Banana Pancakes

DH just flew off to Philippines this afternoon and I'll be home alone with 3 kids and a dog. My biggest fear is, school holidays start tomorrow and I'm sure it will be havoc at home this week. I'll have to grit my teeth while waiting for his return.

I made banana pancakes for our teabreak today. The pancakes are soft but slightly mushy. If you do not like mushy food, don't bother with this recipe. Otherwise, do give it a try as it's really tasty. Even my fussy DD3 ate a piece ^-^

I had wanted to make these into waffles but decided against it in case the batter gets stucked to the iron and I'll have a hard time removing it (I've learnt my lesson the hard way). So I took out my penguin waffle maker instead since there ain't any small grooves and it'll be easier for cleaning up. I'm glad it turned out well and my kids adore them! DD3 prefers the penguin shaped pancakes too.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas, mashed


  1. Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.
  2. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.
