Today is pancake day, so I decided to test out how to make banana pancakes using only bananas, eggs, blueberries, baking powder and a little oil (other ingredients optional), as inspired by BBC Good Food’s American Blueberry Pancakes recipe. For an easy-to-make banana pancakes recipe, there’s also one I found from Eugenie Kitchen (3-Ingredient Banana Pancakes) – I decided to stick closer to the BBC one in terms of the amount of baking powder used, and stirred in the blueberries while cooking as well.
The basics are: take the following healthy looking stuff, mash and mix with some baking powder, then place the pancake mix in a flat frying pan and cook it for around 2 mins each side.
Total prep/cooking time: 15-20 mins (depends on how quick you are with stirring)
Ingredients (in order of mixing):
- 2 bananas (medium, ripe)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- OPTIONAL: 2 drops vanilla extract
- OPTIONAL: a dash of salt
- 2 eggs (medium)
- 150g blueberries
- Some oil for frying
