, um... health-freaks, look away now.
Either way, these are uber simple and make a delicious sunday brunch treat. They're not something I have often - mainly because the painstakingly slow process of cooking them one by one is enough to put me off - but once you have that first mouthful, you remember exactly why you bothered!
♥ Simply add one super ripe, mushed banana and two small-ish eggs to a blender, or beat by hand if you prefer. I add a drop of vanilla extract and a pinch of cinnamon to mine for extra sweetness!
♥ Blitz it all up and warm up your pan to a medium-low heat. I personally use an individual fried-egg type pan as I think the smaller these are, the easier they are to 'flip,' plus they come out perfectly round, which pleases me greatly.
♥ Add a smidgen of butter/coconut oil/whatever you fancy to grease the pan slightly, then add your mixture. I used a tablespoon to scoop it out and about 3 tbsp was enough to fill it and was still easy enough to flip!
♥ These do tend to cook fairly quickly, so keep your eyes peeled to the underneath of your pancake! Then, using a spatula, gently turn it over and cook for a few more seconds. Gently being the focus here.
♥ I like to cook all of mine in one go, then eat as a pile; so you're gonna need some tinfoil to cover them up as you go, but don't worry, that keeps everything nice and warm as you stack them up!
♥ Next... The toppings. Possibly the best part of any pancake. I opted for strawberries, donut peaches, agave nectar and a dash more cinnamon, as that's what I had laying around, but anything you like will do!
And finally, admire your art - take a few instagram snaps, because the world loves pancakes - et voila! Tuck in. A beautifully light, sweet Sunday treat.
