Mr Six cooks up a mean veggie breakfast at the weekend.
But this morning I got up, leaving Mr Six to have a lie in, and decided to whip up these delicious little pancakes for our boys.
I’m not a fan of sugary breakfasts and school days see our children reaching for either a healthy cereal with fruit or Marmite on toast. But a long weekend off calls for something special. A treat.
I started by whizzing three bananas up in the blender, then I added two eggs and whizzed a little more.
I warmed a small amount of oil in the frying pan and poured three little ‘puddles’ of banana batter in. You might find it difficult to flip these little pancakes, but let them develop a pleasing, light brown crust before attempting to move them (I found loosening them with a fish slice/palette knife and ‘bracing’ them against a wooden spoon made it a lot easier).
The batter made 15 little pancakes, which I kept warm whilst cooking each batch – then I piled them on to plates and served with a drizzle of syrup (I did say we were having a treat) and a handful of blueberries and a few raspberries.
These went down a storm. Teen 2 said that he would alter this to 2 bananas and one egg for breakfasts whilst at uni. He also said that he would like to try it with natural yogurt and fruit, leaving out the the syrup.
So there you have our easy weekend breakfast. Enjoy!
