After the big success of our Banana Toast yesterday I decided to try another Mamacook recipe for Millie’s breakfast this morning; Banana Pancakes. I really recommend anyone who is weaning their baby or has a toddler to check out her great baby and toddler recipes – I have been a follower of her blog since Oscar was little so about 2 and a half years now and just love the recipes she posts and I have made many of them over the years!
The banana pancakes recipe is again, really simple (like most of the recipes I tend to make!) and our batch made over 20 small pancakes, which can be frozen – perfect for those extra busy mornings or for a quick snack. I love that our batter was simply mixed together using a blender instead of manually having to mix everything. I had never made pancakes before so was a bit concerned before making these that they would be a disaster but with simple instructions and Millie and Oscar happily playing together I managed to make all 20 pancakes with success – yay!
I served Millie’s pancakes with some small pieces of melon and she wolfed the pancakes down leaving little room for her melon! I’m guessing she is a fan of them! I’m glad this recipe made such a big batch as I can see me defrosting these regularly to keep the little Miss happy. I served our pancakes plain without any syrup or toppings but if you are making them for an older child you could serve them with some syrup, chocolate sauce, ice cream, honey or jam. You could even add a few chocolate chips onto them for a treat!
1 large ripe banana
225g self raising flour (or all-purpose/plain flour with 2tbsp baking powder)
300ml full-fat milk
15g unsalted butter
- Peel and chop the banana. Add the banana, flour, eggs and milk to a blender and blend until smooth.
- Take some unsalted butter and rub it over the surface of a non-stick pan. Pour or spoon blobs of the batter into the pan.
- Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the batter and burst and then flip over. Cook until both sides are browned.
*Our batter made just over 20 small pancakes (perfect baby size). Millie ate two pancakes with some fruit for her breakfast and I froze the rest in ziploc bags. They should keep in the freezer for up to 2 months. To serve, defrost in the microwave and allow to cool before feeding to your baby or toddler.
