Today, I Am Grateful For...


Sunday Pancakes.

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.

Have you tried these types of pancakes before?
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

  3. i've been meaning to try the banana and egg pancakes for a while now but for some bizarre reason never got around to it... i think these yummy looking pictures may be about to change that, however!

  4. I've tried them before, they turn out surprisingly well despite how simple they are! I love the idea of a stack of pancakes but I can't help eating them as they're cooked so I'm only left with one by the time I'm done...

  5. Never worry about pancakes being a bit unhealthy...they have 'cake' in the title..so what more can you do but slosh on a bit more maple syrup!

  8. Mmmm, donut peaches and cinnamon on home-made pancakes - genius idea! I love banana pancakes so much. Have you tried making savoury ones with a bit of cheese and spinach?
