How to make Eggless Banana Pancakes/Crepes - Great Breakfast Idea for Kids

Does this happen to you?

You buy a bunch of bananas and before you can finish them, they are starting to get over-ripe. (yes, I mean black!)

It happens to me all the time and I hate over-ripe bananas!

The solution? - These quick and delicious Eggless Banana Pancakes



Why?

They are quick and easy to prepare and since my hubby and 2 year old love them so much, they get over in a jiffy! - a win-win situation for all :)

Yes, yes... they are that tasty! More than the conventional Banana Pancake recipes out there. These pancakes just melt in your mouth, leaving behind a subtle, lovely banana flavour and a desire for more.


Don't believe me? Try them out for yourself :)

And if you are like my hubby, you might secretly will those bananas to go black in the hope of these delicious treats ;)


When I first made banana pancakes, I found them a bit too floury (is that a word?) and didn't quite like the texture or the taste.

So, the next time I made them, I decided to improvise. The result was this recipe that I am going to share with you, that uses a minimum quantity of flour and makes the banana the hero of the dish. (This is the result of of watching Masterchef Australia these days :P)

In addition, these Banana Pancakes are eggless. I somehow like them that way. But, you can add eggs if you wish. I like the pancakes to be as much banana-y (that's definitely not a word, but you get the point!) as possible.

Ingredients

2 big ripe bananas
2 tablespoons milk
4 tablespoons flour/maida (adjust as required)
1teaspoon baking powder
1 cardamom powdered
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon sugar (or as required)
Oil for frying

Method

  1. In a blender, blend together the bananas, milk, powdered cardamom, sugar and salt.
  2. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and add to it the baking powder.
  3. Add to this the flour, in portions, stirring well to prevent the formation of lumps. (Stop adding flour once the mixture is of the right consistency. Alternatively, if the mixture is too thin, add some more flour.)
  4. NOTE: It is ideal to sift together the flour and the baking powder, but if you are in a hurry this works out fine too.
  5. Heat some oil in a pan. When hot, pour a spoon full of the batter onto the pan and spread it out slightly to form a thick round pancake. 
  6. Fry on one side till golden brown and bubbles appear on top. Then flip them over and fry the other side till golden brown.
  7. Drain the pancakes on a paper towel and serve hot with honey or jam of your choice. 
Note: You can even thin down the batter by adding some milk/water and use it to prepare these delicious Banana Crepes.

Well, that's it from me. Now it's your turn.
